.DISCUSSION...
Southeast to easterly winds around 10 mph will be common this
evening before veering more southerly after midnight. There is a
slim risk for thunderstorms through the evening hours. Although
the chance of a direct storm impact is low, if one does affect
the area it will be capable of producing gusty and erratic winds
in addition to lightning and rain. Winds will gradually veer to
the west of due south while increasing to breezy levels (sustained
at 15 to 20 mph) late Tuesday morning into Tuesday afternoon.
Isolated storms may redevelop Tuesday afternoon, though again the
chances of a direct impact are relatively low. Expect good RH
recovery tonight with humidities falling to around 30 percent
Tuesday afternoon.
