.DISCUSSION...
I HAVE INCLUDED THIS SATURDAY DETAILS AS THIS MAY BE A SIGNIFICANT DAY
FOR THOSE WITH FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.

LOOKING TO NEXT WEEK...WE EXPECT ANOTHER GOOD WEATHER DISTURBANCE
ON TUESDAY TO PRODUCE SOME SHOWERS OVER THE BURN SITE. OVERALL
PATTERN LOOKS GENERALLY BREEZY TO WINDY WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
SO SITE MAY DRY OUT RELATIVELY QUICKLY. THURSDAY LOOKS DRY IN THE
MORNING...BUT A CHANCE OF SHOWERS DEVELOPING IN THE AFTERNOON.
MORNING MAY PROVIDE ADEQUATE TIME FOR BURN AND BEST CHANCE OF
LOWER WIND CRITERIA EARLY. AFTERNOON PERIOD MAY BE COMPLICATED BY
HIGHER WIND GUSTS /GREATER THAN 25 MPH/ AND POTENTIAL SHOWER
DEVELOPMENT. FRIDAY LOOKS VERY UNSETTLED AT THIS TIME WITH SHOWERS
AND COOLER WEATHER. WE ARE STILL A LONG WAY OUT FROM THESE DAYS SO
FEEL FREE TO REQUEST OUTLOOK SPOTS AS NEEDED. BT
