.DISCUSSION...
Winds will pick up today ahead of a cold front that will move
through tomorrow. These southwest winds will pick up around noon
and gust up to 30 MPH at times. The winds will also allow for
excellent smoke dispersal today and again tomorrow. For Tuesday,
similar conditions are expected as the cold front pushes through.
Some showers are possible over the burn site with an isolated
storm not out of the question though do expect most convection to
stay north. Gusty winds will occur again though they will be out
of the northwest.
