.DISCUSSION...Warm and dry conditions with breezy afternoon winds
are expected on the fire today. Fortunately the presence of a partly
cloudy sky will keep the temperatures and minimum humidity somewhat
in check, compared to yesterday. Expect clear conditions to help
produce good overnight humidity recovery and a fairly deep surface
inversion. Cooler temperatures with slightly higher humidity are
expected tomorrow. Expect winds to be more terrain driven and diurnal
in nature.
