.DISCUSSION...
As high pressure builds over the region the northerly wind this
morning will gradually shift northeast this afternoon. Low level
moisture with the breeze coming in from the Atlantic will allow
for scattered showers near the coast to move inland near the site
by mid morning and into the afternoon. Minimum relative humidity
values remain above 50 percent today. Dispersion will improve to
above 40 but begin to decrease into 20 by the evening hours with a
light drainage wind setting up over the site. Expect a similar
pattern into Thursday with scattered showers moving near the site
with the northeast Atlantic breeze.
