SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


PERIODS OF GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
WEDNESDAY...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS OCCURRING TONIGHT THROUGH
WEDNESDAY MORNING. DAY-TIME HUMIDITIES WILL FALL BELOW 10 PERCENT
WITH LITTLE TO NO OVERNIGHT RECOVERY. WEAKER EAST WINDS ARE
EXPECTED IN THE MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS OF RIVERSIDE AND SAN DIEGO
COUNTIES ON THANKSGIVING DAY. ONSHORE FLOW WILL RETURN FOR FRIDAY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WITH A COOLING TREND AND INCREASING
HUMIDITIES. SIGNIFICANT WETTING PRECIPITATION IS POSSIBLE FOR
EARLY NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


THE GUSTY WINDS FROM YESTERDAY HAVE WEAKENED SIGNIFICANTLY...AS
COLD AIR THAT WAS EXPECTED TO FUEL ANOTHER WIND BOOST MOVED MUCH
FURTHER TO THE EAST. NORTHEAST WINDS OVER LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
COUNTIES WILL MOSTLY RANGE BETWEEN 10 AND 20 MPH SUSTAINED WITH
GUSTS TO 35 MPH. DESPITE WIDESPREAD HUMIDITIES UNDER 10
PERCENT...THESE WINDS WILL RESULT IN ONLY MARGINAL AND LOCALIZED
RED FLAG CONDITIONS TODAY WHERE THE WINDS ARE THE STRONGEST.
WINDS MAY STRENGTHEN A LITTLE TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY...BUT RED FLAG
CONDITIONS STILL LOOK MARGINAL AT MOST. WEAKER WINDS SIMILAR TO
TODAY EXPECTED WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THANKSGIVING. ELEVATED FIRE
WEATHER CONCERNS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THURSDAY...BUT A DECISION ON
WHETHER THE RED FLAG WARNING SHOULD BE CANCELED WILL BE MADE THIS
AFTERNOON.

DESPITE COOLING CONDITIONS AND A RETURN OF ONSHORE FLOW...VERY
DRY AIR WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.
LOCALLY BREEZY 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 SUNDAY
AND MONDAY...WITH MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN AND STRONG SOUTHERLY
FLOW.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ALONG THE WEST COAST WILL
COMBINE WITH AN OFFSHORE FLOW TO BRING A WARMING AND DRYING
TREND THROUGH THURSDAY. A COOLING TREND AND INCREASING HUMIDITY
WILL BEGIN FRIDAY AS A STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES THE DISTRICT.
WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT...INCREASING OVER THE RIDGETOPS
AFTER THANKSGIVING.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION WILL LEAD TO DRY
CONDITIONS AND LIGHT WINDS. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN CLOSE TO NORMAL
TODAY AND WEDNESDAY AND THEN INCREASE TO SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL BY THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AND REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN IS SETTING UP FOR NEXT WEEK
ALONG WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF WIDESPREAD RAINFALL BY THE BEGINNING
TO MIDDLE PART OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT NEAR THE WEST COAST WILL PROVIDE A DRY NORTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT INTO ARIZONA AND SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA TODAY THROUGH
WEDNESDAY...FOR SUNNY DAYS AND CLEAR NIGHTS. MINIMUM HUMIDITIES WILL
BE VERY LOW TODAY...MOSTLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS...WITH A FEW PERCENT
INCREASE WEDNESDAY. FAIR TO GOOD OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL ARIZONA WITH POORER RECOVERY EXPECTED OVER
SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL HOVER SLIGHTLY
BELOW SEASONAL NORMALS...THEN RISE OVER 5 DEGREES TO ABOVE NORMAL
LEVELS WEDNESDAY. WINDS WILL BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE EACH DAY.

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