DISCUSSION
 
 
AFTER A QUICK PUSH OF DRIER AIR INTO THE REGION, A BACK DOOR FRONT  
MOVED THROUGH THE AREA OVERNIGHT AND THIS MORNING TO BRING SOME LOW  
LEVEL MOISTURE BACK. AN UPPER HIGH WILL BE RIGHT OVER THE AREA  
WHICH WILL HELP TO SUPPRESS THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT HOWEVER EXCEPT  
TO MAINLY MOUNTAIN AREAS FOR NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. AS THIS UPPER  
HIGH MOVES EASTWARD FOR THE LATER PART OF THE WEEK AND INTO THE  
WEEKEND, A TYPICAL MONSOON PATTERN WILL DEVELOP WITH INCREASING  
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES, ESPECIALLY WEST OF THE DIVIDE FOR LATE IN THE  
WEEK AND SPREADING FURTHER EAST SLOWLY INTO THE WEEKEND. RELATIVE  
HUMIDITIES WILL BE REMAINING ABOVE 20 PERCENT FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK  
WITH TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL.
