.DISCUSSION...

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO THE FIRE THIS
AFTERNOON AFTER ANOTHER SURGE OF MOISTURE MOVES INTO CENTRAL
WYOMING. THUNDERSTORMS HAVE THREATS OF SMALL HAIL AND GUSTY AND
ERRATIC WINDS. GUSTS TO 40 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH STORM
ACTIVITY. THE DISTURBANCE CAUSING THESE SHOWERS WILL MOVE OUT OF
THE AREA BY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING WITH HIGH PRESSURE RETURNING.
MOISTURE MOVING ALONG THIS HIGH PRESSURE MAY GENERATE SOME
MOUNTAIN SHOWER ACTIVITY ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON...THOUGH CURRENT
THOUGHT IS THAT ACTIVITY WILL REMAIN SOUTH OF THE FIRE.
HOWEVER...IT MAY STILL BE POSSIBLE TO SEE PERIODS OF GUSTY WIND
FROM NEARBY STORMS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS...
...HAINES INDEX IS HIGH LEVEL HAINES BOTH DAY AND NIGHT...
