...SYNOPSIS...
LARGE UPPER TROUGH COVERING THE CONUS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD
WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT EWD AND AMPLIFY WHILE A RIDGE CENTERED OFF THE
S CA COAST BUILDS INTO CNTRL/SRN CA. AT THE SURFACE...RIDGE WILL
TRANSITION SEWD INTO THE FOUR CORNERS AND A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH
ACROSS THE ERN CONUS AND OFF THE ERN SEABOARD.

...SRN CA...
OFFSHORE FLOW THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING IS EXPECTED TO BE
A BIT WEAKER THAN SUNDAY AS THE GRADIENT RELAXES IN RESPONSE TO THE
WEAKENING AND SEWD SHIFT OF THE SURFACE HIGH. HOWEVER...SURFACE HIGH
WILL BEGIN TO STRENGTHEN AGAIN AFTER 00Z/TUE WITH A RESULTANT
INCREASE IN THE OFFSHORE GRADIENT. OFFSHORE WINDS FROM 20 TO 30
MPH...WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS AROUND 45 MPH...ARE ANTICIPATED BY
06Z/TUE...PERSISTING THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD. MODERATE TO POOR
OVERNIGHT RECOVERY IS EXPECTED.

GUSTY OFFSHORE CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY WILL LIKELY HAVE PRECONDITIONED
FUELS ACROSS THE REGION. OVERLAP BETWEEN LOW RH AND STRONG WINDS AND
MORE RECEPTIVE FUELS WILL RESULT IN WIDESPREAD ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE REGION. SOME ISOLATED CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE
POSSIBLE AFTER 06Z/TUE.
