HOLIDAY WEEKEND. CONTINUED DRY THROUGH NEXT WEEK UNDER SOUTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT WITH A DEEPER MARINE LAYER AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS ALONG
THE WEST COAST. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES INLAND WILL BE 4 TO 8 DEGREES
BELOW EARLY SEPTEMBER AVERAGES...AND ONSHORE FLOW WILL KEEP RELATIVE
HUMIDITY ELEVATED WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS. AS THE SEA BREEZE DEVELOPS
INLAND EACH AFTERNOON AND EVENING...WESTERLY WINDS WILL BECOME QUITE
GUSTY THROUGH AND BELOW THE DESERT PASSES AND SLOPES.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


AN UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM COMBINED WITH WEAK ONSHORE FLOW
WILL CONTINUE TO BRING VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS TO INTERIOR SECTIONS
THROUGH SATURDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL FALL TO BETWEEN 10 AND 20 PERCENT ACROSS
MOST INTERIOR SECTIONS...WITH SINGLE DIGIT READINGS IN THE ANTELOPE
VALLEY.

GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE PASSES AND
CANYONS OF SOUTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FROM THE LATE AFTERNOON
THROUGH NIGHTTIME HOURS THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. WIND GUSTS ARE
EXPECTED TO RANGE BETWEEN 30 AND 40 MPH WITH TONIGHT`S EVENT...MOSTLY
FOCUSED ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE SOUTH COAST. TOMORROW NIGHT`S EVENT
IS EXPECTED TO BE SLIGHTLY STRONGER AND MORE WIDESPREAD. WIND EXPOSED
LOCATIONS AND FOOTHILLS WILL GENERALLY SEE HUMIDITIES IN THE TEENS
WITH TEMPERATURES CLIMBING TO 90 DEGREES OR ABOVE. THE COMBINATION OF
GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS...LOW HUMIDITIES...AND WARM TEMPERATURES WILL
BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER TO THE SANTA BARBARA SOUTH COAST AND ADJACENT
FOOTHILLS THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...WITH BRIEF PERIODS OF CRITICAL FIRE
WEATHER CONDITIONS EACH NIGHT. GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES
WILL ALSO IMPACT THE INTERSTATE 5 CORRIDOR OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY
MOUNTAINS AND ANTELOPE VALLEY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION TODAY WILL
CONTINUE TO BRING WARMER TEMPERATURES AND LOWER HUMIDITIES. SLIGHT
COOLING CONDITIONS WILL ARRIVE OVER THE WEEKEND AS A LOW PRESSURE
TROUGH PASSES TO THE NORTH. GENERALLY LIGHT TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS
TODAY THEN BREEZY TO LOCALLY GUSTY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP THIS
WEEKEND. DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE PERIOD.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

AN APPROACHING TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL INCREASE
WINDS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY IN THE LEE OF THE SIERRA. A
DRY NORTHWEST FLOW WILL THEN BE IN PLACE THROUGH LABOR DAY. SATURDAY
WILL BE THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE WEEKEND...THEN TEMPERATURES WILL COOL
A FEW DEGREES ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY...BUT REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE
SEASONAL NORMALS.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


STRONG HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION WILL KEEP CONDITIONS
UNSEASONABLY WARM AND TEMPERATURES ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
DAYTIME HUMIDITIES WILL FALL AT OR BELOW 10 PERCENT FROM THE SOUTH-
CENTRAL AZ DESERTS WESTWARD BEYOND THE CO RIVER VALLEY AND IN THE
10-20 PERCENT RANGE IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES
WILL RANGE FROM FAIR TO GOOD. WINDS WILL FOLLOW TYPICAL
DIURNAL OR DRAINAGE HEADINGS WITH MOSTLY LIGHT SPEEDS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...
