.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL KEEP OUR WEATHER DRY INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING.
AFTER THAT...THE FORECAST IS A LITTLE MORE CHALLENGING BUT OVERALL
THE WEDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE COMBINED WITH A COASTAL FRONT AND LOW
PRESSURE WILL PUSH CLOUDS AND POTENTIAL FOR RAIN BACK INTO OUR
REGION WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY MORNING. THE BETTER
CHANCE FOR RAIN WILL BE ACROSS THE PIEDMONT. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
IN THURSDAY NIGHT AND WILL KEEP THE ARE DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
