.DISCUSSION...Tonight will feature northeast general winds that will
enhance the terrain driven downslope easterly winds some. Humidity
recoveries tonight should be in the moderate range. The thermal trough
pattern weakens some tomorrow, so the general winds will decrease some
too. This means terrain driven upslope winds, with some influence from
northerly general winds, are most likely Thursday afternoon at the burn
site. Friday`s conditions should be similar to Thursday.
