.DISCUSSION...
DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED TODAY. IT WON`T BE AS WARM AND HUMIDITY WILL
BE A TOUCH HIGHER THAN YESTERDAY. A DRY COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH
THE LATER IN THE DAY/EVENING AND THIS WILL PRODUCE SLIGHTLY HIGHER
AFTERNOON WINDS. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE WILL PRESS SOUTHWARD
INTO THE AREA TUESDAY THEN INTO CALIFORNIA MID-LATE WEEK. THIS
WILL BRING A SIGNIFICANT COOLING TREND ALONG WITH INCREASING CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. RIGHT NOW, IT LOOKS LIKE THE BEST CHANCE
FOR WETTING PRECIPITATION WILL BE THURSDAY BUT CONFIDENCE IS ON THE LOW
SIDE.
