.DISCUSSION...
Today should be the last very warm day across the area, and
temperatures will trend cooler going into the weekend. A few showers
and thunderstorms developed earlier today near the burn area, but
have since moved to the southeast. Drier west to northwest breezes
have begun to move into the area, therefore, shower and thunderstorm
chances should continue to decrease throughout the afternoon. Not as
warm on Friday, with dry northwesterly breezes developing again in
the afternoon. On Friday evening, a cold front will move into the
area, bringing moist, southeasterly flow.
