.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will continue over the area through Sunday keeping us
in a dry weather pattern. Minimum RH values will be around 30 percent

flow develops. Surface winds will be light and variable through the
period, but direction will generally be NE-E Saturday and E-SE Sunday.
Above normal high temperatures in the 80s expected both days. Patchy
fog possible Saturday morning mainly near bodies of water, improving
rapidly with sunrise. Rainfall chances increase Monday with an
approaching frontal system.
