POSSIBLE ALONG AND NORTH OF HIGHWAY 20...WITH GUSTS OF 40-50 MPH
POSSIBLE ELSEWHERE. THE NORTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE MID-MORNING
AND CONTINUE INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. OTHERWISE A GRADUAL
WARMING TREND IS LIKELY INTO NEXT WEEK...BUT SUFFICIENT SNOW PACK
AND ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE WILL KEEP THE THREAT OF LARGE FIRE GROWTH
LOW.

LOWER TROPOSPHERIC MIXING OVERNIGHT TONIGHT WILL FAVOR A WEAKER
THAN NORMAL RADIATIONAL INVERSION OVERNIGHT...SMOKE DISPERSION
WILL BE GOOD UNTIL THE PRE-DAWN HOURS.
