...A Bit Cooler Wednesday...Rain Chances Thursday...

.DISCUSSION...After another very mild Tuesday, plan on temperatures
being a bit cooler on Wednesday with highs in the mid 50s to mid 60s
as high pressure builds in from Canada and the Northern Plains.
Otherwise, look for minimum RH values in the 20 to 30 percent range
with north to northeast winds less than 10 mph. A cold front will
then move southeast into the area later Thursday afternoon into
Thursday evening for a chance of showers. Before the front arrives,
look for highs topping off in the upper 50s to middle 60s with
minimum RH values in the 25-35 percent range. West/southwest winds
in the 10 to 15 mph in the morning will shift to the northwest,
gusting to 20 mph in the afternoon. Friday looks to be dry with
highs a bit cooler than normal, in the 50s/60s. Plan on minimum RH
values again in the 25-35 percent range. The weekend will be dry
with warming temperatures. Look for highs by Sunday in the 60s
with breezy south winds of 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
