.DISCUSSION...
Moisture gradually increases through the day with winds initially
out of the south turning to the southwest in the afternoon and
evening. A system to our north will push a cold front into the
area late this evening. An isolated light shower is possible along
the front but the better rain chances will remain to the north
of site. Mixing heights this afternoon range from 2,300-3,000 feet.
A few brief gusts of 12-15 mph are possible at times this afternoon.
Tonight winds shift to the NW behind the front but speeds remain
below 5 mph. Drier air begins to filter into the area Thursday
and minimum RH values could lower to 40-45 percent. Dispersion will
be fair today with increased transport winds but generally poor on
Thursday due to a combination of mixing heights and weaker transport
winds.
