.DISCUSSION...

AN ISOLATED SHOWER AROUND SUNRISE COULD RESULT IN WIND GUSTS
ABOVE 20 MPH DURING THE EARLY MORNING. ANY STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
DISSIPATE BY 8 AM.

AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT WILL RESULT IN A SLOW DECREASE IN WINDS
THROUGH THE MORNING AND A GRADUAL SHIFT FROM SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST.
DEW POINTS WILL ALSO BE INCREASING AHEAD OF THE FRONT KEEPING THE
RELATIVE HUMIDITY ABOVE 50 PERCENT MOST OF THE MORNING. THE COLD
FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE AREA AROUND NOON WITH WINDS
SHIFTING FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST...AND GRADUALLY TO NORTH BY
LATE AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL ALSO INCREASE WITH GUSTS OVER 20 MPH
EXPECTED AFTER 2 PM. WITH THE FRONTAL PASSAGE...THE RELATIVE
HUMIDITY WILL FALL BELOW 40 PERCENT AS TEMPERATURES APPROACH 80
DEGREES. THERE WILL ALSO BE A CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH
MUCH OF THE AFTERNOON. ANY STORMS THAT DEVELOP COULD RESULT IN
VARIABLE WIND DIRECTIONS AND GUSTS OVER 30 MPH FOR A BRIEF PERIOD.
