PERCENT RANGE. A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE PASSING BY TO THE NORTH WILL
BRING SOMEWHAT COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION ON SUNDAY...WHILE
DRIER AIR ALSO BEGINS TO FILTER IN FROM THE NORTHWEST. THIS DRIER AIR
WILL ALLOW HUMIDITIES TO DROP INTO THE TEENS SUNDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS
SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHWEST ARIZONA.
