DISCUSSION...
CURRENT STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT AREAS WELL SOUTH AND EAST OF THE
FIRE AREA. CANT RULE OUT A PASSING LIGHT SNOW SHOWER BUT THE MAIN
IMPACTS WILL BE WELL OUT OF THE AREA. MAX VENTILATION PROJECTED TO
BE IN THE POOR/FAIR BUFFER REGIME TODAY AND LOWER ON FRIDAY AS THE
UPPER RIDGE SHIFTS OVER THE AREA. LOOK FOR A FAIRLY STRONG
RADIATION INVERSION TO DEVELOP TONIGHT. THE SURFACE WIND FLOW
OVERALL WILL BE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WITH
HIGHER HUMIDITY.

NOTE: IN THE FUTURE PLEASE PUT IN REMARKS IF SNOW IS ON THE GROUND
BECAUSE THAT CAN IMPACT HUMIDITY AND TEMPERATURE FORECAST. THANKS.
