We are on STAND-DOWN for the entire weekend. The next update will be made 1500L Sunday, October 28. The short term forecast calls for low moisture, subsidence and clear skies with a ridge of high pressure that has built into the CLEX target region. This ridge will remain in place through Sunday, with no mid-level moisture present. As a result, we will stand down operations for both Saturday and Sunday. In the longer term, the CLEX target region will be under the influence of SWerly flow as the ridge builds eastward. The formation of appropriate mid- level clouds is possible but not likely to occur early next week. Wednesday looks like the next best chance for mid-level cloud formation, as a trough builds in from the NW. Curtis/Don/Larry/Adam
