The purpose of this report is to explain the windspeed increase on mountain slopes at night. Additional work is required to determine such things as the frequency of the winds, the area affected, seasonal variation, and the effect on fire behavior. Also, additional studies are needed to develop the type of procedures required to forecast these nocturnal mountain winds.
