.DISCUSSION...

Dry weather will be the rule this week, along with afternoon
temperatures 10 to 20 degrees above normal. High temperatures this
time of year are typically around 60 degrees. Relative humidity
values bottoming out around 15 to 25 percent west of the James River
Valley today will be accompanied by relatively light winds. A dry
cold front sliding across the region Wednesday morning will bring
breezy northwest winds, that will help temporarily knock down
temperatures. Relative humidity values will still fall to around 20
percent west of the James River Valley. Breezy winds out of the
south will return again Thursday and Friday afternoon.
