WELL...I WISH I HAD A LITTLE MORE TO TALK ABOUT...BUT TODAY/S
DISCUSSION IS AWFULLY SIMILAR TO WHAT I WROTE YESTERDAY. HERE GOES.

NORTHERLY/NORTHWEST UPPER FLOW WILL SEND SEVERAL WEAK SYSTEMS
THROUGH THE AREA DURING THE LONG TERM PERIOD. HOWEVER...WITH LITTLE
BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE TO WORK WITH...THERE WILL BE LITTLE TO NO
APPRECIABLE PRECIPITATION CHANCES. THERE WILL BE A WEAK FRONTAL
BOUNDARY MOVING THROUGH SOME TIME LATE THURSDAY OR EARLY FRIDAY.
THIS WILL BRING A REINFORCING SHOT OF COOL AIR INTO THE REGION.
