.DISCUSSION...

...Dry weather through the weekend to give way to widespread
rainfall early next week... 

A large area of high pressure will remain over the eastern part
of the country this week before slowly sliding off the coast on
Saturday. This will keep skies mostly sunny and allow
temperatures to warm to above normal levels. Early next week, a
strong cold front and deep upper trough will approach from the
Midwest bringing widespread rain showers followed by much cooler 
temperatures.

Minimum relative humidity values will be near 30 percent through
the end of the week before moisture starts to increase over the 
weekend. Light transport winds and a relatively shallow mixing height
will create poor dispersion and ventilation conditions into the 
weekend.
