DISCUSSION
 
A FEW PASSING SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS ARE  
POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE AREA THIS MORNING. HOWEVER,  
A COLD FRONT WILL SPARK MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND STORMS  
LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. HIGHS FOR TODAY WILL BE IN  
THE LOW TO MID 80S. NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND LOW HUMIDITY  
LEVELS WILL FOLLOW ON MONDAY, BUT INCREASING HEAT AND HUMIDITY  
RETURN FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE UPCOMING WORK WEEK. TODAYS RAIN  
WILL GIVE EVERYTHING A GOOD SOAKING, SO FIRE DANGER TODAY  
WILL NEAR ZERO. CONDITIONS WILL DRY OUT A BIT ON MONDAY, BUT  
WITH RELATIVELY HIGH MINIMUM HUMIDITY VALUES AND LIGHT WINDS  
ON TAP, WE SHOULD SEE MINIMAL FIRE DANGER AGAIN TO START OFF  
THE WEEK.
