.DISCUSSION...

EARLIER COLD FRONT PASSAGE WILL BRING COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES
TO THE FIRE OVER THE WEEKEND. WEAK WEATHER DISTURBANCES ARE EXPECTED
OVER THE FIRE THROUGH THIS WEEKEND AND WILL KEEP WINDS BREEZY FROM
THE NORTHWEST. EXPECT WIND GUSTS UP TO 25 MPH THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING
WITH SLIGHTLY WEAKER WINDS ANTICIPATED FOR SUNDAY. A SMALL CHANCE OF
SHOWERS IS POSSIBLE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...BUT ANY WETTING RAINS WILL
LIKELY BE CONFINED AWAY FROM THE FIRE NEAR THE CASCADE CREST.
TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO NEAR NORMAL ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY WITH
ANOTHER COLD FRONT PASSAGE ARRIVING LATE ON TUESDAY.
