.DISCUSSION...
Gusty northwest winds this morning will slowly move to the north
overnight and northeast by Thursday but are not expected to lose
their gustiness from here on to the weekend. A slight lull from
the gusts is possible this evening but will only be in place for
about 6 hours starting around 7PM.

Conditions at the burn site should be mostly dry today with an
isolated shower possible. Showers will increase in coverage overnight
with a brief lull Thursday morning in the hit-and-miss rain. Late
Thursday thunderstorms will be possible with small hail. These will
morph overnight into a long soak that will last into the weekend
with 1 to 2 inch totals expected. Be ready for muddy roads.
