WITH LIMITED VENTILATION THROUGH MIDWEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM  
THROUGH THE WEEK WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT TO MIXING THE END OF THE WEEK  
INTO THE WEEKEND. NO MAJOR STORMS WITH SEASON ENDING PRECIPITATION ARE  
ANTICIPATED AT LEAST THROUGH THIS WEEK, HOWEVER A PATTERN CHANGE TO  
MORE UNSETTLED CONDITIONS IS LOOKING POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK.
