.DISCUSSION...

Gusty westerly winds will be in place through this evening.  Given
the placement of the incident, some eddying may occur around the
ridgeline to the west and lead to more of a northwest wind direction.
The air mass will continue to dry out through early evening
resulting in a sharp drop in humidity levels.  Friday will feature
less wind and slightly higher humidity but still remain on the breezy
side.  A warming and drying trend will commence this weekend.
