.DISCUSSION...

THE THREAT OF EXTREME FIRE GROWTH AND/OR ERRATIC BEHAVIOR TO
REMAIN LOW INTO THE COMING WEEKEND AS SUFFICIENT ATMOSPHERIC
MOISTURE IS ANTICIPATED TO KEEP MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY ABOVE
CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. THAT BEING SAID...THE ATMOSPHERE HAS DRIED
OVER THE PAST COUPLE DAYS...WITH THE POTENTIAL OF SUB 25 PERCENT
RH DURING PEAK HEATING ACROSS FAR WESTERN PORTIONS OF ZONES 204
AND 210 SATURDAY AFTERNOON. THE BEST SHOT AT PRECIPITATION COMES
SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING...WHERE SEVERE STORMS MAY BE POSSIBLE
ACROSS THE SANDHILLS AND POINTS EAST. HAIL AND GUSTY ERRATIC WIND
WOULD BE POSSIBLE UNDER/NEAR ANY STORM ON SUNDAY.
