COASTAL MOUNTAIN SLOPES AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS AREAS IN RIVERSIDE
AND SAN DIEGO COUNTIES FOR FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY MORNING. WEAKER
WINDS FOR SUNDAY. ONSHORE WINDS MAY RETURN FOR MONDAY INTO EARLY

Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


A STRONG...BUT RATHER DRY...COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE AREA
TONIGHT AND CHRISTMAS MORNING. AT THIS TIME...THE ONLY SHOWERS
EXPECTED WITH THIS FRONT WILL OCCUR ON THE NORTH-FACING SLOPES
TONIGHT AND CHRISTMAS MORNING...WITH SNOW SHOWERS POSSIBLY IMPACTING
THE I-5 THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE. THE BIGGER IMPACT FROM THIS FRONTAL
PASSAGE WILL BE STRONG NORTHWEST TO NORTH WINDS TONIGHT AND CHRISTMAS
DAY. POTENTIALLY DAMAGING GUSTS TO AROUND 65 MPH ARE LIKELY IN THE
LOCAL MOUNTAINS...WITH GUSTS OF 30 TO 50 MPH LIKELY ACROSS MANY VALLEY
AND COASTAL LOCATIONS. THE NORTHERLY WINDS WILL USHER IN A VERY COLD
AIR MASS...AND HIGHS ON CHRISTMAS DAY WILL BE SEVERAL DEGREES BELOW
SEASONAL NORMALS.

FOR THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY...THE FLOW WILL TURN TO THE
NORTHEAST...AND MODERATE NORTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE
AREA. THE COMBINATION OF A COLD AND DRY AIR MASS...ALONG WITH THE
DRYING EFFECTS OF THE OFFSHORE WINDS...WILL RESULT IN LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITY THROUGH THE PERIOD WITH ONLY POOR TO MODERATE OVERNIGHT
RECOVERIES.

ON SUNDAY...THERE WILL BE A BIT OF A LULL WITH RESPECT TO OFFSHORE
WINDS. HOWEVER BY LATE SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...ANOTHER ROUND OF
MODERATE NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS IS POSSIBLE.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A STRONG LOW INLAND TO THE NORTH OF OUR DISTRICT
AND INTO THE GREAT BASIN TONIGHT. A COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH
THIS SYSTEM WILL RAPIDLY PUSH SOUTHWARD THROUGH OUR AREA ON
TONIGHT AND BRING A BRIEF PERIOD OF PRECIPITATION THIS EVENING
ALONG WITH INCREASED WINDS AND COLDER TEMPERATURES FOR CHRISTMAS
DAY. UPPER HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD OFF THE COAST ON FRIDAY
THEN PUSH INLAND OVER THE WEEKEND PROVIDING OUR AREA WITH A RETURN
OF DRY WEATHER AND A SLOW WARMING TREND.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

INCREASING HIGH CLOUDS ARE EXPECTED TODAY IN ADVANCE OF
A WEATHER SYSTEM WHICH WILL BRING STRONG WINDS AND SOME SNOW SHOWERS
TO THE SIERRA...SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN AND MOJAVE DESERT TONIGHT THROUGH
CHRISTMAS DAY.  MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES WILL FOLLOW THIS SYSTEM WITH
COLDER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES LINGERING OVER THE WEEKEND. A COOL
NORTHERLY FLOW PROMISES COOL TEMPERATURES WILL PERSIST NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


GUSTY NORTH WINDS WILL EXPAND THROUGH SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND THE
COLORADO RIVER VALLEY TODAY...WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO 30 MPH. A
SLIGHTLY ELEVATED FIRE DANGER WILL EXIST...THOUGH RELATIVE HUMIDITY
LEVELS WILL ONLY FALL TO AROUND 20 PERCENT LIMITING A GREATER THREAT.
OTHERWISE...A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS WILL AFFECT PARTS OF SOUTHERN GILA
COUNTY THIS AFTERNOON AS A COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH THE REGION. DRY
AND TRANQUIL WEATHER WILL PREVAIL FRIDAY...ALBEIT MUCH COOLER THAN
NORMAL.

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