.DISCUSSION...

Dry, stable southwest flow aloft will continue through Wednesday
with above normal temperatures and poor humidity recovery each
night. North-northeasterly winds are possible tonight, but more
likely late Wednesday night into early Thursday as a weak cold front
moves through the region. By the end of the week, high pressure
looks to build over the region once again pushing temperatures well
above normal.
