418 AM EDT THU AUG 25 2016

...INCREASING THREAT OF PRECIPITATION TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL BE OVER THE AREA TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY
MORNING. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR DEEPER MOISTURE TO MOVE INTO THE
REGION AND WITH A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE ALSO MOVING IN...THE
THREAT FOR SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL EXIST TODAY
THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS DURING THIS PERIOD
WILL GENERALLY BE LESS THAN A THIRD OF AN INCH. THE INCREASING
MOISTURE INDICATES NO RELATIVE HUMIDITY ISSUES WILL EXISTS...BUT
THERE WILL BE WIND GUSTS FROM THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST TODAY IN THE
15 TO 25 MILE PER HOUR RANGE. HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO MOVE IN
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND WILL PERSIST OVER THE REGION THROUGH SUNDAY
MORNING. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A DRYING TREND TO TAKE PLACE DURING
THIS TIME PERIOD AND WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES RIGHT AROUND SEASONAL
NORMALS THIS WEEKEND...HUMIDITY LEVEL SHOULD NOT REACH CRITICAL
LEVELS. ANOTHER FRONT MOVES INTO THE REGION LATE SUNDAY AND BRINGS
THE NEXT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS TO THE AREA.
