.DISCUSSION...
FAIRLY TYPICAL MID-SUMMER WIND PATTERNS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE
UPCOMING WEEKEND. MAINLY TERRAIN DRIVEN SLOPE FLOWS UNDER 10 MPH,
WITH A BRIEF PERIOD OF SLIGHTLY STRONGER WEST/NORTHWEST WINDS LATE
IN THE AFTERNOONS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. POOR HUMIDITY RECOVERY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. STABILITY PROJECTIONS SUGGEST POTENTIAL FOR
LARGE PLUME DEVELOPMENT IF THE FIRE BECOMES SIGNIFICANTLY ACTIVE.
HOT TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT WINDS WILL RULE MOST OF NEXT WEEK.
THANKS FOR THE DETAILED WEATHER OBSERVATIONS!
