.DISCUSSION...
HOT, VERY DRY WEATHER WILL PERSIST FRIDAY. OFFSHORE FLOW WILL END, SO
WE`LL HAVE MORE TYPICAL LATE-SUMMER WINDS THAT ARE LIGHT AND VARIABLE
IN THE MORNING, THEN BECOME BREEZY FROM THE NORTHWEST IN THE AFTERNOON
AND EARLY EVENING. RECOVERY FRIDAY NIGHT STILL WILL BE POOR TO MODERATE.
IT WILL REMAIN HOT AND DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND, BUT EXPECT A COOLING
TREND TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK. EXTENDED GUIDANCE INDICATES THE POTENTIAL FOR
A TROUGH MOVING INTO THE AREA LATE NEXT WEEK WITH COOLER CONDITIONS AND
HIGHER HUMIDITY. STILL A BIT EARLY TO HAVE MUCH CONFIDENCE IN
PRECIPITATION OUT THAT FAR, BUT WE HAVE INTRODUCED A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
SHOWERS THURSDAY.
