.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN OVERHEAD TODAY
RESULTING IN LIGHT FLOW...WITH WINDS GENERALLY DRIVEN BY SLOPE
FLOWS. LINGERING MOISTURE WILL LIKELY LEAD TO A FEW AFTERNOON
BUILDUPS...HOWEVER THESE ARE NOT EXPECTED TO LEAD TO SHOWERS OR
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY.

SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT IS FORECAST TO STRENGTHEN TONIGHT
THROUGH THE DAY WEDNESDAY...AS A WEATHER SYSTEM PASSES BY TO
THE NORTH OF THE AREA. THESE WINDS WILL LIKELY BECOME GUSTY
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS AS STRONGER WINDS
ALOFT MIX DOWN TO THE SURFACE.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRIEFLY RETURN THURSDAY...BEFORE THE FLOW
BECOMES MORE SOUTHERLY ALLOWING MOISTURE TO TEMPORARILY SPREAD
BACK NORTH DURING THE DAY FRIDAY. THIS WILL LIKELY LEAD TO
A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
WETTING RAINS DURING THE DAY FRIDAY...AND POSSIBLY LINGERING
THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT AND INTO SATURDAY. UNLIKE THE SYSTEM THAT
CROSSED THE AREA THIS PAST SUNDAY AND MONDAY...THESE STORMS ARE
