.DISCUSSION...
OUR RELATIVELY QUIET WEATHER PATTERN LOOKS TO CONTINUE THROUGH AT
LEAST THE WEEKEND. TODAY...LIKE YESTERDAY WILL BE SUNNY AND WARM.
WINDS COULD BE BREEZY FROM THE WEST IN THE AFTERNOON...BUT SHOULD
STAY BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS. THEN LATE TONIGHT A COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE IN AND SWING OUR WINDS AROUND TO THE EAST. WE WILL SEE SOME
GUSTY WINDS WITH THE FRONT ESPECIALLY ON THE WEST SLOPES OF AREA
MOUNTAINS. THURSDAY WE WILL SEE COOLER TEMPERATURE AND THUS HIGHER
RH`S...BUT THEN WE WILL START TO WARM BACK UP SO THAT BY THE
WEEKEND WE WILL SEE HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND 5 TO 8 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. FOR THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK WE WILL SEE AN UPPER LEVEL
STORM SYSTEM MOVE ACROSS THE REGION BUT SHOULD REMAIN DRY. THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WILL SEE A RETURN TO SUNNY WARM WEATHER. MIN
RH`S WILL BE IN THE TEENS TODAY AND THEN A LITTLE HIGHER ON
THURSDAY.
