.DISCUSSION...
A warm day lies ahead as southerly winds will increase ahead of a
deepening surface low over the Plains. This will aid in moisture
return from the Gulf today with minimum relative humidity values
only falling to around 45-50 percent this afternoon. Wind speeds
will range from 10-15 mph with higher gusts from late this morning
through the afternoon and evening as the surface low and cold front
over the Plains begin to shift southeast toward our region. This
front will bring increasing chances for showers and thunderstorms
on Wednesday through Wednesday night with rainfall amounts ranging
from a half inch to near an inch over most areas with isolated
higher amounts. Cooler and drier conditions will follow on Thursday
in the wake of the cold front. Fog does not appear likely over the
next few days as winds remain quite strong.
