.DISCUSSION...Dry conditions continue throughout the region.
Expect one more day of dryness before a system comes through on
Sunday with a good bit of rainfall possible throughout the entire
area. Saturday RH values will drop below 40% in the afternoon
again. Winds should stay below 15 kts and thus limit the fire
danger. Fog is not expected to become an issue tomorrow morning.
