DISCUSSION:   A PLUME OF TROPICAL UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO MANIFEST ITSELF AS A DECK OF UPPER CLOUDS WHICH HAS CAUSED MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES TO PREVAIL OVER THE AREA TONIGHT. AT THE SAME TIME, AVAILABLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR SOME LIGHT SHOWERS IN THE VICINITY OF SOME OF THE ISLANDS.

FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS: THE BLANKET OF UPPER CLOUDS WILL CAUSE PARTLY CLOUDY TO CLOUDY SKIES TO DOMINATE; HOWEVER, MOISTURE LEVELS WILL GRADUALLY FALL AND CAUSE LITTLE SHOWER ACTIVITY TO PREVAIL. MODELS ARE SUPPORTIVE OF THIS OUTCOME WHICH THE LATEST FORECAST INDICATES. AS A RESULT, NO CHANGE IS REQUIRED TO THAT PRODUCT AT THIS TIME.
