Isolated thunderstorms developed over the area but produced no more than a little gusty wind. The hot and dry weather pattern continues. A morning weather balloon was launched and recorded very unstable atmosphere conditions which could have led to erratic winds. On Monday, the increase in moisture will lead to a higher chance of thunderstorms and possibly a wetting rain over the fire.
