PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 300 AM CST FRI NOV 28 2014/

DISCUSSION...
HAVING A COOL AND DRY EARLY MORNING TODAY WITH TEMPERATURES
RANGING FROM AROUND FREEZING IN PARTS OF CENTRAL LA TO AROUND 40
ALONG THE I-10 CORRIDOR. TODAY WILL BE A REPEAT OF YESTERDAY WITH
PLENTY OF SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES WARMING AGAIN INTO THE 60S.

A WARMING TREND IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...AS WINDS SHIFT TO AN
ONSHORE FLOW. GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS SHOULD PREVAIL. HOWEVER...AN
UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE MOVES ACROSS THE REGION MONDAY...SO HAVE
INCREASED THE CHANCE FOR RAIN TO THE 30-40 PERCENT RANGE. AT THIS
POINT DO NOT EXPECT ANY THUNDERSTORMS WITH THIS SYSTEM.

SMALL RAIN CHANCES DOT THE FORECAST FOR THE REMAINDER OF NEXT
WEEK...THANKS TO A SERIES OF QUICK-MOVING SHORTWAVES MOVING
THROUGH A ZONAL FLOW PATTERN...BUT NO SIGNIFICANT QPF IS EXPECTED.
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL AS WELL.
