.FIRE WEATHER...

Westerly winds will diminish this evening, with speeds dropping
below 20 mph sustained in most locations by 22/01Z or 22/02Z. Very
dry air over the region will only allow for RHs to rise slowly,
despite cooling temperatures. Since critical conditions will
improve over the next hour or two, will allow the Red Flag Warning
to expire at 22/01Z. Recovery tonight will be poor in most areas,
and RHs will drop to 10-15% most locations Monday afternoon.
Since 20 foot wind speeds will rise to 10-15 mph, critical fire
weather conditions are not expected.
