.DISCUSSION...

There is a good chance of rain starting tonight, but
particularly Wednesday and Wednesday night.  Cloud cover, and
possibly rain, today will keep temperatures a little below
normal, and minimum RHs above 25%.  Recovery will be
excellent tonight and again Wednesday night.  20 foot winds
will stay in the 5-10 mph range today as they veer around
to the east then southeast.  Thunderstorms could develop at
the burn site this afternoon/evening, or develop over the
higher terrain west of the burn site which could bring
winds around to the west this afternoon/evening.  It could be
very wet at the burn site as early as tonight, but even moreso
Wednesday.  If thunderstorms do not develop this afternoon/
evening, 20 foot winds will come around to the south, but should
tend toward the southeast barring thunderstorm development on
Wednesday.
