DISCUSSION...
NO THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY EXPECTED FOR THE REST OF TONIGHT AS MOSTLY
SUNNY CONDITIONS EXIST. A SLIGHT BUMP UP IN MOISTURE IS EXPECTED
OVERNIGHT...SLIGHTLY IMPROVING HUMIDITY RECOVERIES. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL SET UP OVER THE AREA FRIDAY...WITH WEAK TRANSPORT WINDS AND
LOWERING MIXING HEIGHTS. THIS WILL RESULT IN POOR VENTILATION RATES
ALL DAY. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP IN THE AFTERNOON OVER
THE HIGHER TERRAIN EAST OF THE AREA AND MOVE WEST...SO GUSTY AND
ERRATIC WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE. OTHERWISE...LITTLE CHANGE IS
EXPECTED FRIDAY FROM TODAY. AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL BRING
STRONGER WINDS ALOFT THROUGH THE WEEKEND...HELPING VENTILATION RATE
VALUES TO BE GOOD TO EXCELLENT EACH DAY. SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM
CHANCES WILL INCREASE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...ESPECIALLY ON SUNDAY.
