.DISCUSSION...

Warmer and drier conditions will prevail today with less wind
compared to yesterday. While low clouds and/or patchy fog will
affect the prescribed burn site early this morning, conditions
will improve mid morning. A ridge of high pressure overhead
extending from the Upper Mississippi Valley will shift east to
eastern Nebraska causing winds to shift and become southerly.
Winds will increase today and stay light (generally under 10
mph). Afternoon relative humidity will drop between 30 and 35
percent today.

Looking ahead, slightly cooler conditions and higher afternoon
humidity will prevail tomorrow.
