...Dry Conditions with Light Winds Prevailing This Week...

.DISCUSSION...

Gradually warming temperatures, low afternoon humidities, and light
northeast winds are projected most of this week. Mountain ridges will
see periods of gusty winds tonight and Tuesday, while in the valleys
poor morning ventilation will occur at least through Thursday.

There is potential for a brush-by cold front Friday into Saturday
which could increase southwest winds some. Dry southwest flow is
expected to continue into early next week. No significant early-
season storms with widespread wetting rains or snow are on the horizon.

Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
Note:  Please see operating plan for detailed zone descriptions
