.DISCUSSION...
Weak high pressure will build down into the area today providing
dry conditions and light northerly flow through tonight. The
high will move off to the east on Wednesday, and this will set
the stage for another cold front to move across late Wednesday
night and Thursday morning with a chance for rain.
