SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


A DEEP TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL BRING COOLER...LESS HUMID
WEATHER TODAY AND FRIDAY ALONG WITH THE RETURN OF THE MARINE
LAYER. STRONGER ONSHORE FLOW WILL BRING GUSTY WEST WINDS TO THE
MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THERE IS A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS SATURDAY
AFTERNOON. HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL BUILD OVER THE REGION EARLY
NEXT WEEK FOR DRY AND WARMER WEATHER.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

WHILE TEMPERATURES ARE STILL NOT QUITE AS HOT TODAY
AS COMPARED TO YESTERDAY...TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT IS STILL BEING FELT
ACROSS WARMEST INTERIOR SECTIONS. SOME RESIDUAL MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY
WILL BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAINS AND
ANTELOPE VALLEY...MAINLY EASTERN PORTIONS. IF STORMS DEVELOP...THEY WILL
LIKELY BE WETTER THAN YESTERDAY...THEREBY REDUCING THE THREAT OF DRY
LIGHTNING STRIKES.

GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS WILL IMPACT PORTIONS OF THE SANTA BARBARA SOUTH
COAST AND SANTA YNEZ RANGE THROUGH THIS EVENING. THE STRONGEST
WINDS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE FOCUSED ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS...WHERE GUSTS
UP TO 40 MPH CAN BE EXPECTED. TEMPERATURES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO
BE QUITE AS HOT AND DRY AS YESTERDAY...BUT WE COULD STILL SEE TEMPERATURES
CLIMB INTO THE  90S WITH HUMIDITIES FALLING TO BETWEEN 15
AND 25 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON.

MORE SIGNIFICANT COOLING IS EXPECTED THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY AS STRONGER ONSHORE
FLOW AND MARINE LAYER CLOUDS RETURN TO THE REGION. MILD TEMPERATURES EXPECTED
THIS WEEKEND...THEN A GRADUAL WARMING TREND EARLY NEXT WEEK. THERE IS THE
POTENTIAL FOR MORE SIGNIFICANT HEAT WITH OFFSHORE FLOW BY THE MIDDLE OF
NEXT WEEK.




Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

AN UPPER TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO CALIFORNIA TONIGHT
AND THURSDAY AND WILL REMAIN OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL COOL BACK TO NEAR OR SLIGHTLY BELOW
NORMAL LEVELS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD EARLY NEXT WEEK FOR A WARMING AND
DRYING TREND.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ODILE WILL TRACK EAST OF OUR
AREA THROUGH THURSDAY. A SURGE OF MOISTURE FROM THIS STORM WILL
INCREASE THE THREAT OF SCATTERED AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS AND FLASH
FLOODING FOR PORTIONS OF THE AREA. AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL
MOVE INTO THE AREA ON THURSDAY EVENING TO BEGIN A DRYING TREND.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


HUMIDITIES WILL REMAIN ELEVATED THROUGH FRIDAY AS THE REMNANTS OF
HURRICANE ODILE SLOWLY EXIT THE AREA. THIS WILL RESULT IN A FAIRLY
TYPICAL MONSOON PATTERN OF PRIMARILY MOUNTAIN SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS...WITH MUCH MORE ISOLATED ACTIVITY ACROSS THE DESERTS.
SOME DRIER AIR WILL BEGIN TO WORK INTO THE AREA THIS WEEKEND BUT
UNTIL THEN HUMIDITIES WILL REMAIN IN THE 20-30 PERCENT RANGE EACH
AFTERNOON WITH GOOD/EXCELLENT OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES EXPECTED. OUTSIDE
OF THUNDERSTORMS...WINDS WILL BE LIGHT AND WILL FAVOR THE TYPICAL
DIURNAL PATTERNS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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