.DISCUSSION...
An area of high pressure will drift east from the northern Gulf
today to a position off the FL peninsula on Wednesday. Meanwhile, a
series of strong low pressure systems will track from the upper
Midwest into New England. The difference in pressure between the
high to our south and the lows to our north will create breezy
conditions across central NC through Thursday.
