...Increasing winds Wednesday with lower humidity...
...A strong cold front to push through late Wednesday
afternoon...

.DISCUSSION...
Winds will turn from an upslope to downslope this evening and
become a touch stronger overnight. A few clouds will drift in from
the north and west, otherwise the next 24 hours should be dry.
Wednesday will be warmer with lower humidity ahead of a cold
front. Winds will get a little erratic in the afternoon as the
battle begins with upslope wanting to drive winds northeastward
and mixing wanting to push winds from the south. Some gusts to 30
mph can be expected Wednesday afternoon. Humidity levels will fall
into the lower to mid 20s as temperatures rise to around 80
degrees. A strong cold front will push into the area late
Wednesday afternoon. This front will cause a strong wind shift to
the northwest with some gusts to 40 mph behind the front into the
evening hours. The chance of thundestorms will increase early
Wednesday evening after the front moves through. TWH
