Forecast Discussion:

Measurable rains fell over the past 24 hours and so the ground surfaces are sufficiently saturated. Another low pressure system is expected late Sunday/Monday. The winds will pick up in intensity in advance of the next system, however with saturated ground surfaces, little to no blowing dust is expected. Low dust risks are forecast for the entire five day period.
