Humidities over the ridges lowered into the 30-40% range around sunrise this morning, while elevations below 3500 feet recovered into the 60-80% range.Northeast winds of 10-15 mph developed on the ridgetops with light downslope winds elsewhere. Along the Smith River, east winds gusted in the 15-25 mph range early this morning. Temperatures fell into the 50s across all elevations. Warmer and drier conditions are expected over the fire area today highs in the 70s on the ridges and in the 90s at lower elevations. Afternoon relative humidities will lower into the 18-28% range. Gusty winds will exist from the northeast on the ridges during the morning hours before weakening a bit and becoming northwest in the afternoon. The lower elevations of the fire will primarily see upslope/upvalley winds. A morning inversion will trap smoke in some of the lower valleys before lifting shortly after midday.
