.DISCUSSION...

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER AND SEASONAL TEMPS
TO THE SITE THROUGH SUNDAY.  A VERY WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL
MOVE THROUGH THE AREA OVERNIGHT INTO SUNDAY.  THIS DISTURBANCE IS NOT
EXPECTED TO BRING ANY PRECIPITATION BUT IT COULD KICK UP THE WINDS LATE
TONIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY AS IT MOVES THROUGH.  A COMBINATION OF LOW
MIXING HEIGHTS AND FAIRLY WEAK TRANSPORT WINDS WILL KEEP AFTERNOON
VENTILATION RATES PRETTY LOW FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
