.DISCUSSION...
Cooler and drier air will filter into the region through the day in the wake of
a cold front that pushed through the area early this morning. However,
with afternoon highs only expected to be in the lower 50s, minimum RH
values will only drop to around 50%. Light to moderate northerly winds
will diminish this evening as high pressure settles over the region.

The high quickly shifts east of the area Saturday turning winds out
of the southeast and increasing atmospheric moisture.
An upper trough will move over the region Sunday producing widespread
showers and thunderstorms.
