556 AM PDT MON SEP 26 2016

.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN OVER THE
REGION WITH TEMPERATURES RISING TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL. AN OFFSHORE
SURFACE FLOW WILL RESULT IN LOW AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES WITH LOCALLY
POOR OVERNIGHT RECOVERY. BREEZY TO GUSTY WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO
AFFECT PARTS OF THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERT. COOLER TEMPERATURES AND
SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED LATER THIS WEEK AS AN
UPPER TROUGH PUSHES INTO THE REGION.
