.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will be building over the
area the next couple of days causing a warming and drying trend
after yesterday`s cold front. Cumulus clouds are anticipated to
develop this afternoon, but no precipitation is anticipated. The
ridge will experience some gusty westerly wind this afternoon, but
considerably lower compared to yesterday. The winds will be even
lighter on Sunday. The fire appears to be above the thermal belt
