.DISCUSSION...
DRY HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL GRADUALLY RETURN NEXT WEEK AS
ANOTHER COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTH.

SURFACE WIND WILL BE NORTHWEST THIS AFTERNOON AT THE RIDGETOP. HOWEVER...
THE WIND ON THE EAST FACING SLOPE OF THE BLUE RIDGE MAY BECOME LIGHT
UPSLOPE FOR MOST OF THE AFTERNOON NEAR THE FIRE. WIND SHOULD BECOME LIGHT
DOWNSLOPE AROUND SUNSET.

A FEW SHOWERS MAY DEVELOP NEAR THE BLUE RIDGE SUNDAY AFTERNOON...BUT
PROBABLY NOT AT THE FIRE SITE. WIND SHOULD BE A BIT STRONGER ON SUNDAY
AFTERNOON...WITH THE SURFACE WIND AROUND THE HIGH PRESSURE AREA
COMBINING FAVORABLY WITH THE UPSLOPE WIND ON THE EAST SLOPE.
