DISCUSSION
 
 
LIGHT OVERNIGHT WINDS AND COOL TEMPERATURES NEAR THE SURFACE WILL RESULT  
IN A SLIGHT INVERSION OVER THE BURN LOCATION TO START THE DAY ON  
SUNDAY. MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES WILL LEAD TO QUICK WARMING, AND  
THE INVERSION WILL MIX OUT LATER IN THE MORNING. A NORTHERLY BREEZE IN THE 5  
TO 10 MPH RANGE WILL RESULT IN A BRIEF PERIOD OF FAIR BURNING CONDITIONS  
IN THE MID AFTERNOON HOURS. EXPECT A SLIGHT BREEZE TO CONTINUE OVERNIGHT  
WITH SOME HIGH CLOUDS DRIFTING OVER THE BURN LOCATION. ON MONDAY, WINDS WILL  
INCREASE OUT OF THE WEST SOUTHWEST LEADING TO BETTER SMOKE DISPERSAL CONDITIONS.
