cover this morning as it moves overhead. Isolated showers should
provide a low chance of wetting rain through the afternoon and
evening. Winds will increase from the west southwest through the
afternoon. This will help raise smoke dispersal into the very
good and above categories near peak heating. Winds will continue
to increase Friday ahead of a stronger upper level storm system
this weekend.
