.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE WILL MAINTAIN DRY AND WARM WEATHER THROUGH
TODAY AND LIKELY TOMORROW. SOUTH-SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL INCREASE
THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM. THESE
SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL BECOME GUSTY...ESPECIALLY IN THE
AFTERNOONS...AND WILL LIKELY BE STRONG ENOUGH TO OVERCOME MOST OR
ALL OF THE TYPICAL DAY/NIGHT WIND SHIFTS.

A MUCH HIGHER CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

TRANSPORT WINDS TODAY AND TOMORROW...AND GOOD MIXING AS THE STORM
PASSES THROUGH OVER THE WEEKEND. SNOW LEVELS LOOK TO DROP TO

AT TIMES IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION.
