.DISCUSSION...
RECOVERIES FRIDAY MORNING WILL NOT BE VERY GOOD, BUT WE AREN`T EXPECTING
AS MUCH WIND ON THE MID SLOPE/RIDGE AS PREVIOUS EARLY MORNINGS. IT WILL
REMAIN VERY DRY FRIDAY AFTERNOON WITH A MODERATE HAINES INDEX OF 5
EXPECTED OVER THE INCIDENT. WARM, DRY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE INTO THE
WEEKEND, BUT A GRADUAL COOLING/LESS DRY TREND WILL BEGIN NEXT WEEK.
LONG RANGE GUIDANCE IS INDICATING A TURN TOWARD EVEN COOLER, MORE
MOIST WEATHER BY LATE NEXT WEEK ALONG WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS, BUT IT`S
STILL A BIT TOO EARLY TO HAVE MUCH CONFIDENCE IN THAT.
