.DISCUSSION...

Winds will be much lighter through tomorrow compared to what occurred
yesterday. Cloudy skies and possible sprinkles this morning will
give way to some afternoon sun breaks. This may destabilize the
atmosphere enough for a few showers or thunderstorms late in the
afternoon into early this evening. The strongest cells will be
capable of brief downpours, cloud to ground lightning, and wind
gusts to 25 mph. A warming and drying trend is expected to begin
Friday and carry through at least Tuesday. Above average
temperatures are expected beginning Saturday.
