.DISCUSSION...
Westerly winds will prevail at the fire site through 10 Pm while
continuing to decrease in speed. Between 10 PM and Midnight
a cold front will push through the fire site and cause
winds to switch out of the north at 10 to 20 MPH. We could see
a brief window behind the front for gusts up to 30 MPH, but the
risk from these gusts will drop greatly after 3 AM. Relative humidities
will continue to improve at the fire site reaching 50 percent around
the midnight hour. Winds will remain light and out of the north at
the fire site through the remainder of the forecast period.
