DISCUSSION..THE MORNING STARTED OFF A BIT SHOWERY FOR SOME OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS AS THE TRADE WINDS BROUGHT ACROSS SOME SHALLOW PATCHES OVER THE AREA. AS THE MORNING PROGRESSED AND THE ATMOSPHERE BEGAN TO HEAT UP, MOST OF THESE PATCHES DWINDLED AWAY. GENERALLY PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES HAVE BEEN OBSERVED SO FAR FOR THE PERIOD.

THE ENTIRE ATMOSPHERIC COLUMN OVER US CONTINES TO SHOW SIGNS OF PREDOMINANTLY DRY AND STABLE CONDITIONS WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS A HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES. THESE CONDITIONS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT WITH THE LATEST ISSUED FORECAST.
