.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will build over the region resulting in northerly
winds throughout the day today. These winds will usher drier air
into the region. Minimum RH values today are currently forecast
to be right at 30 percent and any enhanced mixing would result in
RH dropping below 30 percent. Southerly flow is forecast to
redevelop Sunday in advance of an approaching low pressure system.
This will result in increasing humidity and likely thunderstorms
during the day on Monday.
