.DISCUSSION...

THE FIRE WILL BE UNDER A SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT BETWEEN HIGH
PRESSURE TO THE EAST AND A TROUGH NEAR THE PACIFIC COAST. BRIEF
SPRINKLES WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE MORNING...OTHERWISE DRY UNTIL
POSSIBLY SATURDAY. STRONGER SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS WILL MIX DOWN THIS
AFTERNOON AND AGAIN ON FRIDAY. THIS WILL CREATE BETTER SMOKE
DISPERSION AND RESULT IN HIGHER WIND GUSTS UP TO AROUND 22-28 MPH.
A STRONG COLD FRONT PASSAGE WILL TAKE PLACE EARLY SATURDAY
AFTERNOON. STRONG PRE-FRONTAL WINDS FROM THE SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST
WILL INCREASE SATURDAY MORNING FOLLOWED BY A SHARP WIND SHIFT
OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST AND STRONG GUSTY WINDS FOR THE AFTERNOON. A
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL ACCOMPANY THE COLD FRONT
BUT WETTING RAINS LOOK UNLIKELY.
