.DISCUSSION...
 
High pressure across the Gulf Coast states slides to the southeast
coast through the weekend. This will bring warming temperatures
and cause snow cover to melt. The snow has wet the fine fuels, so
no wildfire concerns expected in the near term. A front moving in
Monday night and Tuesday will bring a good chance of rain.
