.DISCUSSION...
Diminishing winds overnight as cooler and drier air moves in with
a weak front. Min RH values will be in the teens the next few
days with relatively poor vent rates most areas. A stronger front
brings gusty winds early Tuesday but will lift RH values a bit.
Breezy and warmer by Thursday before yet another front brings
cooler conditions and a slight precip chance for Friday.
