.DISCUSSION...
WEAK LOW PRESSURE REMAINS OVER SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA TODAY WITH
PLUME-DRIVEN FIRE BEHAVIOR ANTICIPATED FOR ONGOING WILDFIRES. THE
MARINE INVERSION WAS ONLY 800 FEET DEEP TO THE SOUTH AND ABOUT
1200 FEET NORTH THIS MORNING. LOW CLOUDS AND FOG WERE MAINLY
CONFINED TO THE CENTRAL COAST ZONES AND JUST WEST OF THE REY FIRE.
ABOVE THE INVERSION LEVEL THE AIR MASS WILL REMAIN DRY AND A
LITTLE UNSTABLE TO CREATE ERRATIC FIRE ACTIVITY AND TALL SMOKE
PLUMES NEAR ACTIVE FIRES. SOUTHEAST FLOW ALOFT WILL CONTINUE TO
TRANSPORT MID AND HIGH CLOUDS OVER THE DISTRICT AT TIMES TODAY BUT
NO CONVECTION IS EXPECTED FOR THE MOUNTAINS. ONSHORE PRESSURE
GRADIENTS WILL CREATE LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS FOR THE FOOTHILLS OF THE
ANTELOPE VALLEY TODAY.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OFF THE SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA COAST ON
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY RESULTING IN A SMALL WARMING TREND ACROSS
THE FIRE DISTRICT. INCREASING NORTHERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL GENERATE
WEAK SUNDOWNER WINDS WEST OF GOLETA MAINLY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
EVENINGS, BUT WELL BELOW WIND ADVISORY LEVEL CRITERIA. OTHER AREAS
WILL SEE ONSHORE WINDS EACH AFTERNOON WITH HIGHEST GUSTS TO 40 MPH
FOR THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ANTELOPE VALLEY.

A LOW PRESSURE TROUGH WILL DEEPEN OVER THE ENTIRE STATE THURSDAY
AND FRIDAY. THIS WILL INCREASE THE ONSHORE FLOW ACROSS THE REGION
FOR COOLER TEMPERATURES AND HIGHER HUMIDITIES DISTRICT-WIDE LATE
IN THE WEEK.
