...DISCUSSION FROM RNOFWFVEF...

A TROUGH MOVING DOWN FROM SOUTHWEST CANADA WILL PRODUCE INCREASING
SOUTHWEST WINDS ALONG WITH HOT AND DRY  CONDITIONS LEADING TO
ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ACROSS MUCH OF  THE REGION TODAY AND
THURSDAY, BUT WIND SPEEDS ARE EXPECTED TO  REMAIN BELOW CRITICAL
THRESHOLDS. A WEAK DISTURBANCE AND MID LEVEL  MOISTURE MAY PRODUCE
ISOLATED HIGH BASED THUNDERSTORMS THIS  AFTERNOON AND EVENING ACROSS
THE SOUTHERN SIERRA AND SOUTHERN GREAT  BASIN.


...DISCUSSION FROM LAXFWFSGX...


HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL DRIFT EAST AND LOW PRESSURE OVER THE
PACIFIC WILL MOVE INLAND THROUGH FRIDAY. THE MARINE LAYER WILL
GRADUALLY DEEPEN WITH COOLING AND HIGHER HUMIDITIES SPREADING
INLAND. STRONGER ONSHORE FLOW WILL BRING STRONG GUSTY WESTERLY WINDS
IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY.
THESE WINDS WILL COMBINE WITH HUMIDITY IN SINGLE DIGITS FOR A SHORT
TIME THIS AFTERNOON AND THURSDAY AFTERNOON. LIGHT SHOWERS EXPECTED
THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY MORNING FROM THE MOUNTAINS WESTWARD. FOR
THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND...HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT NEAR THE  WEST COAST WILL
BRING AN INLAND WARMING TREND WITH THE MARINE  LAYER AND WEAK
ONSHORE FLOW KEEPING COASTAL AREAS COOLER WITH  HIGHER HUMIDITIES.


...DISCUSSION FROM PHXFWFPSR...


ABOVE-NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE ONCE AGAIN EXPECTED ON WEDNESDAY
AREA- WIDE, BEFORE A MINOR COOLING TREND OCCURS ON THURSDAY.  LOW
PRESSURE MOVING INTO THE GREAT BASIN TO INCREASE THE WINDS ACROSS
THE REGION ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AFTERNOONS/EVENINGS.  SUSTAINED
WIND SPEEDS OF 10-20 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 30 MPH WILL BE  POSSIBLE EACH
DAY. THESE WINDS, COMBINED WITH HUMIDITIES IN THE SINGLE DIGITS WILL
RESULT IN ELEVATED FIRE DANGER LEVELS,  ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHERN GILA COUNTY.
