Spot Forecast for Morgan Point RX...Mid Klamath Watershed Council
National Weather Service MEDFORD OR
916 PM PDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Forecast is based on ignition time of 0800 PDT on June 18.
If conditions become unrepresentative...contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...Cool, but dry weather will continue tonight. It`ll
be dry and turn warmer Tuesday and Wednesday with high pressure
sticking around through Friday. The humidity is expected to
increase above 20% around 7 PM Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and
fall below 20% by 10 or 11 am. The forecast mixing/inversion
height might actually be a little low. Some models show the
inversion sitting as high as 2000 feet.

**Interesting to hear about the east surface wind. I wonder if it
 was from some turning along the river valley? It`s hard to know
 for sure as the valley is tight enough our models can`t quite
 resolve the winds there. Sounds like everything else went well
 with respect to burning, and I hope your next window is just as
 fruitful.
