.DISCUSSION...A DISSIPATING COLD FRONT MOVED THROUGH THE FIRE AREA
EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON...BUT WITH LITTLE FANFARE OTHER THAN A SUBTLE
WIND SHIFT TO A MORE NORTHWESTERLY DIRECTION. BASED ON OBSERVATIONS

NIGHT WITH GOOD HUMIDITY RECOVERY. TEMPERATURES SHOULD REMAIN NEAR

TUESDAY...BUT THE BEST CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN
SOUTH AND EAST OF THE FIRE AREA. A COOL SPRINGLIKE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM

SOME SHOWERS AND THE REMOTE POSSIBILITY OF A THUNDERSTORM MIDWEEK. IT

REBOUND BACK TO NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED LATER IN THE WEEK.
