...No Fire Weather Concerns Through the Weekend...

.DISCUSSION...
Quiet weather returns to the North Country as high pressure
builds in. Temperatures remain below normal over the weekend 
but a warming trend will lead to near to slightly above normal 
temperatures mid week. Expect plentiful sunshine through the
middle of the workweek before rain returns to the region
Wednesday.

Relative Humidities will drop to the 36-40% range Saturday and
Sunday with excellent recovery overnight.  Monday will be the 
driest day with minimum relative humidities in the 21-26% range.
However by the time fuels dry out rain should move back into 
the North Country on Wednesday.
