front with continued gusts up to 45 mph overnight. This wind
shift may impact any ongoing wildfire suppression efforts.

A slight chance of thunderstorms are forecast over far northwest

may allow for a brief window, between 8 PM and midnight, for a
storm to become strong to severe with large hail the primary
