.DISCUSSION...
Gusty winds will decrease this evening. Tuesday will be warmer
and less windy. Humidities will again fall into the lower to mid
20s in the afternoon. The big story will be Wednesday and
Wednesday night, as a strong cold front approaches. Ahead of the
front, winds will increase with some gusts of 30-40 mph. These
gusty winds will cause temperatures to surge into the 70s and
humidities fall into the teens. A strong cold front will push in
late Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. This front will
cause a dramatic wind shift to the northwest, with gusts of 40-50
mph. Have issued a Fire Weather Watch for Wednesday afternoon and
night. Areas of snow showers will form along the foothills, with
some light accumulation possible Wednesday night. Thursday will be
much cooler and less windy. TWH
