VALID 211200Z - 271200Z

...COASTAL RANGES AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS OF SRN CA --
D4/WED-D5/THU...
SOME INCREASE IN SFC WINDS MAY OCCUR...AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT
LOCALLY/MODESTLY TIGHTENS TO THE SW OF SFC HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING
OVER PORTIONS OF THE CNTRL GREAT BASIN IN THE WAKE OF A MID-LEVEL
SHORTWAVE TROUGH. RELATIVELY LOW RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED EACH
DAY...AS DOWNSLOPE-FLOW-ENHANCED WARMING/DRYING OCCUR. WITH DRY
FUELS IN PLACE...MARGINALLY/SPOTTY ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
CANNOT BE RULED OUT. HOWEVER...MEDIUM-RANGE MODEL GUIDANCE DOES NOT
INDICATE THAT THE SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL BECOME SUFFICIENTLY
TIGHT TO SUPPORT STRONG WINDS...PREVENTING THE INCLUSION OF
PROBABILISTIC DELINEATIONS.
