.DISCUSSION...

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE REGION WILL KEEP
COOLER AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS OVER THE BURN AREA TODAY AND
WEDNESDAY. LIGHT SHOWERS OVER THE PROPOSED BURN SITE ARE POSSIBLE
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. WIND ON WEDNESDAY SHOULD
BLOW FROM THE NORTH AND BE LESS GUSTY AND INTENSE IN COMPARISON TO
THE SOUTHWEST AND SOUTHERLY WINDS OF TODAY (TUESDAY). OF COURSE
NEAR ANY SHOWER WINDS DO BECOME A BIT MORE ERRATIC AND SHIFT
AT TIMES SO KEEP THIS IN MIND.
