DISCUSSION...
THE MAIN MONSOON MOISTURE PLUME WILL REMAIN TO THE WEST OF THE FIRE
AREA THROUGH MOST OF THE DAY TODAY. LOOK FOR A FEW ISOLATED CELLS
TO DEVELOP OVER THE SOUTHERN JEMEZ MOUNTAINS BUT NOT AS PROLIFIC AS
YESTERDAY. STORM MOTION WILL BE MUCH FASTER TODAY AND FROM SOUTH
TO NORTH OR SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST. THE BEST CHANCE FOR THE FIRE
TO RECEIVE SOME MOISTURE WOULD BE DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT
HOURS. THIS COULD BE A STEADIER 2 TO 4 HOUR RAIN THAT MOVES IN FROM
EITHER THE SOUTH OR WEST. CONFIDENCE ISNT THE GREATEST THOUGH.
RESIDUAL HIGHER HUMIDITY AND COOLER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED WEDNESDAY.
PERHAPS A FEW STORMS AROUND ON WEDNESDAY BUT THE ATMOSPHERE COULD
BE A LITTLE TOO STABLE.
