.DISCUSSION...

...Gusty Ridgetop Winds East Early This Morning...
...Cold Front Arrives Later This Morning...
...Thunderstorms This Evening...
...Increasing Thunderstorm Activity This Week...
Updated forecast to indicate later arrival of the thunderstorms
into the area. Thunderstorms are not expected until the evening
hours except for a couple of storms over the mountains. Weak cold
front passed through the area overnight with a slower but
stronger front moving through this morning pushing winds to more
northerly directions. Relative humidity values will be higher
today, but with minimums still around 20 percent early afternoon.
Unsettled weather will continue through the week, as a series of
systems bring increased thunderstorm chances, cooler temperatures,
and higher humidities. AAG/borsum
