SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


INCREASING SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE WILL SPREAD INTO THE REGION TODAY
BRINGING A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS.
PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL BE GREATER ON SATURDAY AS AN UPPER
LEVEL LOW AND A STRONGER SURGE OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE MOVES INTO
THE AREA. FLASH FLOODING IS POSSIBLE DURING THIS TIME. SOME
STORMS WILL DRIFT INTO THE VALLEYS AND COASTAL ZONES. THE THREAT
OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH SUNDAY. THE
MONSOON FLOW WILL DECREASE SUNDAY NIGHT...FOLLOWED BY DRIER
WESTERLY FLOW EARLY NEXT WEEK.

***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS***


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA WILL PERSIST THROUGH FRIDAY THEN GRADUALLY
SHIFT NORTH SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. DRY SOUTHWEST MID AND UPPER
LEVEL WINDS WILL PREVAIL OVER THE AREA THROUGH FRIDAY. THE WINDS
ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST WITH INCREASING MOISTURE
SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. THE BULK OF THE MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN EAST OF THE AREA BUT THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS
NEAR THE VENTURA AND KERN COUNTY BORDER AS WELL AS THE ANTELOPE
VALLEY AND ADJACENT SLOPES OF THE ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST SUNDAY.
OTHERWISE THE MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERT
WILL RANGE FROM THE MIDDLE TEENS TO AROUND 20 PERCENT AND RECOVERY
WILL RANGE FROM 30 TO 40 PERCENT. THE MARINE LAYER WILL REMAIN RELATIVELY
SHALLOW AND PERSIST AROUND 1000 FEET ASL. A WEAK TO MODERATE ONSHORE
PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL PERSIST.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL PROVIDE LITTLE CHANGE IN
CONDITIONS THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SEVERAL
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL AND THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON
THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE CREST OF THE SIERRA. A WEAK DISTURBANCE
WILL MOVE IN FROM THE SOUTH OVER THE WEEKEND AND BRING AN INCREASED
CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS ON SUNDAY...INCLUDING FOR THE KERN COUNTY
DESERT AND THE SIERRA FOOTHILLS. THE THREAT WILL RETURN TO JUST
ALONG THE SIERRA CREST MONDAY AND TUESDAY. GENERALLY LIGHT TERRAIN
DRIVEN WINDS WILL PREVAIL...EXCEPT POSSIBLY GUSTY AND ERRATIC NEAR
ANY THUNDERSTORM.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN THIS
AFTERNOON. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AS
DEEPER MOISTURE AND A POTENT UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVE IN FROM
THE SOUTH.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


INCREASED SOUTHERLY FLOW ALOFT IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY INCREASE THE
AVAILABLE MOISTURE OVER THE REGION THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
THIS WILL BRING DECENT STORM CHANCES...HIGHER HUMIDITIES...AND COOLER
TEMPERATURES. STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING...AND HEAVY
DOWNPOURS CAN BE EXPECTED FROM THE STRONGER STORMS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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