.DISCUSSION...
High pressure remains in control today as relatively dry air
remains in place. Winds will become southwest at 6 to 10 MPH but
poor mixing will keep smoke dispersal in the fair category this
afternoon. Similar conditions expected tomorrow but as the high
pressure moves a little bit easter, more mixing is expected. This
better mixing will allow very good smoke dispersal in the
afternoon. Winds will remain light Saturday and be from the
southwest.
