DISCUSSION
 
 
MAINLY HOT AND DRY OVER THE DISTRICT THROUGH FRIDAY. SATURDAY  
WILL BE A BIT COOLER, THE A MORE SIGNIFICANT COOL DOWN WILL  
OCCUR SUNDAY AND LAST INTO MID WEEK NEXT WEEK WHEN TEMPERATURES  
BECOME MORE SEASONABLE. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN  
DRY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD.  
 
WE MAY SEE SOME NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS OVER PARTS OF  
THE DISTRICT ON FRIDAY AS THIS WILL BE THE HOTTEST DAY, AND IT  
WILL LIKELY BECOME BREEZY IN SOME AREAS.  
 
SMOKE DISPERSION WILL GENERALLY BE GOOD OR BETTER TOMORROW  
AFTERNOON AND FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
