.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will be over the north Cascades today and Tuesday.
This will result in warm and dry conditions with temperatures on
the warm side of normal. Strong morning inversions will result in
poor afternoon mixing and with a short ventilation window. There is
likely 3-6 inches of snow at the burn site this morning. A fast
moving weather system on Wednesday will bring a shot of showers
and breezy winds to the burn area. Then a return to warm and dry
weather Thursday and Friday.
