927 AM CDT WED MAY 20 2015

.DISCUSSION...
MOSTLY CLOUDY OR OVERCAST SKIES SHOULD PERSIST FOR MOST OF THE DAY
BUT THERE COULD EVENTUALLY BE SOME CLEARING LATE IN THE AFTERNOON.
THIS WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES DOWN AND THE HUMIDITY HIGHER INTO THE
EARLY AFTERNOON. IF CLOUDS BREAK UP WE SHOULD GET INTO THE 30S
FOR RH...BUT IF THE BURN SITE REMAINS SOCKED IN WITH CLOUD COVER
THEN THE FORECAST WILL LIKELY BE MUCH TOO AGRESSIVE IN DROPPING
THE RH THIS AFTERNOON.
