.DISCUSSION...

RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE SHOULD ALLOW FOR MOSTLY DRY CONDITIONS
THOUGH SPOT LOCATION IS ON EDGE OF WHERE AN ISOLATED SHOWER
OR THUNDERSTORM COULD DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON. BEST CHANCE OF ANYTHING
DEVELOPING LOOKS TO BE AFTER ABOUT 2-3 PM. OTHERWISE SHOULD BE ON
EDGE OF PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES. AFTERNOON RH VALUES IN 40-50 PERCENT
RANGE THOUGH COULD BE HIGHER LIKE YESTERDAY IF PRECIPITATION OCCURS
OR THICKER CLOUD COVERAGE. INITIAL TRANSPORT WINDS LOOK TO BE LIGHT
OUT OF THE WEST/NORTHWEST THEN SHIFT TO LIGHT NORTHEAST AFTER ABOUT
2 PM. OVERALL...RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND WIND VALUES ARE NOT EXPECTED
TO REACH CRITICAL THRESHOLDS.
