SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE EAST AND TRACK NEAR
THE MEXICO BORDER TODAY...REACHING CENTRAL ARIZONA FRIDAY MORNING.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP BY EARLY AFTERNOON ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS
OF SAN DIEGO...RIVERSIDE AND SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES AND POSSIBLY
INTO THE DESERTS. DRIER AND WARMER CONDITIONS WILL RETURN FRIDAY
AND LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. GUSTY WEST
WINDS MAY OCCUR FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND IN THE DESERTS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LINGER OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA THROUGH
EARLY FRIDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES
AND A DEEP MARINE LAYER PUSHING INTO THE MOUNTAINS WITH HIGHER
HUMIDITIES BELOW 4000 FT. UNSTABLE AIR ABOVE THE MARINE LAYER WILL
ALLOW FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM IN THE MOUNTAINS
AND ANTELOPE VALLEY THROUGH THURSDAY. IF THUNDERSTORMS FORM...DRY
LIGHTNING WILL BE A CONCERN ALONG WITH GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS. A
DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR MASS WILL MOVE IN FRIDAY AND LAST THROUGH
THE WEEKEND WITH VIRTUALLY NO CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.
TEMPS NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW SEASONAL NORMS. A WARMING TREND IS
EXPECTED BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL LINGER OVER
MOUNTAIN AND DESERT AREAS INTO THE EVENING AS AN UPPER LEVEL
LOW MOVES INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. A DRIER WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT
WILL LEAD TO DRY CONDITIONS THROUGH FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL
WARM TO NEAR SEASONAL LEVEL WITH GRADUALLY DECREASING HUMIDITIES.
WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT AND TERRAIN DRIVEN ON THURSDAY.
A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ON
FRIDAY BRINGING STRONGER ONSHORE WINDS.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM NEAR SAN DIEGO WILL MOVE TOWARD
ARIZONA LEADING TO INCREASING THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE OVER SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...SOUTHERN NEVADA AND NORTHWEST ARIZONA TODAY. LINGERING
STORMS MAY CONTINUE OVER NORTHWEST ARIZONA EARLY IN THE WEEKEND THEN
DRY CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE ENTIRE REGION THROUGH THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING INTO THE REGION TODAY WILL LEAD TO HIGHER
HUMIDITIES ALONG WITH BROADER AREAL COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL LEAD TO ERRATIC WIND PATTERNS DURING THE
COURSE OF THE DAY. AS THE SYSTEM EXITS FRIDAY...HUMIDITIES WILL
DECREASE AND PRECIPITATION CHANCES DECREASE DRAMATICALLY. WINDS WILL
FAVOR SOUTHWEST AND WEST DIRECTIONS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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