.DISCUSSION...
WESTERLY UPSLOPE WINDS WILL BE BREEZY THIS AFTERNOON AS STORMS ARE
DEVELOPING JUST EAST OF THE BURN SITE. OUTFLOW FROM THOSE STORMS
COULD QUICKLY CHANGE THE DIRECTION TO EASTERLY/DOWNSLOPE. COULD ALSO
SEE THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP RIGHT OVER THE SITE PRODUCING A HEAVY
WETTING RAIN AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING. OTHERWISE...SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND STORMS WILL DISSIPATE TONIGHT WITH ANOTHER ROUND POSSIBLE
TOMORROW. EXPECT TYPICAL UPSLOPE AND DOWN VALLEY WINDS OUTSIDE OF
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.
