will shift to the west and southwest overnight. The southwest
winds will continue into tomorrow, picking up again into the 15 to

moving in with the southwest winds will allow afternoon relative
humidity values to drop into the 25 to 35 percent range on Sunday.
Mixing heights will increase into the 6000-7000 ft range and
smoke dispersal will be good.

Cooler conditions for the upcoming week with breezy winds from the
