...SYNOPSIS...
A MID/UPPER-LEVEL LOW WILL CONTINUE DRIFTING NORTH FROM BAJA
CALIFORNIA TOWARDS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...WHILE RIDGING TO ITS NORTH
SHIFTS EASTWARD FROM THE GREAT BASIN TO THE CENTRAL ROCKIES. FARTHER
EAST...STRONG CYCLONIC FLOW ALOFT WILL REMAIN ESTABLISHED ACROSS THE
GREAT LAKES AND MID/UPPER MS VALLEY...AS A LOW DROPS SOUTH FROM LAKE
SUPERIOR TOWARDS IL.

...PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...
WHILE FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS WILL BE CONSIDERABLY LOWER THAN THOSE OF
THE PREVIOUS DAYS...ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE STILL ANTICIPATED...
PRIMARILY DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE PERIOD. A SOMEWHAT ENHANCED
SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT TUESDAY MORNING SHOULD PROMOTE SUSTAINED
EASTERLY WINDS AROUND 20-25 MPH /WITH HIGHER GUSTS/...ESPECIALLY
OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF SAN DIEGO AND RIVERSIDE COUNTIES.
FOLLOWING SUNRISE...RH VALUES SHOULD FALL INTO THE TEENS AND
20S...WITH SOME BREEZINESS PERSISTING ACROSS SOUTHERN
CA...ESPECIALLY IN TERRAIN-FAVORED LOCATIONS. GIVEN THE PRESENCE OF
VERY DRY FUELS...FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS WILL REMAIN ELEVATED.
HOWEVER...THESE CONCERNS SHOULD TREND DOWNWARD LATER IN THE DAY...AS
WINDS DECREASE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...AND RH VALUES INCREASE
THROUGH THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS WITH THE APPROACH OF A
MID-LEVEL LOW.
