.DISCUSSION...LOOK FOR NORTHERLY WINDS TO BE LESS THAN YESTERDAY. THE
TRADE OFF WILL BE LOW AFTERNOON RH VALUES OF 20-30%...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS THE S/SE HALF OF THE AREA. THIS LOW RH WILL INCREASE FIRE
DANGER SOME...BUT DUE TO RECENT RAINS...FUELS ARE WET AND THE OVERALL
TEMPERATURES ARE COLD. SIMILAR RH VALUES WILL EXIST FOR THE SAME
LOCATIONS SATURDAY. WINDS WILL BE LIGHTER DURING THIS TIME AND LOOK
FOR TRANSPORT WINDS TO BE QUITE LIGHT AS WELL. NO ISSUES WITH FOG ARE
EXPECTED. RAIN CHANCES LOOK TO RETURN BY LATER ON SUNDAY WITH BETTER
CHANCES FOR MONDAY AND DURING THE WORK WEEK.
