.DISCUSSION...
Expect winds overnight to remain breezy at the fire site. A low
level jet will keep the ridge-top winds 10 to 20 mph, and will
keep relative humidity recoveries between 50 to 55 percent.
Tomorrow a cold front will move across the fire site late in the
afternoon. This will shift winds from west to the northwest,
becoming gusty up to 25 mph. Relative humidity values will also
drop into the teens. Along the front, there could be isolated
thunderstorms. Winds will remain gusty through the evening before
becoming light after midnight. Friday will be less windy, but
still hot and dry. Reimer
