...Warmer and drier this weekend...
...Poorer humidity recoveries tonight...

.DISCUSSION...Strong warming and drying will develop tonight and
last through the weekend in response to developing offshore flow.
Gusty northeast winds tonight over the upper elevations will
result in poorer RH recoveries, especially for exposed locations
above 2500 feet. Winds near the valley floor should be lighter
tonight with upslope/upvalley winds during the day on Saturday.
Daytime humidities, however, will likely bottom out in the mid
teens and mid 20`s on Saturday. Gusty ridge level easterly
winds will redevelop Saturday night. Also, there is a slight
threat for isolated thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and evening.
