1021 PM MDT Tue Aug 23 2016

Forecast is based on request time of 2208 MDT on August 23.

.DISCUSSION...A weather system sagging south over the fire will
cause a chance for rain to occur through 1000. Afterwards, a slight
amount of instability could cause an isolated thunderstorm or two
to form over ridgetops through the afternoon hours. In addition,
an easterly gradient will develop, bringing easterly winds to the
fire. On one hand, these east winds could squash any chance for
thunderstorm development, but given the instability present, will
keep a mentioning of storms in the forecast.
