.DISCUSSION...
SHORT LIVED HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE MOVING OVER THE FIRE SITE ON SATURDAY
WITH DRY CONDITIONS AND SUNNY SKIES. SOME GUSTY WINDS WILL MIX DOWN
DURING THE AFTERNOON WITH RIDGETOP GUSTS TO 30 MPH POSSIBLE BUT THE BURN
SITE SHOULD BE SHELTERED FROM THESE WINDS. IT WILL BE UNSTABLE SO EXPECT
GOOD MIXING HEIGHTS DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS.

HUMIDITY RECOVERY SATURDAY NIGHT WILL ONLY REACH 60 PERCENT WITH BREEZY
CONDITIONS CONTINUING AT THE RIDGETOPS. A WEATHER DISTURBANCE WILL
APPROACH FROM THE WEST ON SUNDAY WITH A SHOWER POSSIBLE LATE IN THE DAY
BUT THE BETTER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS IS SUNDAY NIGHT. CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE
INCREASE ON SUNDAY WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES AND HIGHER HUMIDITY. BORSUM
