.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE BERING AND LOW PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN GULF
OF ALASKA ARE KEEPING A TIGHT PRESSURE GRADIENT OVER THE FIRE THIS
MORNING. THIS IS RESULTING IN STRONG AND GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS. THE
WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME LESS GUSTY THIS AFTERNOON...AND A SHIFT
TO THE WEST IS EXPECTED TONIGHT WHICH WILL GREATLY REDUCE WIND SPEEDS.
THE WIND SHIFT WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ARRIVAL OF A WEAK FRONT THAT
MAY SPREAD SHOWERS OVER THE FIRE AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. SHOWERS WILL
BE LIKELY SATURDAY MORNING AS THE FRONT CROSSES THE AREA.
