.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will give way to an increase of southerly flow aloft
with mid and high clouds. There is a small chance of afternoon
showers, but they should be isolated and found mostly to the north
of the burn. Clouds will decrease overnight as surface winds become
more northerly and downslope. Anticipate more sunshine on Thursday
with slightly warmer and drier conditions and terrain driven winds.
Next chance of precipitation looks to be Friday night.
