SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL CONTINUE ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
TODAY...FOLLOWED BY SLIGHTLY COOLER CONDITIONS OVER THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. A DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT NEXT WEEK WILL HOLD OFF ANY
MONSOON ACTIVITY AND KEEP TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL. LOCALLY GUSTY
WESTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE LATE EACH DAY AND OVERNIGHT IN THE
DESERTS AND THROUGH THE PASSES...OTHERWISE WINDS WILL BE LIGHT WITH
SEASONAL HUMIDITY.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


AN UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM COMBINED WITH WEAKER ONSHORE FLOW
WILL BRING VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS TO INTERIOR SECTIONS THROUGH
SATURDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL FALL TO BETWEEN 10 AND 20 PERCENT ACROSS
MOST INTERIOR SECTIONS...WITH SINGLE DIGIT READINGS IN THE ANTELOPE
VALLEY.

GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE PASSES AND
CANYONS OF SOUTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FROM THE LATE AFTERNOON
THROUGH NIGHTTIME HOURS BEGINNING TONIGHT AND PERSISTING THROUGH
SATURDAY NIGHT. TONIGHT`S EVENT CONTINUES TO DEVELOP AND IT WILL
MOSTLY BE FOCUSED ACROSS THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE SANTA BARBARA
SOUTH COAST...WITH GUSTS TO BETWEEN 35 AND 45 MPH. THE EVENTS ON
FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO BE SLIGHTLY STRONGER
AND MORE WIDESPREAD WITH GUSTS IN THE 40 TO 45 MPH RANGE. LOCAL
GUSTS UP TO 50 MPH CANNOT RULED OUT THIS TIME. WIND EXPOSED
LOCATIONS AND FOOTHILLS WILL GENERALLY SEE HUMIDITIES BETWEEN 10 AND
20 PERCENT...BUT COULD BRIEFLY FALL INTO SINGLE DIGITS TONIGHT. IN
ADDITION...OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN NEAR 80 IN THE
FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS EACH NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. THE
COMBINATION OF GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES WILL LIKELY
BRING BRIEF PERIODS OF CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS TO THE SANTA
BARBARA SOUTH COAST AND FOOTHILLS EACH EVENING...HOWEVER DURATIONS
ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE LONG ENOUGH TO WARRANT A RED FLAG WARNING AT
THIS TIME. GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES WILL ALSO IMPACT
THE INTERSTATE 5 CORRIDOR OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MOUNTAINS ON
FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE REGION
AND BRING SLIGHTLY WARMER TEMPERATURES AND LOWER HUMIDITIES THROUGH
THE END OF THE WEEK. SLIGHT COOLING WILL ARRIVE OVER THE WEEKEND
AS A LOW PRESSURE TROUGH PASSES TO THE NORTH. GENERALLY LIGHT AND
TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS WILL OCCUR THROUGH FRIDAY...THEN BREEZY TO
LOCALLY GUSTY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP THIS WEEKEND. DRY CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE PERIOD.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION TODAY WILL
GIVE WAY TO A TROUGH BRUSHING THE GREAT BASIN SATURDAY ACCOMPANIED
BY INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS. LIGHTER WINDS...SLIGHTLY COOLER
TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED BEHIND THE EXITING
TROUGH SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


UNSEASONABLY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE DISTRICT
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. MINIMUM HUMIDITIES WILL GENERALLY FALL INTO THE
SINGLE DIGITS AT LOWER ELEVATIONS AND INTO A 10-20 PERCENT RANGE OVER
MOUNTINGS. OVERNIGHT RECOVERY WILL REMAIN IN A FAIR TO GOOD RANGE.
WINDS WILL STAY UNUSUALLY LIGHT STRICTLY FOLLOWING A DAILY
DRAINAGE/UPSLOPE CYCLE...THOUGH WITH LIMITED AFTERNOON GUSTS.

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