.DISCUSSION...

BROAD NORTHWEST FLOW WILL RESULT IN WINDS PICKING UP ON THE FIRE
EACH AFTERNOON AND EVENING THROUGH MONDAY. A SLIGHT WARMING AND
DRYING TREND TO NEAR SEASONAL NORMALS IS EXPECTED THROUGH MONDAY AS
WELL. THE NEXT COLD FRONT PASSAGE WILL PUSH THROUGH TUESDAY
AFTERNOON WITH STRONGER AND GUSTY WESTERLY WINDS OVER THE FIRE.
A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE FRONT...BUT
WETTING RAINS ARE UNLIKELY. A BRIEF COOL DOWN WILL TAKE PLACE WITH
FRONTAL PASSAGE...BUT A REBOUND TO ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES IS
ANTICIPATED FOR LATE IN THE WEEK.
