.DISCUSSION...
THERE WILL BE A VERY WEAK WIND FIELD TODAY IN WESTERN WISCONSIN
AND THE DIRECTION SHOULD BE SOUTHERLY...BUT IT MAY VARY FROM
SOUTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE COURSE OF THE DAY. THERE IS A
WEAK AREA OF LOW PASSING OVERHEAD THIS AFTERNOON AND EVEN A SMALL
TRACK DEVIATION WOULD AFFECT THE LIGHT SURFACE WINDS. THE BURN SITE
WILL SEE HIGH CLOUDS THIS MORNING...BUT SHOULD GET FILTERED SUNSHINE
AT TIMES TODAY. I WOULDN`T WORRY TOO MUCH ABOUT THE RAIN CHANCE IN
THE AFTERNOON. WE THINK MOST OF IT WILL BE NORTHEAST OF YOU GUYS
BUT IT`S PROBABLY CLOSE ENOUGH TO GET A FEW SPRINKLES.
