.DISCUSSION...

While there is a small chance of showers overnight in the burn
area, the best chances of rain will stay well to the west. Cloud
cover overnight will likely keep fog formation to a minimum, but
there may be some fog in the usual trouble spots. Light winds
tonight will pick up out of the south around daybreak on Saturday.
No additional fire weather concerns are expected.
