NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTH PLATTE NE
417 AM CDT TUE SEP 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE SLIDES EAST TODAY WITH WINDS BECOMING SOUTHERLY
TODAY. EXPECT INCREASING SURFACE MOISTURE WHICH WILL HELP KEEP
MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TODAY FROM 30 TO 45 PERCENT
WEST AND 45 TO 55 PERCENT EAST. WITH INCREASED MOISTURE PERSISTING
THIS WEEK...THIS WILL HELP KEEP MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES FROM
FALLING TOO LOW THIS WEEK AS TEMPERATURES CLIMB INTO THE 80S.
