.DISCUSSION...

A SHORT WAVE MOVED ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON. LATER TONIGHT...
A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA. THIS WILL HELP TO KEEP
THINGS MOIST. BY WEDNESDAY...THE PRECIP WILL HAVE MOVED OUT OF THE
AREA AND THINGS WILL FINALLY BEGIN TO DRY OUT A LITTLE. THE RHS WILL
NOT DROP DOWN VERY LOW IN THE NEXT WEEK...SO PRESCRIBED BURNING WILL
BE A CHALLENGE.
