..DISCUSSION...
A DRY NORTHWEST FLOW WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE REGION FOR THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE TRANSITIONING TO A MORE ZONAL PATTERN WHICH
WILL LEAD TO A WARMUP FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK INTO THE
WEEKEND. A FEW SNOW SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE IN THE SACS OVERNIGHT...BUT
LITTLE IF ANY ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE
GOING TO BE RISING TO AROUND 20 PERCENT AFTER BEING DOWN INTO THE
TEENS AND EVEN SOME SINGLE DIGITS. BESIDES SOME GUSTY WINDS
OVERNIGHT...WINDS WILL HAVE LITTLE IF ANY IMPACT FOR THE UPCOMING
WEEK.
