DISCUSSION
 
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT DUE TO A WEATHER SYSTEM OVER  
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL BRING INCREASING DOWNSLOPE WINDS THROUGH  
THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL DROP INTO  
THE UPPER TEENS BETWEEN NOON TO 6 PM MDT WITH STRONGEST WINDS  
ACCOMPANYING THIS TIME FRAME. RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL EXPERIENCE  
MODEST RECOVERY AS SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS PERSIST THROUGH MIDNIGHT AND  
BECOME UPSLOPE/UPVALLEY OVERNIGHT. APPROACHING WEATHER SYSTEM WILL  
RESULT IN SLIGHTLY LOWER HIGH TEMPERATURES, BUT ALSO HIGHER MIN RH  
VALUES. WINDS WILL BE BE SIMILAR TO TODAY AS CROSS MOUNTAIN FLOW WILL  
HELP GENERATE DOWNSLOPING WINDS.
