.DISCUSSION...
Humidity will drop down to around 20 percent by late afternoon.
Southerly wind under 10 mph is expected to prevail into the
evening. We do not expect to see any shower or thunderstorm
development affect the fire site the rest of today. For the
overnight hours, southerly winds are expected to increase at
ridgetop levels out of the south/southwest. RH recoveries may not
be as good as last night thanks to increased wind and lingering
clouds. We could see an isolated sprinkle this evening or
overnight, but the chance of rain is much better for Thursday. A
few storms could produce hail and locally heavy rain by Thursday
afternoon. BT
