.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FIRE WILL KEEP WINDS MAINLY
TERRAIN DRIVEN FOR THE REST OF TODAY AND THROUGH SATURDAY. CLOUD
COVER WILL INCREASE OVERNIGHT, THAT WILL MOSTLY BE HIGH, DUE TO
MONSOON MOISTURE MOVING IN FROM THE SOUTH. THIS MONSOON MOISTURE
WILL BRING A LOW CHANCE FOR A SHOWER NEAR THE FIRE ON SATURDAY BUT
CONFIDENCE IS HIGHEST FOR THESE SHOWERS TO PASS SOUTH OF THE FIRE.
SATURDAY WILL BE EVEN WARMER WITH SIMILAR TO SLIGHTLY LOWER
HUMIDITIES.
