...Hot with low humidity today...

...A cold frontal passage early tomorrow...

.DISCUSSION...
Expect hot and dry conditions at the fire site today. The high
will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, which will drop the
already low relative humidity down into the upper teens to lower
20s. This afternoon expect mixed winds to develop with gusts to
around 20 mph out of the southeast. Winds will remain breezy
overnight at the fire site ahead of a cold front. The front will
move through the fire site early tomorrow morning around sunrise.
Expect winds to shift to the west to northwest as the front moves
through. Tomorrow expect isolated thunderstorms to develop around
the fire site, some of which could produce outflow winds that will
impact the fire even if they do not produce any rain over the
fire. Reimer
