.DISCUSSION...
Light overnight winds and cool temperatures near the surface will result
in a slight inversion over the burn location to start the day on
Sunday. Mostly sunny skies will lead to quick warming, and
the inversion will mix out later in the morning. A northerly breeze in the 5
to 10 mph range will result in a brief period of fair burning conditions
in the mid afternoon hours. Expect a slight breeze to continue overnight
with some high clouds drifting over the burn location. On Monday, winds will
increase out of the west southwest leading to better smoke dispersal conditions.
