.DISCUSSION...

The area will remain under the influence of an upper trough through
Saturday with cool temperatures and relative humidity remaining
above 40 percent.  Flat high pressure is expected Sunday and Monday
although a weak weather system will try to move through the high
pressure and may bring some sprinkles to the fire.  After that look
for warming temperatures Tuesday through at least Thursday as high
pressure strengthens.
