.DISCUSSION...

NO MAJOR WEATHER SYSTEMS WILL AFFECT OUR REGION FOR THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS AS HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC COAST REMAINS
IN CONTROL OF OUR WEATHER. THIS WILL BRING A WARMING TREND WITH
INCREASING HEAT AND HUMIDITY THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAY  WEEKEND...
WITH JUST A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR A LATE DAY SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM 
OVER THE MOUNTAINS BY MONDAY OR TUESDAY. AS THE HIGH MOVES FURTHER
TO THE EAST...CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION WILL BE ON THE INCREASE 
TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. DAYTIME MIXING AND DISPERSION
WILL GENERALLY BE GOOD INTO THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.
