Remarks

Weather Synopsis

Weather Concerns
A ridge of high pressure continues across the fires today with slightly warmer temperatures and lower relative humidity values. Winds are generally terrain driven with speeds under 10 mph. Temperatures, relative humidity, and winds will vary based on aspect and elevation with warmest/driest conditions on west to southwest mid slope aspects. Highs will range from mid-teens to lower 20s.

A large dome of high pressure will expand across the Great Basin and nose into the Pacific Northwest for through early this upcoming week. This will result in continued dry conditions with critically low relative humidity values each afternoon as above normal temperatures prevail. Winds will generally be terrain driven for Monday, but as the southwest gradient increases, breeze ridgetop winds are possible on for Tuesday and Wednesday. After several nights of good recoveries, a trend toward less relative humidity recoveries at night with a developing thermal belt is possible by Tuesday.
