.DISCUSSION...

The forecast was updated to slightly increase (by 1-2 mph) wind
speeds and slow down the drop in relative humidity.

Cloud cover has cleared for the rest of the afternoon as the
trough of lower pressure moved through. Expect the relative
humidity to drop as heating ramps up with the sunshine. Breezy
northwest winds are expected through the afternoon.

High pressure will build into the region tonight, leading to
clear skies, light winds, and colder temperatures. Lows overnight
will dip into the middle 20s at the burn site.

Wednesday looks sunny and warmer, and it could be even drier.
Expect lighter, but southwest winds.
