.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0247 AM CDT Tue Sep 26 2017/

An upper-level low forecast to be located over the lower CO River
Valley will begin to move northeast Wednesday, bringing weaker mid-
to upper-level flow of 20-25 kt over much of CA. Surface high
pressure should remain present over portions of the Pacific
Northwest and Great Basin regions.

...Portions of Southern CA...
Elevated fire-weather conditions will persist into Wednesday across
portions of southern California. The surface pressure gradient will
likely be strongest Wednesday morning before the upper-level low
begins to move out of the region. Wind speeds around 15-20 mph will
be possible Wednesday morning, with gusts to 30 mph in the
mountains/foothills, along with RH values between 10-15% and dry
fuels. Locally critical fire-weather conditions are again possible,
but appear too brief/isolated to warrant the inclusion of a critical
area at this time. Wind speeds should diminish throughout the
afternoon and evening. Elevated fire-weather conditions may occur
again early Thursday morning in response to the redeveloping surface
pressure gradient.
