Of course, the NOAA notice used all caps. LC kind of dulls the effect... Stupid LJW software..

If it will knock down some of the mugginess, bring it on!

I love this line from the NOAA weather site:

URBAN AREAS MAY BE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO THE HEAVY RAINFALL IF STORMS LOITER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

Okay, you loitering cumulonimbus bums--move along, now! Get a job, why don'tcha?!
