SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE GREAT BASIN WILL BRING
NORTHEASTERLY WINDS 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 50 MPH TONIGHT
THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. ISOLATED GUSTS TO 60 MPH ARE POSSIBLE
AT THE MOST WIND PRONE LOCATIONS. MIN RH WILL DROP TO AROUND 20
PERCENT TUESDAY AFTERNOON WITH MODERATE RH RECOVERIES TUESDAY
NIGHT. A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL BRING GUSTY ONSHORE
WINDS...HIGHER RH VALUES...AND LOWER TEMPERATURES ON CHRISTMAS DAY.
INCREASED FUEL MOISTURE FROM RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL KEEP THE
FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL LOW. WEAK TO MODERATE OFFSHORE FLOW WILL
REDEVELOP FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND.



Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES TODAY WITH A
LOW PRESSURE TROUGH DEVELOPING OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST. THIS
OFFSHORE PATTERN WILL GENERATE MODERATE NORTHEAST WINDS TONIGHT
THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING ACROSS THE VENTURA AND LOS ANGELES
COUNTY MOUNTAINS...VALLEYS AND COASTAL DISTRICTS. GUSTS OF 40 TO
50 MPH WILL OCCUR IN THE TYPICAL SANTA ANA CORRIDORS WITH
HUMIDITIES LOWERING INTO THE 20 TO 25 PERCENT RANGE TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY. POOR HUMIDITY RECOVERIES WILL OCCUR FOR MANY AREAS
TUESDAY NIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL PUSH ABOVE NORMAL ON TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY AND BE CLOSE TO 80 DEGREES FOR VALLEYS AND COASTS.

A FAST-MOVING STORM SYSTEM WILL SLIDE ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL INCREASE HUMIDITY
AND LOWER TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE FIRE DISTRICT WITH A FEW LIGHT
SHOWERS POSSIBLE ALONG THE NORTH SLOPES OF THE MOUNTAINS ON
CHRISTMAS DAY. OFFSHORE FLOW SHOULD REDEVELOP BEHIND THIS SYSTEM
ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY FOR WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX


THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CENTER ITSELF CLOSER TO THE WEST
COAST...RESULTING IN THE CONTINUATION OF THE STAGNANT WEATHER
PATTERN. CLOUDS...FOG AND COLD TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
TUESDAY AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM EXPECTED TO CROSS OVER THE
NORTHERN PARTS OF THE DISTRICT ON CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS
DAY. THIS DISTURBANCE WILL TEMPORARILY DISPLACE THE UPPER RIDGE
AND BRING POSSIBLE PRECIP ALONG WITH STRONGER WINDS. YET...THE
RIDGE WILL THEN BUILD BACK INLAND LATE IN THE WEEK.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A STRONG JET STREAM PASSING ACROSS NEVADA WILL KEEP A
GOOD AMOUNT OF CLOUDS AROUND THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AND ALSO ALLOW
FOR A STRAY SHOWER IN NORTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY. A SYSTEM WILL PUSH
ACROSS UTAH ON MONDAY INCREASING NORTHERLY WINDS ACROSS THE AREA AS
WELL AS BRING THE POSSIBILITY OF A FEW SHOWERS ONCE AGAIN TO
NORTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY. OTHERWISE EXPECT DRY CONDITIONS WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES CLOSE TO RECORD LEVELS ON MONDAY. MILD WEATHER WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH CHRISTMAS EVE. ANOTHER SYSTEM WILL PASS ACROSS THE
AREA LATE CHRISTMAS EVE INTO CHRISTMAS DAY FOLLOWED BY COLDER
CONDITIONS ALONG WITH GUSTY WINDS FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


A SOMEWHAT ELEVATED FIRE DANGER WILL DEVELOP TUESDAY ACROSS SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA AND THE COLORADO RIVER VALLEY AS NORTH WINDS STRENGTHEN IN
THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON. GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH WILL BE
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY OVER RIDGE TOPS AND THROUGH NORTH-SOUTH CHANNELED
RIVER VALLEYS. HOWEVER...HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL ONLY FALL INTO A 20 TO
30 PERCENT RANGE PRECLUDING A HIGHER FIRE DANGER.
OTHERWISE...TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR OR ABOVE AVERAGE WITH GOOD TO
EXCELLENT OVERNIGHT RECOVERY.

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