.DISCUSSION...

Another day of dry conditions is expected for today across the
area, although the winds are not expected to be quite a gusty as
they were yesterday. Still, sustained winds will remain from the
southwest today, with gusts up to 20 mph possible this afternoon,
and sustained winds between 10 to 15 mph. RH values once again
will be rather low. Yesterday`s RH values were a decent bit lower
than they were originally forecast to be. Right now, RH values
are expected to drop into the lower 20 percent range, but would
not be surprised if they dropped in the middle to upper teens like
they did yesterday. Temperatures will be similar to what they
were yesterday as well.
