SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


THUNDERSTORMS HAVE ENDED EARLY THIS EVENING...WITH ONLY A FEW LIGHT
SHOWERS ENDING BY 900 PM IN THE VALLEYS. DRIER AND WARMER CONDITIONS
WILL RETURN FRIDAY AND LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK. LOCALLY GUSTY WEST WINDS MAY OCCUR FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND
IN THE DESERTS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


LOW PRESSURE OVER SRN CA IS STARTING TO MOVE SLOWLY SOUTH AND EAST
AWAY FROM OUR AREA. THIS HAS ALREADY RESULTED IN A SIGNIFICANT DROP
IN THE MARINE LAYER DEPTH AND DOUBLE DIGIT WARMING TRENDS BETWEEN
3000 AND 5000 FEET. HUMIDITIES IN THIS LAYER ARE TRENDING STRONGLY
LOWER THIS MORNING AS WELL. MOST OF THE REST OF THE AREA WILL BE
DRIER AND WARMER AS WELL BUT TO A LESSER DEGREE. THERE IS STILL SOME
LINGERING UNSTABLE AIR ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS, ESPECIALLY THE EASTERN
SAN GABRIELS, AND THE ANTELOPE VALLEY SO THERE IS STILL A VERY SMALL
CHANCE OF AN AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM THERE TODAY. IF THUNDERSTORMS
FORM...DRY LIGHTNING WILL BE A CONCERN ALONG WITH GUSTY AND ERRATIC
WINDS. THE AIR MASS WILL CONTINUE TO DRY AND STABILIZE FRIDAY AND
THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH VIRTUALLY NO CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY. TEMPS NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW SEASONAL NORMS. A WARMING
TREND IS EXPECTED BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A DRY NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL RESIDE OVER THE
DISTRICT TONIGHT THROUGH THE WEEKEND AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE TRACKS FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO THE GREAT BASIN. AN
INCREASE IN ONSHORE FLOW IN THE LOW LEVELS WILL SUPPORT GUSTY WINDS
THROUGH AND BELOW THE MOUNTAIN PASSES ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY AND IN KERN COUNTY FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY
EVENING. TEMPERATURES WILL TREND COOLER THROUGH SATURDAY WITH LITTLE
CHANGE SUNDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL CHANGE LITTLE FROM DAY TO DAY OVER
THE HIGHER TERRAIN BUT INCREASE SLIGHTLY IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A CIRCULATION MOVING FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INTO
SOUTHWEST ARIZONA WILL CONTINUE TOWARD THE FOUR CORNERS REGION
FRIDAY. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DIMINISH TONIGHT THEN A FEW
LINGERING STORMS MAY OCCUR OVER NORTHWEST ARIZONA FRIDAY. A BROAD
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE BRUSHING NORTHERN NEVADA WILL LEAD TO DRY
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO IMPACT THE REGION THIS
EVENING...PARTICULARLY ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHWESTERN
ARIZONA. THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING GUSTY AND ERRATIC
WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS. DRIER
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AS THE FLOW BECOMES
WESTERLY IN THE WAKE OF A DEPARTING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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