...Low Relative Humidity Today With Increasing Winds This
Afternoon...

.DISCUSSION...A very dry airmass over the region today will
result in minimum relative humidity values falling into the teens
to lower 20s. Winds will be on the increase, especially along
and west of the Mississippi River this afternoon, as high
pressure slides to the east. Stronger winds are expected on Friday
but humidity values look to improve as dew points increase ahead
of the next storm system. However, we will still see minimum
relative humidity values fall into the 30s at many locations
Friday afternoon. Shower and scattered thunderstorm chances
increase Friday night into Saturday. The highest chances for rain
will be Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.
