.DISCUSSION...Overnight tonight, expect light offshore winds to
develop along ridgetops, and light downslope/downvalley winds in
protected valleys. A thermal belt is expected to develop above a
valley inversion, and as a result valleys will see moderate to
good recoveries, but the upper slopes and taller ridges will see
moderate to poor recoveries.

Hot and dry conditions will continue tomorrow, with mostly light
southerly winds and a prominent terrain influence. Expect upslope
winds to become more dominant later in the afternoon. Humidities
will be low by mid afternoon. Thermal belt development and
moderate to poor ridgetop recoveries are expected again Sunday
night.
