SPOT FORECAST FOR NORTH ZONE PILE BURN  LOGAN PEAK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY UT
554 PM MDT TUE SEP 2 2014

.DISCUSSION...DRY AND WARM CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN OVER UTAH FOR
TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY...UNTIL A WEAK COLD FRONT MOVES INTO
NORTHERN UTAH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

THE MOST UNCERTAIN PART OF THE FORECAST IS THE WIND SPEED AND
DIRECTION FOR WEDNESDAY. WINDS ABOVE THE SURFACE WOULD GENERALLY
SUPPORT A WESTERLY DIRECTION...BUT THE VERY LIGHT WINDS AT THE
BURN SITE ON TUESDAY SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THE PILES ARE WELL
PROTECTED FROM THESE WESTERLY WINDS. INSTEAD...WEDNESDAYS COLD
FRONT COULD SUPPORT INCREASED NORTHERLY WINDS...AMPLIFYING THE
DAYTIME NORTHEASTERLY UPSLOPE AT THE BURN SITE.

THURSDAY ALSO LOOKS TO SUPPORT SOMEWHAT ENHANCED NORTHERLY WINDS
AT THE SITE. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE A BIT ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH FOR
LATE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE END OF THE WEEK.
