.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL PASS ACROSS THE REGION...RESULTING IN CLEAR SKIES
AND LIGHT WINDS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AFTERNOON RH VALUES WILL FALL
BELOW 30 PERCENT ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA...PROMOTING GOOD DRYING
CONDITIONS.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT EAST OF THE AREA LATE SUNDAY...ALLOWING WINDS
TO GRADUALLY SHIFT BACK AROUND TO A MORE SOUTHERLY DIRECTION.  THIS
WILL RESULT IN AN UPWARD TREND OF TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY FOR NEXT
WEEK.

THE NEXT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS...TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
