.DISCUSSION...Warming temperatures, decreasing humidity, and
persistent gusty offshore winds are expected over the next two
days. Northeasterly offshore winds will begin to increase at high
elevations overnight tonight, reach peak levels mid to late
Tuesday morning, and decrease slightly Tuesday afternoon. While
peak winds are expected Tuesday morning, winds will remain
somewhat gusty and offshore along ridgelines and upper slopes all
the way through Wednesday morning. Humidity will also remain
relatively low, with afternoon minimums generally falling into the
20 percent range both Tuesday and Wednesday, and overnight
recoveries only slightly better. Some of the windier and more
exposed ridges will likely see poor overnight recoveries.

While winds will decrease relatively abruptly through the day
Wednesday, temperatures will continue to warm. A gradual cooling
trend is expected Thursday and Friday as a weak cold front will
pass through the region.
