SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


DRYING OF THE MONSOONAL MOISTURE THAT BROUGHT THUNDERSTORMS THE PAST
FEW DAYS IS UNDERWAY...BUT THE REMAINING MOISTURE MIGHT BE
SUFFICIENT FOR A FEW THUNDERSTORMS NEAR THE MOUNTAINS THIS
AFTERNOON. DRIER WEATHER WILL THEN PREVAIL FOR MUCH OF THE REST OF
THE WEEK...BUT WITH SOME RETURN OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE POSSIBLE FOR
FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND. SLOW WARMING IS EXPECTED INTO THE WEEKEND
FOLLOWED BY SLOW COOLING INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. WEAK ONSHORE FLOW AND
DRYING OF MID AND UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE SHOULD ALLOW FOR SOME RETURN
OF THE MARINE LAYER FOR COASTAL AREAS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE CENTERED NEAR THE FOUR
CORNERS WILL PUSH TO THE SOUTH INTO SOUTHERN ARIZONA BY
WEDNESDAY...BEFORE PUSHING BACK TO THE NORTH OVER THE WEEKEND.
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE INTO THIS EVENING THEN RELAX.
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL BE MUCH LESS AFTER THIS EVENING...EXCEPT
FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM OR SHOWER OVER THE INTERIOR
SECTIONS ON WEDNESDAY AS A DISTURBANCE FROM HURRICANE HERNAN
PASSES THROUGH

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK WITH
PERIODS OF MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW OVER INTERIOR AREAS THROUGH
MONDAY OR TUESDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL ABOVE TYPICAL SUMMER
LEVELS...BUT WILL DIP INTO THE TEENS EACH DAY OVER THE INTERIOR
VALLEYS AND MOUNTAINS. GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...ESPECIALLY OVER SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
AND THE I-5 CORRIDOR.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A NORTHERLY INFLUX OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL OCCUR
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE FOUR
CORNERS REGION THROUGH TONIGHT AND PROVIDE A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT OVER MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN THROUGH
THIS EVENING. THE FOUR CORNERS RIDGE WILL MIGRATE TOWARD SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA TUESDAY AND REMAIN THERE THROUGH FRIDAY. DURING THIS
TIME...A SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL PREVAIL OVER THE DISTRICT
WITH A DAILY THREAT OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ALONG
THE SIERRA CREST. TEMPERATURES WILL AVERAGE ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH
THE PERIOD WITH GENERALLY LIGHT AND TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL OCCUR THROUGH THIS EVENING ACROSS THE REGION. STORM COVERAGE
WILL DECREASE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY AS UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE LIFT
AWAY TO THE NORTH. MONSOON MOISTURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE MOSTLY
ACROSS NORTHWEST ARIZONA AND SOUTHERN NEVADA THROUGH THE WEEK
LEADING TO ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


A DECLINE IN ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE WILL OCCUR FROM WEST TO EAST TODAY
AND WEDNESDAY LEADING TO DECREASED HUMIDITIES AND BREAK IN
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...WITH ONLY VERY SLIGHT CHANCES OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN OF SOUTH-CENTRAL ARIZONA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE A FEW DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL. WINDS WILL FAVOR SOUTHWEST AND WEST DIRECTIONS.
