Slight Risk of Thunderstorms

NWS has put a majority of the Pine Belt in their line of "Slight Risk" of severe weather.
I'm currently watching a Complex of storms bullishly running southward throughout the state, but, as expected, the front line is falling apart near Jackson. I'll expect this advancement from the North to continue to fall apart, but our afternoon activity will come from the afternoon instability. Instability mixed with the Gulf moisture will react into scattered thunderstorms this evening.

The weekend forecast will put us on the fringe of a high pressure (stable air mass) positioned over the Carolinas. Since we will be on the edge of the ridge, our forecast for showers is difficult to be precise at this point, but I'm banking on a routine of afternoon showers in the area.
