.DISCUSSION...

AN AREA OF MOISTURE DRIFTING ACROSS CENTRAL NY MAY PRODUCE A FEW
ISOLATED SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON. OTHERWISE THE REST OF THE AREA WILL
SEE ANOTHER DRY AND WARM SPRING DAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO BUILD
INTO THE GREAT LAKES. THIS HIGH WILL KEEP DRY WEATHER AND WARM
TEMPERATURES IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

AFTERNOON MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL DROP TO AROUND 35 PERCENT TODAY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AWAY FROM THE IMMEDIATE LAKESHORES. FINE FUELS
WILL REMAIN DRY WITH NO SIGNIFICANT RAIN RECENTLY...HOWEVER WINDS
WILL STAY RELATIVELY LIGHT THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

THE NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN WILL ARRIVE MONDAY AND TUESDAY AS A COLD
FRONT SLOWLY CROSSES THE AREA.
