655 AM MDT SAT MAY 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
EXPECT NEAR-NORMAL TEMPERATURES TODAY, WARMING UP TO A COUPLE
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL TOMORROW AS AN UPPER LOW CARVES OUT OVER
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, BRINGING SW FLOW ALOFT TO OUR AREA. THIS
SYSTEM WILL BRING BREEZY SW WINDS SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY, BUT
WINDS WILL REMAIN BELOW CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. MEANWHILE, RH VALUES
WILL DROP INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS ACROSS THE REGION, EVEN IN THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS. A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT AND LIMITED MOISTURE MAY
BRING SOME THUNDERSTORMS TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS WEDNESDAY, WITH
COOLER TEMPERATURES AREA-WIDE ON THURSDAY.
