.DISCUSSION...
An upper level low will reside over the forecast burn site today.
The proximity of the low will keep some clouds and even a small
chance of a flurry in the forecast early this morning. The threat
of any flurries will wane by mid-morning. Otherwise expect to see
sunny skies through most of the day and a relatively cool north
breeze. For Friday a weak weather system will move over the area
resulting in a wind shift to the south as well as increasing
cloud cover. The chance for any measurable precipitation is
small.
