SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


MONSOONAL MOISTURE HAS BEEN SLOW DECREASING WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS
SINCE MONDAY...BUT HAS BEEN SLOWLY INCREASING IN THE LOWER DESERT
AREAS AND ADJACENT MOUNTAIN SLOPES. THIS MAY BE SUFFICIENT FOR AN
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OVER THE HIGHER MOUNTAINS AND ADJACENT UPPER
DESERT AREAS THIS AFTERNOON. DRIER WEATHER IS THEN EXPECTED FOR
FRIDAY. FOR THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...MONSOONAL MOISTURE
WILL RETURN...POSSIBLY SUFFICIENT FOR THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY
AFTERNOON...AND MORE LIKELY FOR MONDAY INTO TUESDAY WITH CHANCES
CONTINUING THROUGH MID WEEK. OTHERWISE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING
WARMING FOR THE WEEKEND WITH SLIGHT COOLING FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK AS
THE MONSOONAL MOISTURE INCREASES. THE MARINE LAYER WILL KEEP COASTAL
AREAS COOLER.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW AND A DEEPER MARINE LAYER WILL CONTINUE TO
BRING A SLIGHT COOLING TREND TO MOST AREAS TODAY...WITH LITTLE CHANGE
INTO FRIDAY. THE MOUNTAINS...DESERTS...AND FAR INTERIOR VALLEYS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE DRY...WITH MANY LOCATIONS REPORTING HUMIDITIES IN THE TEENS.
THESE SAME AREAS WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO SEE ONSHORE WINDS GUSTING TO
BETWEEN 25 AND 35 MPH EACH AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY...WITH
ISOLATED GUSTS AS HIGH AS 45 MPH IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ANTELOPE
VALLEY. THE COMBINATION OF GUSTY ONSHORE WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES
WILL BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER EACH AFTERNOON OVER INTERIOR AREAS
THROUGH FRIDAY. AS HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST BEGINS TO
BUILD WESTWARD TOWARDS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...A WARMING TREND IS
EXPECTED ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA OVER THE WEEKEND. FROM SUNDAY THROUGH
WEDNESDAY...A SURGE OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO THE
MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THE TIMING AND AREAL
EXTENT OF THIS MOISTURE SURGE IS STILL IN QUESTION...BUT THE GREATEST
THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS AT THIS TIME APPEARS TO BE MONDAY INTO TUESDAY.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

ISOLATED AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED ALONG THE SIERRA CREST THROUGH THURSDAY WHILE THE DISTRICT
REMAINS ON THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF AN AREA OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE. A
DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR MASS WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION FRIDAY AND
REMAIN OVER THE DISTRICT THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ANOTHER INFLUX OF
MONSOONAL MOISTURE IS LIKELY EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH A RENEWED THREAT
OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERT. AN ONSHORE FLOW WILL
SUPPORT GUSTY WINDS IN THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS AND DESERT AND THE
WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY DURING THE NEXT FEW EVENINGS.
TEMPERATURES WILL TREND A BIT LOWER THROUGH FRIDAY THEN WARM TO WELL
ABOVE NORMAL STARTING SUNDAY.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

ABUNDANT MOISTURE WILL COMBINE WITH AN UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE TO GENERATE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS TODAY
ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. DRIER AIR WILL PUSH IN BEHIND THE
DISTURBANCE...LIMITING ANY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES TO PORTIONS OF
MOHAVE COUNTY ARIZONA FOR THE FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY TIME FRAME.
TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO ABOVE NORMAL LEVELS OVER THE WEEKEND DUE
TO THE DRIER AIR.



Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


A GRADUAL DRYING WILL START THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA WITH HIGH HUMIDITIES REMAINING IN PLACE ACROSS ARIZONA.
THE DRYING WILL PUSH EASTWARD THROUGH MOST OF ARIZONA ON FRIDAY WITH
MINIMUM HUMIDITIES DROPPING INTO THE TEENS ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION
FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON. THERE REMAINS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS THE SOUTH-CENTRAL ARIZONA DESERTS TODAY...WITH BETTER CHANCES
ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS. THUNDERSTORMS CHANCES FOR FRIDAY
WILL BE CONFINED TO HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS ONLY.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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