...DISCUSSION FROM RNOFWFVEF...

ON SATURDAY, BREEZY CONDITIONS COMBINED WITH LOW AFTERNOON RH`S WILL
FAVOR SOME LOCALIZED RED FLAG CONDITIONS BUT COVERAGE DOESN`T APPEAR
WIDESPREAD AT THE MOMENT. ON SUNDAY...WINDS WILL INCREASE FURTHER
AND FAVOR A PERIOD OF CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AND WIDESPREAD RED FLAG
CONDITIONS SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY EVENING. EVEN THOUGH TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO PLUMMET MONDAY, LOCALIZED RED FLAG CONDITIONS COULD
POTENTIAL CONTINUE UNDER A DRY NORTHWEST FLOW. THE FIRST DUSTING OF
SNOW IS POSSIBLE ABOVE 8000 FEET AS A COLD UPPER LOW MOVES THROUGH
THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. IMPROVING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
TUESDAY-THURSDAY OF NEXT WEEK UNDER A DRY WEST-NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT.


...DISCUSSION FROM LAXFWFSGX...


A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS REMAINS FOR THIS AFTERNOON OVER THE
MOUNTAINS. OTHERWISE, NO RAIN IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE ABOVE AVERAGE BUT WILL COOL DRASTICALLY
BY SUNDAY AND MONDAY AS STRONGER ONSHORE FLOW DEVELOPS AND THE
MARINE LAYER DEEPENS DUE TO A TROUGH MOVING IN FROM THE PACIFIC.
STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY
AS WELL.
