degrees cooler than Friday, and relative humidity values should
remain above 30 percent. Winds will diminish this evening, before
becoming breezy out of the southwest Sunday afternoon. Expect
minimum relative humidity values of 20 to 30 percent Sunday
afternoon. A breezier day is in store for Monday, as gusty northwest
