.DISCUSSION...
The unsettled weather will continue through Sunday night. it
looks like the storm this morning will move away from the burn
area over the next few hours. Another storm will move into the
region tonight and Sunday. Precipitation will likely just miss
the burn area, but strong winds will not. We expect to see the
winds to be on the increase through the night and peak early in
the afternoon. Strong, shifting, gusty winds are likely on Sunday
with wind gusts 30-35 mph.
