.DISCUSSION...WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT TODAY AND WEDNESDAY...EXCEPT
NEAR SHOWERS OR STORMS WHICH COULD PRODUCE SOME BRIEF GUST WINDS.
A BRIEF SHOWER OR STORM WILL BE MOST LIKELY BETWEEN 1700 AND 2000 THIS
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. THE CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION IS ABOUT 20
PERCENT. THE PROBABILITY WILL INCREASE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AS SHOWERS
BECOME A BIT MORE WIDESPREAD AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE MORE LIKELY AND POTENTIALLY STRONGER ON
WEDNESDAY WITH THE THREAT OF LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS. THURSDAY WILL LIKELY
BE DRY AS SOUTHWEST WINDS PICK UP IN ADVANCE OF THE STORM SYSTEM. THIS
SYSTEM WILL BRING A CHANCE OF WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA
LATE THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING...AS WINDS SHIFT TO THE NORTH
BEHIND A COLD FRONT.
