.DISCUSSION...A gradual rise in temperatures and drying trend is
expected over the central and eastern interior Saturday and Sunday
and will continue into the middle of next week. Min RH values will
drop into the 20s over the much of the central and eastern interior

wind criteria are expected to meet criteria through Monday. As the
upper level ridge builds over the eastern and eventually the
central interior temperature criteria will be approached by the

and northern foothills Tuesday and Wednesday as the thermal trough
strengthens over the central interior and surface ridging builds
over the south central portion of the state.
