.DISCUSSION...High pressure will remain just west of the region
through Wednesday, causing continued hot and dry conditions. A dry
upper trough passing through northern California into Nevada will
create gusty northerly flow in the vicinity of the Hill Fire...and
afternoon minimum humidities are likely to drop slightly compared to
Tuesday`s values...into the upper teens to near 20 percent. Northwest
winds will gust between 25 to 30 mph Wednesday afternoon into the
early evening. Overnight humidity recoveries are expected to drop
compared to recent nights, with maximum values near 70 percent. Winds
will become light late Wednesday night.

An upper level ridge will start to rebuild across the region Thursday
and Friday. This will lead to a shrinking marine layer and a warming
and drying trend for interior SLO County. Gusty onshore/northwest
winds are likely to occur each afternoon during this time.
