.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 332 PM CDT Thu Oct 11 2018/ 

High temperatures so far today (as of 3 PM) are ranging from the 
upper 70s to the lower 80s with high pressure in control. Dew 
points in the mid 50s to lower 60s are helping to keep humidity 
levels on the low side with most spots around 45%. North to 
northeast winds in place today will become east to southeast 
tomorrow as the high moves off to the east resulting in warming 
temperatures and increasing humidities as we close out the week 
and head on into the weekend. While the rains associated with the 
remnants of Tropical Storm Sergio (currently off the Baja 
California peninsula) are expected to remain to the west of our 
area, we could have enough moisture in place for some activity to 
develop on Saturday. Increasing chances will come beginning on 
Sunday (mainly up north) and on into Sunday night and Monday (area
wide) with the approach and slow passage of a strong cold front. 
Lots of clouds, much cooler temperatures, breezy north to 
northeast winds (especially near and off the coast) and periods of
rain can be expected behind the front for probably the first half
of next week and maybe for the entire week as the flow aloft 
remains out of the southwest. 42
