it looks that way. then, other showers. still, they are moving. so, there is no danger of flooding going on in the showers because they are not sitting over the same place or they are not training. in other words, it is moving on other than the permanent weather map. the remnants and the upper level low. things are quiet across the eastern part of the country. it looks like finally we will see the system begin to move away later tom here is future cast starting at 11:00. again, showing a few scattered showers around the area. but notice tomorrow afternoon. the clouds begin to thin a little bit prosecute raleigh all north and west. most if not all of the showers are beginning to get surpressed south and east by that time. this dry air will continue to make progress southeast ward tomorrow night there may be a low lovely cloud cover on eastern counties on saturday morning. it will burn away. i think the entire region is
