.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will continue to bring above normal
daytime temperatures, cold night, relatively light winds and very
dry conditions through much of this week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Not much changes over the next several days as a high
amplitude ridge remains over the western United States. The ridge
position will move a bit westward later this week, which may allow
for energy moving over the ridge to retrograde into the southwestern
states, too early to tell.

Above normal temperatures, cold nights, light easterly winds and a
very dry boundary layer will continue until further notice.

Aside from a tweak to the overnight low temperature grid, no updates
needed tonight.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 06Z package...Expect VFR conditions through
the 24 hour period. Sfc winds light and variable or easterly at
5-10kts. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...Little change in the day to day weather through
Wednesday. Max temperatures will be 8 to 15 degrees above normal. A
stable airmass and very light east to northeast mixing layer winds
combine to produce poor or marginal ventilation around the clock.

Thursday through Saturday...Well above normal max temperatures and
very dry conditions persist through the period.winds Wednesday and
Thursday, becoming variable or westerly Friday.

&&
