.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure allow for continued dry and
warm airmass to remain over the region through the weekend.   A
moderate northwesterly flow this afternoon will weaken tonight into
Sunday.  The combination of wind, low rh and warm temperatures will
allow for high fire danger through this afternoon.  The fire danger
will remain elevated on Sunday but the wind will not be as strong as
today so no highlights are planned for tomorrow.  Temperatures
however will remain mild with rh values teens in the afternoon.
