SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
THROUGH THURSDAY AND BRING SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS AT TIMES. THERE
WILL ALSO BE A CHANCE OF DRY LIGHTNING STRIKES. THE LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM WILL MOVE EAST AND OUT OF THE AREA FRIDAY AND BRING AN END
TO THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. TEMPERATURES WILL BE A LITTLE
BELOW NORMAL THROUGH THURSDAY...INCREASING TO NEAR NORMAL
FRIDAY AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BY
WEDNESDAY AND REMAIN IN THE GENERAL AREA THROUGH THURSDAY OR
FRIDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN RELATIVELY COOL AND MOIST CONDITIONS
WITH A RAPIDLY DEEPENING MARINE LAYER PUSHING DEEP INTO THE
MOUNTAINS. THIS MARINE LAYER PATTERN SHOULD PRODUCE AREAS OF
DRIZZLE OR SHOWERS...ESPECIALLY AROUND THE FOOTHILLS. THE AIR WILL
BECOME UNSTABLE ABOVE THE MARINE LAYER...WHICH COULD RESULT IN AN
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM IN THE MOUNTAINS THROUGH THURSDAY. A
DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE UP ON WEDNESDAY WHICH WILL BRING THE BEST
CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS ON WEDNESDAY...FIRST ANYWHERE IN LOS
ANGELES COUNTY IN THE MORNING...THEN JUST OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND
DESERTS IN THE AFTERNOON. IF THUNDERSTORMS FORM...DRY LIGHTNING
WILL BE A CONCERN ALONG WITH GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS. AFTER
THURSDAY...THERE IS A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY WITH THE WEATHER PATTERN.
THERE IS A VERY SMALL CHANCE THAT MOISTURE FROM TROPICAL STORM
LOWELL MOVES INTO THE AREA ON FRIDAY...BUT COMPUTER PROJECTIONS
ARE TRENDING TOWARD A DRIER AND WARMER OUTCOME TOWARD THE WEEKEND
AND INTO NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

AN UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL DROP SOUTHWARD ALONG THE
CALIFORNIA COAST BRINGING A SLIGHT THREAT OF AFTERNOON
THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY OVER THE MOUNTAINS THROUGH WEDNESDAY. IN
ADDITION TEMPERATURES WILL COOL A FEW DEGREES ALONG WITH A SLIGHT
INCREASE IN HUMIDITIES. AN INCREASED ONSHORE FLOW WILL PROVIDE
SOME BREEZY TO GUSTY CONDITIONS THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT...ESPECIALLY
THROUGH AND BELOW MOUNTAIN PASSES. LIGHTER WINDS WILL PREVAIL THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK WITH LITTLE CHANGE IN TEMPERATURES AND
HUMIDITIES.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DROPPING DOWN THE WEST COAST
WILL ACT UPON MONSOON MOISTURE IN PLACE LEADING TO A CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS OVER SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA...SOUTHERN NEVADA AND
NORTHWEST ARIZONA AT LEAST THROUGH WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL
REMAIN SEVERAL DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE
REGION TODAY...WITH MUCH HIGHER CHANCES EXPECTED ON THURSDAY. GIVEN
THE HIGH DEWPOINTS ACROSS THE REGION...AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES WILL ONLY
DROP INTO THE 20-30 PERCENT RANGE WITH GOOD OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES
EXPECTED. WINDS SHOULD BE LIGHT AND SHOULD FOLLOW TYPICAL DIURNAL
PATTERNS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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