.DISCUSSION...A brief ridge of high pressure will bring clear
skies Thursday morning and slightly warmer and drier conditions
to the burn area. By late in the afternoon and evening, however,
another weak weather disturbance will brush the area to the north
and east. At this time, we are not expecting showers or
thunderstorms to reach the burn site, though a few may be visible
to the north and east. Winds should be a bit different than
recent days with more of an easterly direction, although local
terrain will continue to have a strong influence on wind
directions.
