.DISCUSSION...
Strong transport winds ahead of a front today combined with
excellent mixing heights will continue to support excellent
clearing indicies. Mixing heights will remain high on Friday with
steep lapse rates under a passing trough, this will help maintain
excellent clearing despite decreasing transport winds.
Clearing will hit a minimum on Saturday as a cooler airmass
and high pressure bring only marginal mixing and transport
winds.

* All heights are above sea level (ASL) unless noted otherwise *
