.DISCUSSION...
RIDGING BUILDS OVERHEAD TODAY AND TOMORROW BRINGING DRIER
CONDITIONS TO THE MAINLAND. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL DROP
TO AROUND 30 PERCENT BUT WINDS WILL NOT BE AN ISSUE WITH A WEAK
PRESSURE GRADIENT IN PLACE. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
WILL MOVE INTO THE NORTHERN GULF OF ALASKA ON WEDNESDAY AND BRING
CLOUDIER AND MORE SHOWERY CONDITIONS...ESPECIALLY TO COASTAL LOCALES.
