Weather Synopsis

Weather Concerns
A ridge of high pressure will hold firm across the region today before breaking down and shifting east Wednesday. As a result, unseasonably warm and dry conditions will persist through Wednesday, turning more moist, cooler, breezy, and showery Thursday. Winds may approach critical thresholds Wednesday afternoon but will be offset by a slight uptick in relative humidity values, potentially precluding Red Flag conditions.
