.DISCUSSION...Today will run a few degrees cooler than yesterday
with a slight increase in RHs. A northwest to north wind is
expected to develop over the area today, however most of the fire
appears to be sheltered from this wind direction and thus these
winds will most likely be felt near ridge tops. Thunderstorm
development is possible this afternoon, likely between 1500 and
1900 MDT. Any storms that develop will be capable of gusty erratic
winds, brief heavy rain, lightning and possibly small hail.
Tomorrow will trend warmer and drier again.
