...REMARKS...
Concerned about low RH recovery due to thermal belt. Also concerned
about any downcanyon winds that may develop. Fire relatively quiet
except after 10pm last night - isolated  candling/torching due to RH
drop in thermal belt. Thanks for your help. Will check to see if we
can real obs from Helispot directly across the canyon from fire to
see if that changes forecast any for this fire.
