...Dry and Warmer Through Friday...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will provide dry and quiet weather
conditions through Friday. Look for a slow warming trend as well
with highs in the upper 60s to middle 70s. This will be some 15 to
20 degrees above the seasonal norms. The lowest minimum RH afternoon
looks to be on Thursday as values dip into the 30-35 percent range.
Otherwise, plan on afternoon values in the 35-45 percent range.
Daytime winds through the period will be south to southwest in the
10 to 15 mph range during the day. There will be a slight uptick in
windspeed on Wednesday afternoon and again Friday. The next chance
of rain looks to be late Friday night into the weekend as a cold
front slowly makes its way through the region.
