247 AM EDT FRI APR 23 2021  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
WEST WINDS WILL BE STRONG AGAIN TODAY, ALTHOUGH JUST A BIT WEAKER  
THAN YESTERDAY. WARMER TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON WILL ALLOW  
RELATIVE HUMIDITY TO FALL BELOW 30 PERCENT FOR MANY AREAS TODAY.  
IT WILL BE DRY AGAIN ON SATURDAY WITH EVEN WARMER TEMPERATURES,  
BUT THE WIND SHOULD BE EVEN LIGHTER AS WELL. THE NEXT CHANCE OF  
WETTING RAIN IS ON SUNDAY.
