This morning a solar eclipse will have local effects on the fire
with mixing heights slower to rise and variable winds. Warmer
temperatures are forecast through Wednesday.  Instability
ahead of a strong cold front will bring a slight chance for showers
and thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  This will
be followed by windy conditions and possibly low relative humidity
for Thursday afternoon and evening.  Summer like weather returns by
