Forecast is based on request time of 1500 PDT on August 17.

Service.

.DISCUSSION...A thermal trough will remain west of the burn area
for the next few days. This means we`ll see a continuation of
gusty east to northeast winds and moderate to possibly poor
recoveries at night, the mid slopes and ridges will be at highest
risk for having these conditions. Rapid drying combined with gusty
winds could enhance the risk of fire spread on existing fires and
also perhaps cause "sleeper" fires to awaken. Meanwhile
temperatures during the day will end up warmer this afternoon with
further warming Thursday and Friday. Slight cooling is expected
Saturday and Sunday, but temperatures will still be above normal.
