.DISCUSSION...
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE HAS BEEN PROMOTING THE DRY CONDITIONS AND
RELATIVELY LIGHT WINDS THAT HAVE BEEN IN PLACE OVER THE REGION FOR
THE PAST FEW DAYS. BUT ALL THAT WILL BE GOING AWAY SOON...AS LOW
PRESSURE BEGINS TO DEVELOP AND DEEPEN OUT IN THE LEE OF THE
ROCKIES OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. LOOK FOR BREEZY SOUTHEAST
WINDS TO DEVELOP AND PERSIST OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. PRECIPITATION
CHANCES START INCREASING ACROSS THE REGION LATER TONIGHT AND
BASICALLY PERSIST OFF AND ON OVER THE NEXT 7 DAYS.
