Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.

Duma member Vyacheslav Nikonov told reporters of Snowden's intentions after he and a dozen other prominent officials and activists met Friday with Snowden in the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, where Snowden has been marooned since June 23.
