SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


WEAKENING GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES WILL CONTINUE
INTO THIS AFTERNOON. WEAKER OFFSHORE WINDS WITH A SLIGHT RECOVERY
IN HUMIDITIES FOR THANKSGIVING DAY. ONSHORE FLOW WILL RETURN ON
FRIDAY AND STRENGTHEN THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH A COOLING TREND
AND INCREASING HUMIDITIES. A PACIFIC LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM COULD
BRING SIGNIFICANT WETTING PRECIPITATION FOR LATE MONDAY INTO
TUESDAY OR EARLY WEDNESDAY.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


THE GUSTY WINDS FROM YESTERDAY REMAINS SIGNIFICANTLY WEAKER
TODAY...AS COLD AIR THAT WAS EXPECTED TO FUEL ANOTHER WIND BOOST
MOVED MUCH FURTHER TO THE EAST. THE STRONGEST NORTHEAST WINDS OVER
LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA COUNTIES THROUGH EARLY THURSDAY WILL
MOSTLY RANGE BETWEEN 10 AND 15 MPH SUSTAINED WITH GUSTS TO 30
MPH...AND BE LOCALIZED IN NATURE. DESPITE WIDESPREAD HUMIDITIES
UNDER 10 PERCENT...THESE WINDS WILL RESULT IN MARGINAL AND
ISOLATED CRITICAL CONDITIONS WHERE THE WINDS ARE THE STRONGEST.
THESE CONDITIONS DO NOT WARRANT A RED FLAG WARNING.

DESPITE COOLING CONDITIONS AND A RETURN OF ONSHORE FLOW ON FRIDAY
AND SATURDAY...VERY DRY AIR WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA. LOCALLY
GUSTY SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL BRING LOCALIZED CRITICAL CONDITIONS IN
THE MOUNTAINS AND INTERIOR VALLEYS. CONFIDENCE IS GROWING FOR A
SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM TO IMPACT THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEK...BUT
EXTACT TIMING IS TROUBLESOME AT THIS POINT. FOR NOW...MODERATE
RAINFALL WITH STRONG SOUTHERLY FLOW IS POSSIBLE ANYTIME FROM LATE
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ALONG THE WEST COAST WILL
COMBINE WITH AN OFFSHORE FLOW TO MAINTAIN A WARMING AND DRYING
TREND THROUGH THURSDAY. A COOLING TREND AND INCREASING HUMIDITY
WILL BEGIN FRIDAY AS A PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES THE REGION.
THE PASSING SYSTEM WILL BRING INCREASED WINDS AND CHANCES FOR
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE DISTRICT OVER THE WEEKEND.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE THE DOMININT FEATURE THROUGH THE
END OF THE WEEK WITH DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES.
THERE WILL BE ENOUGH OF A SURFACE GRADIENT TO BRING SOME GUSTY WINDS
DOWN THE COLORADO RIVER THIS AFTERNOON...BUT SPEEDS ARE ONLY
EXPECTED TO BE IN THE 10-20 MPH RANGE. LIGHTER WINDS ARE EXPECTED
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT WEATHER FEATURE ACROSS THE
SOUTHWEST THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN VERY LIGHT
DIURNALLY DRIVEN WINDS ALONG WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES. ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES AND LOW DEWPOINTS ARE ALSO EXPECTED. HUMIDITIES WILL
FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS EACH AFTERNOON FOLLOWED BY FAIR OVERNIGHT
RECOVERY.

NOTE...ADDITIONAL FIRE WEATHER FORECAST INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND
IN THE AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION. SEE PRODUCT PHXAFDPSR.
