.DISCUSSION...

WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS MORNING FROM THE NORTHWEST AHEAD OF A COLD
FRONT AND REMAIN BREEZY THROUGH THE DAY.  WHILE GUSTS TO 25 TO 30 MPH
WILL BE POSSIBLE ON RIDGE TOPS...THE PARTIALLY SHELTERED LOCATION OF THE
BURN SHOULD KEEP GUSTS SLIGHTLY LOWER.  THIS WILL LEAD TO VERY GOOD
AFTERNOON DISPERSIONS.  SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE BURN SITE LATE
THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH MIDNIGHT AS A COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH.  THIS
SHOULD SHIFT WINDS OUT OF THE NORTHEAST AT AROUND 5-10 MPH DURING THE
EVENING.  COULD SEE AN INCH OR TWO OF ACCUMULATION BEFORE SNOW DECREASES
EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING.  IT WILL REMAIN COLD FOR WEDNESDAY WITH
LIGHTER WINDS...ALTHOUGH AFTERNOON DISPERSIONS WILL STILL BE GOOD.

LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED.
