.DISCUSSION...

Light winds over the area today will lead to poor smoke dispersions
even during the afternoon with increasing high cloudiness expected.
Sunday will be cooler but will remain dry.  Stronger winds aloft will
lead to better afternoon smoke dispersion rates.

A dry and warming trend will set in through early next week.
The next chance for snow will come on Thursday as another storm system
moves into the area.  Confidence in the storm track is still too low
at this point to estimate how much snow will fall, but for now there
is the possibility for some light accumulations. Temperatures will
remain significantly colder into next weekend.
