.DISCUSSION...

Early this morning a cold front has moved well South of the Four
State Region and surface high pressure continues to build into
the region with increasing Northwest and Northerly winds of
10 to 15 MPH with higher gusts to near 20 MPH. Dry air aloft and
on the surface will prevail through the rest of the work-week
with no rain expected until the late half of the weekend.
A cold front will move across the area on Thursday and another
on Sunday. The cooler temperatures today will keep the lower
relative humidity levels from dipping as low as yesterday.
The combination of winds, a dry air-mass in place, low relative
humidity levels, and very dry soils and vegetation due to a lack
of significant recent rainfall, will linger the risk of wildfire
ignition. Temperatures will remain near seasonal levels with the
passage of the cold fronts. Due to the dry conditions fog is not
forecast.
