.DISCUSSION...Skies will gradually clear overnight as an upper
level disturbance responsible for earlier showers and thunderstorms
slowly lifts north into northern California/Nevada Sunday. Behind this
disturbance models shows drier and more stable air spreading over the
southern Sierra Sunday for less coverage of thunderstorms Sunday
afternoon. Less confident in the wind forecast as models indicate
several different outcomes. More of the models support a southeast wind
developing Sunday before shifting to the west or northwest direction
Sunday evening. Elevated fire weather concerns will exist Monday
afternoon as stronger westerly or downvalley winds develop with gusts
up to 40 mph possible.
