.DISCUSSION...
SOME EARLY MORNING CLOUDS FRIDAY WILL GIVE WAY TO SUNNY SKIES FOR
THE REST OF THE DAY. NORTHEAST TO EAST WINDS WILL PREVAIL AS HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE PACIFIC. A THERMAL TROUGH WILL BRING
OFFSHORE FLOW THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT, BUT THE OFFSHORE COMPONENT
WILL EASE SATURDAY AS THE THERMAL TROUGH MOVES INLAND. RH
RECOVERIES, HOWEVER, WILL REMAIN MODERATE TO POOR THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. IT SHOULD STAY VERY WARM AND DRY EARLY NEXT WEEK, BUT A
STRONG FRONTAL SYSTEM LATE TUESDAY NIGHT OR WEDNESDAY MAY BRING
RAIN AND MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS.
