.DISCUSSION...

Southerly winds today ahead of a strong cold front that arrives
between 5 and 7 pm. Isolated thunderstorms may develop this
afternoon in the vicinity of the fire, and any storms today will
produce strong wind gusts around 55 mph but not looking at much
rain because storms will be moving very quickly. Behind the front
winds will snap to the northwest and gust up to 40 mph for an hour
or two. Any showers will move out before midnight. Tomorrow will
be mostly sunny and windy with northwest gusts to around 35 mph
through most of the day. Can`t rule out an isolated shower or
thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon, after 3 pm. Chambers
