.DISCUSSION...

A cold front moving through the area brought wind speeds up
with widespread gusts of 30 to 40 mph. Wile it was dry ahead
of the front, relative humidities stayed above 25 percent in
most areas. Expect calmer winds tonight with good RH recovery.

For Saturday, it will be slightly cooler and less windy. Warmer
on Sunday with record temperatures possible on Monday ahead
of a storm system. Dry conditions are expected ahead of a dry
cold front on Monday. Winds will be from the southwest initially
and could gust in excess of 25 mph. A dry cold front is expected
to move through later in the day with a sudden wind shift and no
wetting rain expected from this front. We will keep an eye on
Monday for possible highlights. Cooler on Tuesday with a chance
for another reinforcing dry cold front on Wednesday.
