.DISCUSSION...
SOME AFTERNOON CUMULUS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE HIGH SIERRA WITH
ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW SHOULD KEEP ANY STORMS ALONG THE SIERRA CREST,
BUT THERE IS A VERY SLIGHT CHANCE OF A STORM DEVELOPING NEAR THE
FIRE AREA FOR THE POTENTIAL OF LIGHTNING AND GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS.
TEMPERATURES WILL TREND A LITTLE LOWER THIS WEEKEND WITH LITTLE
CHANGE IN RELATIVE HUMIDITY. TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS WILL PREVAIL.
