SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


THE EXCEEDINGLY DRY AND WARM WEATHER WILL BE ABATING THROUGH THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND AS THE OFFSHORE FLOW TURNS BACK ONSHORE AND RELATIVE
HUMIDITY BEGINS TO CLIMB. THERE WILL BE SOME RECOVERY ALONG THE
COASTAL STRIP ON FRIDAY...SPREADING FARTHER INLAND EACH DAY THROUGH
SUNDAY. THE DAYS WILL BE COOLER AS WELL. A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER
THE PACIFIC IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH THE COAST AND MOVE INLAND
SOMETIME DURING THE EARLY TO MIDDLE PART OF NEXT WEEK. THIS SHOULD
MAINTAIN COOLER WEATHER AND HIGHER HUMIDITY ALONG WITH THE
POSSIBILTY OF WETTING RAINS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


LOCALLY BREEZY NORTHEASTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE INTO EARLY
THIS AFTERNOON...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 MPH
SUSTAINED AND GUSTS TO AROUND 25 MPH. WIDESPREAD HUMIDITIES UNDER
10 PERCENT WILL CONTINUE AS WELL...WITH NEARLY NO RECOVERIES IN
MOST MOUNTAINS. RED FLAG CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED...BUT
ELEVATED FIRE CONCERNS WILL PERSIST WITH THE WINDS AND DRY AIR.

DESPITE COOLING CONDITIONS AND A RETURN OF ONSHORE FLOW ON FRIDAY
AND SATURDAY...VERY DRY AIR WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA. MOUNTAIN
AND INLAND VALLEY AREAS WILL SEE HUMIDITIES WELL UNDER 10 PERCENT
WITH NO OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES. MEANWHILE MODERATE SOUTHWEST FLOW
ALOFT AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING GUSTY WINDS
AND CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS TO THE MOUNTAINS AND
INTERIOR VALLEYS. OF MOST CONCERN ARE THE HIGHER MOUNTAINS ON
SATURDAY WHEN MARGINAL RED FLAG CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED.

A SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY IMPACT THE AREA SOMETIME
EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH MODERATE TO LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...POSSIBLE
THUNDERSTORMS...AND GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS. THE EXACT TIMING IS
VERY TROUBLESOME AT THIS POINT...BUT CURRENT PROJECTIONS HIGHLIGHT
THE LATE MONDAY AND TUESDAY TIME PERIOD.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ALONG THE WEST COAST WILL
COMBINE WITH AN OFFSHORE FLOW TO MAINTAIN A WARM AND DRY AIRMASS
OVER THE DISTRICT THROUGH FRIDAY. A COOLING TREND AND INCREASING
HUMIDITY WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE WEEKEND AS TWO PACIFIC STORM
SYSTEMS CROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. A STRONGER STORM WILL BRING
INCREASED WINDS AND BETTER CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE
DISTRICT ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AGAIN TODAY LEADING
TO A CONTINUATION OF ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT WINDS. HIGH
CLOUDS WILL INCREASE DURING THE DAY AS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
APPROACHES THE COAST. HIGH PRESSURE WILL WEAKEN FRIDAY...BUT
TEMPERATURES ARE STILL EXPECTED TO REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL. WE WILL
START TO SEE AN INCREASE IN SOUTHWEST WINDS FRIDAY AFTERNOON OVER
PORTIONS OF SAN BERNARDINO...CLARK AND MOHAVE COUNTIES.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT WEATHER FEATURE ACROSS THE
SOUTHWEST THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL RESULT IN
VERY LIGHT DIURNALLY DRIVEN WINDS ALONG WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES.
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND LOW DEWPOINTS ARE ALSO EXPECTED.
HUMIDITIES WILL FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS EACH AFTERNOON FOLLOWED
BY FAIR OVERNIGHT RECOVERY.

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