Forecast is based on ignition time of 1100 PDT on May 26.

Service.

.DISCUSSION...Slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. A
ridge of high pressure is building over the area which will keep
the storms from becoming very strong, though erratic winds 25 mph
are possible. General winds will shift from the northeast to the
northwest throughout the day. The southern exposure of the burn
site will provide some sheltering from the winds on the lower
slopes with potentially upslope/up valley winds. Mid-slopes will
have erratic winds this afternoon as the northerly ridge top winds
battle against the upslope flow in the sheltered areas on the
lower slopes.
