SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD BACK ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH THE
WEEKEND...WITH WARMER CONDITIONS PREVAILING.  HOWEVER...SOME
SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL START TO SPREAD BACK
ACROSS THE REGION ON SUNDAY...WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS.
THERE IS A BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH WETTING
RAINS FOR MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


NO MAJOR CHANGES EXPECTED ACROSS SOUTHWEST CALIFORNIA TODAY. AN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY BUILD OVER THE AREA TODAY
INTO THE WEEKEND...CAUSING THE MARINE LAYER TO SHRINK IN DEPTH
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL BRING DECREASING NIGHTTIME LOW
CLOUDS AND FOG TO THE COAST AND VALLEYS THROUGH SUNDAY...ALONG
WITH A WARMING AND DRYING TREND FOR MOST AREAS. EXPECT TO SEE MANY
LOCATIONS REPORTING HUMIDITIES IN THE TEENS TODAY...WITH ONSHORE
WINDS GUSTING TO BETWEEN 25 TO 35 MPH THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
THERE WILL BE ISOLATED GUSTS UP TO 45 MPH IN THE ANTELOPE VALLEY
FOOTHILLS LATER TODAY. THE COMBINATION OF GUSTY ONSHORE WINDS
AND LOW HUMIDITIES WILL BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER TO INTERIOR
AREAS TODAY.

SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY A SURGE OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE IS
EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS OF SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA. INITIALLY...A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
CONFINED TO THE EASTERN SAN GABRIELS ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON...THEN
EXPANDING WESTWARD TO INCLUDE THE VENTURA COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND
ANTELOPE VALLEY FROM MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY. THE BEST CHANCE FOR
CONVECTION WILL BE TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING...WHEN SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE LOS ANGELES AND VENTURA
MOUNTAINS AND DESERT.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A DRY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL BE OVER THE
DISTRICT THIS WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL TREND UPWARD TO WELL ABOVE
NORMAL BY SUNDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL TREND DOWNWARD AND NO
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA. AN INFLUX OF
TROPICAL MOISTURE IS EXPECTED MONDAY WITH A RENEWED THREAT OF
THUNDERSTORMS OVER MOUNTAIN AND DESERT AREAS THOUGH FOR MUCH OF NEXT
WEEK.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH DRIER AIR INTO THE
AREA WITH LINGERING THUNDERSTORM CHANCES CONFINED TO NORTHERN
PORTIONS OF LINCOLN AND MOHAVE COUNTIES TODAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL
DEVELOP OVER THE AREA DURING THE WEEKEND LEADING TO MAINLY DRY
CONDITIONS AND WARMING TEMPERATURES. MONSOON MOISTURE MAY RETURN TO
MOHAVE COUNTY SUNDAY AND IS EXPECTED TO SPREAD ACROSS THE REST OF
THE AREA FOR THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.



Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


DRIER CONDITIONS OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS BUT LOW WINDS SO NOT MUCH
FIRE WEATHER THREAT. SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY EXPECTED
OVER HIGHER TERRAIN BUT OTHERWISE SHOULD REMAIN UNEVENTFUL. AFTERNOON
HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL FALL INTO THE TEENS WITH ONLY FAIR OVERNIGHT
RECOVERY.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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