.DISCUSSION...
Light ESE winds will continue this evening before becoming more
southerly overnight. There is a slight chance for an isolated
shower or storm to develop yet this afternoon or early evening
near the fire, but this potential is fairly low and a dry,
tranquil evening is the most likely scenario. Humidity recovery
overnight will be favorable with RHs increasing to near 75% by
dawn. Tuesday will be warmer with high temperatures climbing to
near 100 and RHs falling to around 30% in the afternoon. There is
only a small chance for a shower on Tuesday, and it`s unlikely
rainfall will occur near the fire location.
