.Discussion...

Cooler temperatures will be over the plains today as
compared to yesterday, with readings mainly in the 50s
across the lower elevations. Winds to day will be relatively
light across the entire district.

Tomorrow, near critical fire weather conditions are
anticipated across all of the district as a pacific
storm system moves towards the region. Surface southwest
winds will be on the increase and humidity values will
reach into the 15 to 20 percent range.

Snow will move  into the central mountains Thursday night
and it will become very windy across most, if not all, of
the higher terrain. Snow showers will be likely across most
of the rest of the higher terrain Thursday night into Friday.

A pacific cold front will cross the district on Friday, and
it will be quite windy across the district.

Much colder weather will move into the district for Friday
night and Saturday. Temperatures will start to warm up once
again Sunday into early next week.

Smoke dispersion will be good or better across the mountains
and valleys today, and generally fair across the plains.

Smoke dispersion will be very good or better tomorrow across
all of the district tomorrow afternoon.
