.DISCUSSION...
Strong southerly Chinook flow will continue to build throughout the
morning, reaching peak intensity in the early afternoon. Strong gusts
emanating from Isabel Pass will result in gusty, erratic winds for the
burn area. Additionally, low RH and increased daytime temperatures to
the mid 50s will persist through Wednesday. Despite the the presence of
cloud cover at times, no precip is expected due to the dry downsloping
nature of the winds.
