A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN OVER THE BURN
AREA THROUGH MONDAY. THIS WILL LEAD TO A WARMING AND DRYING TREND
WITH GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS. INVERSIONS AND THERMAL BELTS WILL
STRENGTHEN TONIGHT ALLOWING FOR POOR RH RECOVERIES ON THE MID SLOPES
AND RIDGES. THERE IS A LIGHT EAST-NORTHEAST FLOW OVER THE AREA TODAY,
HOWEVER THE BURN LOCATION LOOKS SHELTERED ENOUGH FROM THIS DIRECTION,
LEADING TOWARDS A MORE VARIABLE WIND DIRECTION.
