...Dry Through the Week With Pockets of Low Afternoon RH...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will continue to keep the weather dry
through the week. Despite some chilly mornings, afternoon

the work week. With that, the potential for humidity to drop
below 30 percent in places during the afternoon will increase.
It looks like the next chance for rain arrives early next week.
