.DISCUSSION...STRONG HIGH PRESSURE CURRENTLY IN PLACE WILL MAINTAIN
LARGELY FAIR TO POOR CLEARING INDICES TODAY THROUGH TOMORROW FOR
MANY OF THE LOWER ELEVATION BASINS ACROSS THE STATE. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BEGIN TO RETREAT EAST THIS WEEKEND ALLOWING A GRADUAL
IMPROVEMENT TO BOTH TRANSPORT WINDS AND MIXING HEIGHTS ALLOWING
GENERALLY GOOD TO EXCELLENT CLEARING FOR MOST ALL AREAS BY SUNDAY.
