SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HOT AND DRY TODAY WITH WEAK ONSHORE FLOW. HUMIDITY WILL INCREASE
FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND AS MONSOON MOISTURE MOVES IN. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE
OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN MOUNTAINS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...BUT WETTING
RAINS ARE NOT EXPECTED. CONTINUED VERY WARM AND DRIER WITH A SHALLOW MARINE
LAYER NEXT WEEK AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE
TO BUILD OVER THE AREA THROUGH MONDAY. THURSDAY IS EXPECTED TO
BE THE WARMEST DAY THROUGH THE PERIOD AND TEMPERATURES WILL
LIKELY BE 5 TO 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. TEMPERATURES WILL THEN
RANGE 3 TO 7 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY. THE
MARINE LAYER WILL RANGE FROM 1300 FEET ASL ALONG THE CENTRAL COAST
TO 1000 FEET ASL OR LESS SOUTH OF POINT TONIGHT THEN WILL DEEPEN
SLIGHTLY FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL PERSIST THROUGH
THE PERIOD. GUSTY NORTH AND NORTHWEST WINDS ARE EXPECTED WEST OF
GOLETA ALONG THE SOUTH COAST OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY THIS EVENING.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A DRY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL PREVAIL OVER
THE REGION THROUGH THURSDAY. WHILE A FEW CLOUDS WILL BE
OBSERVED...THE PATTERN WILL REMAIN DRY WITH MINIMAL CONVECTIVE
POTENTIAL. LOWER HUMIDITIES AND MUCH WARMER WEATHER IS LIKELY
TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS TO THE AREA.
SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW ALOFT IS EXPECTED TO BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA CREST BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.
WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE DIURNAL AND TERRAIN INFLUENCED THROUGH
THE PERIOD.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL LEAD TO SLIGHT CHANCES OF
THUNDERSTORMS OVER NORTHWEST ARIZONA EACH DAY THROUGH FRIDAY. IT
WILL BE DRY ELSEWHERE WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES RUNNING ABOUT FIVE
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. MOISTURE WILL EVENTUALLY SPREAD NORTHWEST INTO
THE MOJAVE DESERT AND SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN OVER THE WEEKEND FOR AN
INCREASING CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


STRONG HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP VERY WARM TEMPERATURES IN
PLACE OVER THE REGION...WITH TEMPERATURES NEAR RECORD EXPECTED ONCE
AGAIN TODAY. SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED FRIDAY ON INTO
THE WEEKEND. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE AS GREAT
TODAY AS ON WEDNESDAY...THOUGH ISOLATED STORMS COULD
DEVELOP...ESPECIALLY ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST MARICOPA AND
EASTERN YUMA COUNTY. HUMIDITY READINGS WILL DROP INTO THE LOW
TEENS BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON...WITH MODERATE TO GOOD RECOVERY EXPECTED
TONIGHT. WINDS THROUGH TODAY WILL GENERALLY REMAIN LIGHT OUT OF THE
SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST...THOUGH SOME AFTERNOON GUSTINESS IS
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE LOWER COLORADO RIVER VALLEY.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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