.DISCUSSION...

It will be mostly cloudy and a bit warmer this afternoon with
high temperatures reaching the upper 30s north to upper 40s south.
A system approaching from the south will spread areas of light
rain across the region this afternoon into tonight. Winds will
weaken this evening as they shift from southeast to north. Smoke
dispersal will be fair to poor in the overnight hours. Minimum
humidities for Friday will be in the 50 to 60 percent range.

Otherwise, look for warmer and drier conditions beginning late
Friday and Saturday, with highs mainly in the 40s.
