.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE BURN AREA THROUGH THE WEEKEND
BRINGING DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. A NORTHEASTERLY
PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL ENHANCE DAYTIME UPSLOPE WINDS TODAY THEN THE
GRADIENT WILL SLACKEN AND RESULT IN LIGHT TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS THROUGH
MONDAY. THE RIDGE LOOKS TO START BREAKING DOWN AS EARLY AS MONDAY NIGHT
WHICH WOULD ALLOW FOR INCREASED WINDS AND A POSSIBILITY OF
SHOWERS MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
