.DISCUSSION...A strong upper level ridge of high pressure over
Southern California will continue to bring hot and dry conditions
to the burn area today. The upper ridge will weaken slightly on
Thursday allowing for stronger onshore across the region. This
will translate into slightly stronger onshore winds on Thursday
across the burn area during the afternoon and early evening
hours. The hot and unstable conditions during the afternoon
hours will continue to lead to very deep mixing heights.
