SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING GREATER INLAND WARMING TODAY THROUGH THE
UPCOMING WEEKEND. HUMIDITIES WILL INCREASE AS A MINOR INTRUSION OF
MONSOONAL MOISTURE ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY COULD BRING A FEW
AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS TO THE MOUNTAINS...BUT WETTING
RAINS ARE NOT EXPECTED. A WEAK MARINE LAYER AND ONSHORE FLOW WILL
KEEP AREAS IMMEDIATELY NEAR THE COAST COOLER WITH HIGHER
HUMIDITIES. THE MARINE LAYER WILL REMAIN SHALLOW INTO NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE
TO BUILD OVER THE AREA THROUGH MONDAY. THURSDAY IS EXPECTED TO
BE THE WARMEST DAY THROUGH THE PERIOD AND TEMPERATURES WILL
LIKELY BE 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. TEMPERATURES WILL THEN
RANGE 3 TO 7 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY. THE
MARINE LAYER WILL RANGE FROM 1300 FEET ASL ALONG THE CENTRAL COAST
TO 1000 FEET ASL OR LESS SOUTH OF POINT TONIGHT THEN WILL DEEPEN
SLIGHTLY FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL PERSIST THROUGH
THE PERIOD. GUSTY NORTH AND NORTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED WEST OF
GOLETA ALONG THE SOUTH COAST OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY THIS EVENING.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A DRY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL PREVAIL OVER
THE REGION THROUGH THURSDAY. WHILE A FEW CLOUDS WILL BE
OBSERVED...THE PATTERN WILL REMAIN DRY WITH MINIMAL CONVECTIVE
POTENTIAL. LOWER HUMIDITIES AND MUCH WARMER WEATHER IS LIKELY
TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS TO THE AREA.
SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW ALOFT IS EXPECTED TO BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA CREST BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.
WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE DIURNAL AND TERRAIN INFLUENCED THROUGH
THE PERIOD.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL LEAD TO SLIGHT CHANCES OF
THUNDERSTORMS OVER NORTHWEST ARIZONA EACH DAY THROUGH FRIDAY. IT
WILL BE DRY ELSEWHERE WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES RUNNING ABOUT FIVE
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. MOISTURE WILL EVENTUALLY SPREAD NORTHWEST INTO
THE MOJAVE DESERT AND SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN OVER THE WEEKEND FOR AN
INCREASING CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


STRONG HIGH PRESSURE WILL HOLD OVER THE FOUR CORNERS...MAINTAINING
OUR WARMEST HIGH TEMPERATURES OF THE YEAR ALONG WITH WARM OVERNIGHT
LOWS. THE STRONGEST MONSOON STORM ACTIVITY IS MOST LIKELY TO REMAIN
OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND FOOTHILLS NORTH AND EAST OF
PHOENIX...WITH GREATER CHANCES OF GUSTY STORM OUTFLOW WINDS TO MOVE
INTO THE LOWER DESERT ELEVATIONS TONIGHT. STORM OUTFLOWS WILL WORK TO
INCREASE SURFACE DEWPOINTS...PROMOTING MODEST RECOVERIES ACROSS MUCH
OF AZ AND FAIR RECOVERIES WEST OF THE CO RIVER VALLEY.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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