.DISCUSSION...
A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT OVER THE REGION THIS WEEK
KEEPING DRY CONDITIONS IN PLACE AND ALLOWING FOR A STEADY WARMING
TREND. A WEAK BACK DOOR COLD FRONT WILL SLOW THE WARMING TREND
BRIEFLY MONDAY AND WILL BRING A BRIEF PERIOD OF STRONGER EAST
WINDS MONDAY MORNING. OTHERWISE LIGHT WINDS WILL DOMINATE THE WEEK
AHEAD. MIN RH VALUES WILL BE TRENDING DOWN AS THE TEMP RISES.
DESPITE RH VALUES FALLING TO CRITICAL LEVELS...LIGHTER WINDS WILL
PRECLUDE RED FLAG CONDITIONS. VENTILATION WILL GENERALLY BE ON THE
LOW SIDE IN THE DAYS AHEAD DESPITE THE WARMER TEMPS DUE IN PART TO
FAIRLY LOW MIXING HEIGHTS AND LIGHTER TRANSPORT WINDS.
