.DISCUSSION...

The lackluster forecast continues with no foreseeable
precipitation in the current 7-day forecast. There has been some
signal in the models outside of our official 7-day forecast
period which shows a possible pattern change and a chance for
precipitation late this month. However, don`t get too excited
given its so far out and models have a hard time past 7 days. Its
something to look forward to during our extended dry period.

Worth discussing is the elevated fire weather potential Wednesday
and Saturday for breezy wind speeds and low relative humidities.
Additionally, temperatures will be above normal for this time of
year as highs look to be in the 50s and 60s for the most part.
Today marks 58 days in a row without measurable precipitation.
December 28th would be 76 days in a row, and this would break the
record of 75 days in a row set back in 1957 which ended on
January 3rd, 1957.

Elevated fire weather conditions are possible Wednesday across
northern parts of the forecast area, and then again on Saturday
across southern parts of the forecast area. Both of these days
20 foot wind speeds will range around 15 to 20 mph with relative
humidities around 13 to 20 percent.
