.DISCUSSION...
Little change expected through Thursday. The extended period of
offshore flow will continue, but will be half as strong as what
occurred last week and with more onshore flow in the afternoon. The
humidities will remain very dry with poor overnight recoveries,
especially over the higher elevations around the fire. Daytime
temperatures will rise into the 80`s. The current Red Flag Warning
will likely be extended, but maybe not for the area of this burn.
