SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


WARM AND DRY WEATHER WILL PERSIST TROUGH FRIDAY INLAND...BEFORE
ONSHORE FLOW INCREASES AND THE MARINE LAYER REBUILDS OVER THE
WEEKEND. RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE TEENS INLAND THIS AFTERNOON...
WILL RECOVER SLIGHTLY ON FRIDAY AND THEN MUCH MORE INTO SUNDAY.
WESTERLY WINDS WILL BECOME STRONG AND GUSTY OVER THE MOUNTAIN
RIDGES...THROUGH THE PASSES...AND INTO THE DESERTS THIS WEEKEND AS
THE HUMIDITY RISES. A SLOW WARMING TREND IS ON TAP EARLY NEXT WEEK
AS THE MARINE LAYER RETREATS BACK TOWARD THE COAST.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A WEAK UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE COMBINED WITH
WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW NEAR THE SURFACE WILL CONTINUE TO BRING WARM AND
DRY CONDITIONS TO INLAND AREAS THROUGH FRIDAY. THE DRIEST AIR WILL
BE FOCUSED ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...WITH
AREAS OF SINGLE DIGIT HUMIDITIES TODAY...THEN RANGING BETWEEN 10 AND
20 PERCENT ON FRIDAY. MEANWHILE...SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL BEGIN TO INCREASE
ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON...THEN STRENGTHEN FURTHER ON FRIDAY
WHEN GUSTS UP TO 35 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE. THE COMBINATION OF LOW HUMIDITIES
COMBINED WITH INCREASING SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER
TO THE MOUNTAINS...WITH BRIEF PERIODS OF CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN FRIDAY. GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL
CONTINUE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY...HOWEVER HUMIDITIES WILL GRADUALLY
RISE THROUGH THAT PERIOD.

A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MOVE OVER THE AREA SATURDAY WHEN THERE IS A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF LIGHT SHOWERS NORTH OF SANTA BARBARA...ALONG WITH
A COOLING TREND EVERYWHERE. GUSTY NORTHERLY WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
IMPACT THE MOUNTAINS AND SANTA BARBARA SOUTH COAST SATURDAY NIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY. AN OFFSHORE FLOW PATTERN IS POSSIBLE BY THE MIDDLE
OF NEXT WEEK.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH FRIDAY
UNDER A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE. A WEATHER DISTURBANCE WILL APPROACH
BY SATURDAY AND BRING COOLER AND MORE MOIST CONDITIONS ALONG WITH A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION...MAINLY OVER YOSEMITE PARK AND INTO
MERCED COUNTY. BREEZY TO LOCALLY WINDY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP
SATURDAY AND CONTINUE AT TIMES THROUGH MONDAY.





Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST WILL RESULT IN
UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES CONTINUING THROUGH SATURDAY. A TROUGH
APPROACHING FROM THE WEST WILL BRING INCREASING WINDS SATURDAY AND
COOLER WEATHER TO THE AREA SUNDAY THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


STRONG HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE AND ALOFT WILL BRING WELL-ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPERATURES...MAINLY CLEAR SKIES...AND LIGHT WINDS TO THE
REGION THROUGH SATURDAY. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL RANGE FROM 15 TO
25 PERCENT AT LOWER ELEVATIONS EACH DAY...AND 25 TO 35 PERCENT AT
HIGHER ELEVATIONS...WITH GOOD TO EXCELLENT OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES.

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