.DISCUSSION...

No major fire weather concerns through the next five days with 
several chances for wetting rainfall. 

Warm frontal rain this morning exits by midday. High pressure across
the southeast coast will give us much above normal temperatures
through most of the week, with the next best threat of rain coming
late Wednesday into Thursday with a cold front. However, humidity
levels will stay somewhat elevated for February through the week.
