SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HUMIDITY WILL INCREASE TODAY AND FRIDAY AS A WEAK LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM MOVES INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. IT WILL ALSO BRING A VERY
SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS IN THE MOUNTAINS. HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS
FOR A WARMING TREND SUNDAY AND MONDAY. A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE
ARRIVES NEXT TUESDAY TO BRING COOLER MORE HUMID WEATHER...ALONG
WITH STRONG WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA WILL WEAKEN
TONIGHT. A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SOUTHEAST
OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC THURSDAY AND MOVE OVER THE AREA FRIDAY. A RIDGE
OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BUILD OVER THE AREA FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY.
THE MARINE LAYER WAS AROUND 2000 FEET ASL THIS MORNING AND IS EXPECTED TO
RANGE FROM 1600 FEET NORTH OF POINT CONCEPTION TO 2200 FEET ASL SOUTH TONIGHT.
THE MARINE LAYER IS EXPECTED TO DEEPEN TO APPROXIMATELY 3000 FEET THURSDAY
NIGHT THEN RETREAT SEAWARD SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. A COOLING TREND WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY AND TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY COOL TO 2 TO 4 DEGREES
BELOW SEASONAL NORMAL BY FRIDAY. A WARMING TREND IS EXPECTED SATURDAY THROUGH
SUNDAY AND INLAND TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY BE 3 TO 5 DEGREES ABOVE SEASONAL
NORMAL SATURDAY WHERE THE COASTAL TEMPERATURES WILL BE 1 TO 3 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL. AND BY SUNDAY TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY BE 3 TO 9 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
OVER THE ENTIRE AREA. MODERATE RELATIVE HUMIDITY RECOVERY IS EXPECTED IN THE
HIGH COUNTRY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT THEN POOR TO MODERATE RECOVERY IS EXPECTED
SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY NIGHT. GOOD RECOVERY IS EXPECTED IN THE LOWER
ELEVATIONS EACH NIGHT THROUGH THE PERIOD.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC
WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE DISTRICT SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH LOW HUMIDITIES. A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL
BRUSH THE AREA THURSDAY AFTERNOON...BRINGING SOME SHOWER ACTIVITY
TO THE SIERRA NEVADA...WITH A SLIGHT THUNDERSTORMS FRIDAY AND
SATURDAY. BREEZY CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH AND BELOW
THE PASSES OF THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

SOUTH WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A
WEATHER SYSTEM THAT WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES
WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL TODAY AND RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL
GENERALLY BE IN THE SINGLE DIGITS DURING THE AFTERNOON. THERE WILL
BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
AS THE WEATHER SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. ANY STORMS ARE EXPECTED
TO BE HIGH BASED...SO GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS MAY BE A CONCERN AND
LITTLE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED...ALTHOUGH A FEW HUNDREDTHS COULD
FALL AT THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. THIS SYSTEM WILL EXIT THE AREA SUNDAY
LEADING TO A RETURN TO DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES.



Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


A PACIFIC LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL BRING INCREASING MOISTURE
ALONG WITH COOLER CONDITIONS TO THE DESERT SOUTHWEST FRIDAY. GIVEN THE DRY
CONDITIONS AT THE SURFACE...THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR VIRGA WITH
LOCALIZED DOWNBURSTS AND FIRE DANGER WILL BE ENHANCED IN THESE
AREAS. WIDESPREAD CRITICAL THRESHOLDS SHOULD NOT BE REALIZED HOWEVER
AND RECOVERIES FRIDAY NIGHT WILL BE GOOD. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND EVEN
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AS THE ATMOSPHERE
BECOMES INCREASINGLY UNSTABLE. HOWEVER...RAIN CHANCES WILL GENERALLY
REMAIN CONFINED TO THE AREAS NORTH AND EAST OF PHOENIX.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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