.DISCUSSION...WIND SPEEDS AND TIMING WILL BE A TOUGH CALL AT THIS
LOCATION TUESDAY.  THERE IS NO DOUBT WEST WINDS WILL BE ON THE
INCREASE THROUGH THE DAY TUESDAY, AND GIVEN THE PARALLEL NATURE OF
KINTLA TO THIS FLOW, IT IS THOUGHT WINDS ALOFT WILL BE ABLE TO MIX
DOWN. YOU WILL LIKELY HAVE A LIGHTER-WIND WINDOW THROUGH LATE MORNING,
BUT WINDS MAY BE ABOVE YOUR THRESHOLD THEREAFTER. AND THEY`LL LIKELY
CONTINUE WELL INTO THE EVENING, AND DEVELOP AGAIN BY MIDDAY WEDNESDAY.

FEEL FREE TO CALL AGAIN EARLY TUESDAY MORNING TO CHECK FOR ANY UPDATES.
