...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...Synopsis...
The highly amplified deep-layer trough is forecast to exit the
eastern half of the CONUS throughout the period. To the west,
another shortwave trough will enter the Pacific Northwest, with a
ridge developing over the northern Rockies. At the surface, high
pressure will build into the upper Great Basin, resulting in a
surface pressure gradient that may allow offshore winds of 10-20 mph
and lowered RH to develop briefly across southern CA late Wednesday
night into early Thursday morning. However, recent heavy rainfall in
this region has rendered fuels generally unreceptive to large-fire
potential, and therefore no areas have been highlighted.
