.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms will once again develop this afternoon in
the vicinity of the burn location. Any thunderstorm will bring the
potential for wetting rains as well as cloud to ground lightning. The
greatest chances for thunderstorms will be between 2pm and 6pm. Winds
are not expected to be strong, except underneath any heavier thunderstorm
where gusts could reach 30 mph. RH values will recover well once again
tonight, especially if any rain falls over the burn location.
Thunderstorm coverage will be slightly less on Thursday as some drier
air works in from the northwest.
