AN UPPER RIDGE OFF THE WEST COAST WILL MAINTAIN NORTHWEST FLOW

CANYONS OF THE SANTA  BARBARA SOUTH COAST THIS EVENING.

WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY THE OFFSHORE RIDGE WILL BEGIN TO PUSH
EASTWARD OVER THE WEST COAST...BRINGING A SIGNIFICANT WARMING AND
DRYING TREND THAT MAY PERSIST THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES
WILL RISE STEADILY THROUGH LATE IN THE WEEK WITH THE PEAK EXPECTED
ON SATURDAY. AT THE SAME TIME...OFFSHORE GRADIENTS WILL BRING A
CORRESPONDING DRYING TREND. THERE IS AN INCREASING POSSIBILITY OF
WEAK TO MODERATE OFFSHORE WINDS DEVELOPING OVER INTERIOR SECTIONS OF
VENTURA AND LOS ANGELES COUNTIES WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY. THE
STRONGEST NORTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR THURSDAY MORNING.
HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED TO FALL INTO THE LOW TEENS TO SINGLE DIGITS
THURSDAY AFTERNOON. AFTER POOR RECOVERIES THURSDAY
