remains possible early Friday morning before changing to rain.

Gusty winds 25-35 mph from the northwest and 25-40 percent minRH
ongoing this afternoon. Winds will diminish late this afternoon
into the evening, becoming light. Minimum RH values will drop
below 30 percent on Thursday but winds will remain light.
