Service.

.DISCUSSION...The main concern for Saturday will be the increasing
westerly winds that should begin fairly soon after sunrise. The
good news is that the fire should remain out of the strongest
winds which will plague locations further to your east in Montana.
Another concern will be the easterly gradient that develops later
on Saturday into Sunday, but again...do not expect east winds to
make it over to the Blue Fire. RH recoveries should remain near to
values experienced in recent nights.

.SATURDAY...

* Sky/Weather.........Mostly sunny. A few cumulus build-ups
  possible after 1300 over highest terrain.
