.DISCUSSION...

RELATIVELY QUIET WEATHER IS EXPECTED TODAY THANKS TO A HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGE OVER THE REGION. THE CLOUD COVER THIS MORNING SHOULD DISSIPATE
BEGIN TO BREAK UP BY EARLY THIS AFTERNOON, SO SUNNY SKIES ARE STILL
LIKELY TO DEVELOP TODAY. IN THE REMOTE CHANCE THE CLOUD COVER HANGS
ON, THE TEMPERATURES COULD BE LOWER AND RH A BIT HIGHER. OTHERWISE,
THE VERY LIGHT AND SOMEWHAT VARIABLE WINDS SHOULD BECOME ABOUT 5 MPH
OUT OF THE NNW. THE MINIMUM RH SHOULD BE ABOUT 30 TO 35 PERCENT.
EVEN THOUGH THE WIND IS OUT OF THE NNW, IT APPEARS THE WIND IS LIGHT
ENOUGH AND THE LOCATION FAR ENOUGH INLAND FROM LEECH LAKE THAT THE
LAKE SHOULD NOT HAVE MUCH OF AN IMPACT ON THE BURN. HOWEVER...IT IS
POSSIBLE THE RELATIVELY COLD LAKE COULD KEEP THE TEMPERATURE DOWN
AND RH HIGHER BY A BIT. SMOKE DISPERSION SHOULD BE GOOD BY THE
PROPOSED 11 AM BURN TIME.

FEEL FREE TO GIVE US A CALL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.
WE ARE HAPPY TO HELP!
