.DISCUSSION...
Another round of thunderstorms has quickly developed across the
fire site vicinity. The area of activity is sliding southeast, but
individual cells are moving northeast at 25 mph. The storms south
of the fire will slide south and not be much of a factor, but
other storms are developing to the north and may very well produce
some brief heavy rain and wind gusts to 45 mph at the fire
through about 10 PM. Once these storms pass, there is still a
chance of isolated showers overnight. RH recovery should be quite
good overnight. The chance of showers increases again by midday
Tuesday, but any thunderstorms will be weaker. BT
