.DISCUSSION...
WEAK RIDING CONTINUES TO BUILD IN BUT INSTEAD OF CLEAR SKIES,
DAYTIME HEATING AND AVAILABLE MOISTURE HAS ALLOWED SOME SHOWERS TO
FORM NEAR THE BURN SITE. IT`S POSSIBLE THAT ONE OF THESE SHOWERS
MAY DRIFT OVER THE BURN SITE BUT IF IT DOES, ANY RAIN THAT FALLS
SHOULD BE OVER QUICKLY. SIMILAR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN
TOMORROW WITH COVERAGE A LITTLE BIT GREATER THAN SEEN TODAY. CAN`T
RULE OUT A SHOWER OR ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM IN THE AFTERNOON BUT
THEY SHOULD BE FAIRLY WEAK. WINDS WILL BE LIGHT AND GENERALLY
TERRAIN DRIVEN WITH A FEW GUSTS REACHING 12 TO 15 MPH AT TIMES TODAY
AND TOMORROW.
