SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MOVING INLAND THROUGH THE WEST WILL BRING
STRONGER ONSHORE FLOW THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WITH CONTINUED BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES...GUSTY WEST WINDS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS
DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE EVENING HOURS...AND NIGHT AND
MORNING STRATUS AND FOG INTO THE WESTERN VALLEYS. INCREASING HIGH
PRESSURE ALOFT WILL LIKELY BRING WARMING NEXT TUESDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY...WITH WEAKER ONSHORE FLOW...AND SHALLOWER NIGHT AND
MORNING STRATUS AND FOG MAINLY ALONG THE COAST.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

LOW PRESSURE HAS MOVED EAST WHILE HIGH PRESSURE STARTS
TO BUILD FROM THE WEST. THIS HAS SQUASHED THE MARINE LAYER,
CONFINING IT MOSTLY TO COASTAL ZONES. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM A FEW
DEGREES ACROSS FAR INLAND AREAS TODAY WHILE COAST AND COASTAL VALLEY
AREAS REMAIN ABOUT THE SAME. SLIGHTLY LOWER HUMIDITIES ACROSS INLAND
AREAS AS WELL. NO THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TODAY AS MONSOON
MOISTURE HAS MOVED EAST AND THE AIR MASS IS MUCH MORE STABLE. SLIGHT
COOLING IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND KEEPING TEMPS A FEW DEGREES BELOW
SEASONAL NORMS. A WARMING TREND IS EXPECTED BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE EXPANDS FROM THE SOUTHEAST.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A DRY NORTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL RESIDE OVER THE
DISTRICT THROUGH THE WEEKEND AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TRACKS FROM
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO THE GREAT BASIN. INCREASED ONSHORE FLOW
IN THE LOW LEVELS WILL SUPPORT GUSTY WINDS THROUGH AND BELOW THE
MOUNTAIN PASSES ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND IN
THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND DESERT THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
TEMPERATURES WILL TREND COOLER ON SATURDAY WITH LITTLE CHANGE
SUNDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL CHANGE LITTLE FROM DAY TO DAY OVER THE
HIGHER TERRAIN BUT INCREASE SLIGHTLY IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY.
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD BACK INTO THE REGION NEXT WEEK FOR
WARMER TEMPERATURES AND LOWER HUMIDITIES.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A LOW OVER SOUTHWEST ARIZONA WILL CONTINUE TOWARD THE
FOUR CORNERS REGION TODAY. A FEW LINGERING STORMS MAY OCCUR OVER
NORTHWEST ARIZONA AND NORTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY. A BROAD AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE BRUSHING NORTHERN NEVADA WILL LEAD TO DRY CONDITIONS WITH
TEMPERATURES A LITTLE BELOW NORMAL ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION THROUGH
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. WINDS WILL ALSO INCREASE TODAY ACROSS THE
WESTERN MOJAVE DESERT AND SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN WITH GUSTS LOCALLY UP
TO 35 MPH WITH MINIMUM HUMIDITY VALUES LOWERING TO AROUND 15
PERCENT.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


THUNDERSTORM CHANCES DECREASE TONIGHT AND SATURDAY AS DRIER AIR
MOVES INTO THE AREA. THERE WILL STILL BE A CHANCE OF AFTERNOON
STORMS IN THE MOUNTAINS EAST OF PHOENIX THIS WEEKEND. AFTERNOON
HUMIDITIES WILL DROP INTO THE 20-30 PERCENT RANGE WITH GOOD OVERNIGHT
RECOVERIES EXPECTED TODAY INTO THE WEEKEND.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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