 .DISCUSSION...
 A relatively dry airmass in place today will yield mainly clear 
 skies. A weak cold front approaches our northern counties this 
 evening which could yield an isolated shower or thunderstorm. 
 Humidity increases Thursday with increasing chances for some strong 
 to severe afternoon thunderstorms ahead of an approaching cold front.
 
 High pressure builds Friday into Saturday behind the cold front 
 lowering chances for showers and storms, although they will start to 
 increase once again starting on Sunday.
