.DISCUSSION...
Dry NW flow aloft will dominate the wx pattern thru Sat. Underneath
this dry flow the low levels will generally warm, although
interruptions due to a frontal boundary may occur on Thur and
Sat. Winds will be noticed little, with brief gusty conditions on
Wed across the n ahead of the front. Ensemble data confirms this
period of tranquil wx with 85h temps anomalys 0 to 1.5 standard
deviations above normal. 8-14 day 5h height anomalys show a
warm/dry signal.
