.DISCUSSION...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD CONTINUE TO

INTERIOR. HOWEVER...DRIEST LOCATIONS WILL BE OVER THE SOUTHEAST
INTERIOR WITH MIN RH VALUES FALLING TO AROUND 30 PERCENT. WINDS
WILL REMAIN GUSTY OVER THE NORTHERN INTERIOR THROUGH THIS
THE LATE AFTERNOON DUE TO A THERMAL TROUGH CENTERED OVER THE EASTERN
BROOKS RANGE. THERMAL TROUGH WILL STRENGTHEN AGAIN BY WEDNESDAY

FOR WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. COOLER TEMPERATURES RESUME ON
