...WINDY AND DRY ON MONDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Southerly winds will increase on Monday morning with afternoon
gusts near 30 to 35 mph by early afternoon. Mid level clouds
are expected to move overhead, so this should limit the heating
and keep the RH values in the 30 to 40 percent range.

Looking ahead, cooler and wet weather is expected for Tuesday
through the end of the week with several chances for widespread
rain, even mixed with snow at times.
