.DISCUSSION...
A ridge of upper level high pressure will keep dry conditons over
the burn site the next two days. An area of low pressure along
the slopes of the Rockies will support downvally winds through the
period. Winds will be increasing through the day today as the low
pressure deepens with the strong winds continuing into the
evening hours before decreasing late tonight. Because of the winds
causing persistent mixing humidity minimums for the day are
already occuring and inversions will be slow to form so humidity
recovery will not begin until after midnight. The high pressure
will move east Thursday night allowing for cooler weather with a
chance of showers arriving Friday. borsum
