.DISCUSSION...Strong high pressure aloft positioned to the west of
Utah this evening will shift east into Utah Sunday. This high
pressure will bring warmer temperatures and continue low humidity to
the fire site Sunday. Winds will remain largely terrain-driven
tonight through Sunday night. Continued hot temperatures and low
humidity will persist into Monday. Cloud cover will increase during
the afternoon. Winds will increase from the southwest during the
afternoon and evening ahead of a weak weather disturbance arriving
early Tuesday.

Winds this evening have turned to an enhanced down canyon easterly
direction. The stronger gusts should end around midnight, with
lighter down canyon winds persisting overnight and into Sunday
morning. These east winds could draw some of the smoke back into
the valley late tonight, with this smoke concentrating around the
base of the canyon.
