A WARM DAY LIES AHEAD AS SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE AHEAD OF A  
DEEPENING SURFACE LOW OVER THE PLAINS. THIS WILL AID IN MOISTURE  
RETURN FROM THE GULF TODAY WITH MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES  
ONLY FALLING TO AROUND 45-50 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON. WIND SPEEDS  
WILL RANGE FROM 10-15 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS FROM LATE THIS MORNING  
THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING AS THE SURFACE LOW AND COLD FRONT  
OVER THE PLAINS BEGIN TO SHIFT SOUTHEAST TOWARD OUR REGION. THIS

HIGHER AMOUNTS. COOLER AND DRIER CONDITIONS WILL FOLLOW ON THURSDAY  
IN THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT. FOG DOES NOT APPEAR LIKELY OVER THE  
NEXT FEW DAYS AS WINDS REMAIN QUITE STRONG.
