.DISCUSSION...
NORTHWEST WINDS WILL DIMINISH THIS EVENING AND THEN BECOME NORTHEAST
OVERNIGHT. THE INVERSION WILL FORM NEAR 5000 FT MSL, SO THERE IS
THE POTENTIAL OF A THERMAL BELT WITH SOME CONTINUED ACTIVE BURNING
ABOVE THAT LEVEL. IT WILL BE ABOUT 7 DEGREES WARMER TOMORROW AND
HUMIDITIES WILL BE A BIT DRIER. SATURDAY NIGHT RECOVERIES WILL
BE LESSER AS THE INVERSION STRENGTHENS AGAIN NEAR 5000 FT MSL.
ACTIVE BURNING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED WITH ANY FIRE ABOVE 5000 FT
MSL SATURDAY NIGHT.
