SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE WILL INCREASE ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
THROUGH SUNDAY.  ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE OVER THE
MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS THIS AFTERNOON.  THESE THUNDERSTORMS ARE
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND LOCALIZED WETTING
RAINS.  THE THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INCREASE FOR
SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...WITH NOCTURNAL THUNDERSTORMS
POSSIBLE...EVEN TO THE COAST AS A DISTURBANCE MOVES OVER THE
REGION.  WETTING RAINS WILL BE POSSIBLE.  DRIER CONDITIONS WILL
DEVELOP FOR THE WORK WEEK.

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


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT NORTH SATURDAY THROUGH
SUNDAY. DRY SOUTHWEST MID AND UPPER LEVEL WINDS WILL 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 IN THE ANTELOPE VALLEY
AND ADJACENT SLOPES OF THE ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST SATURDAY. WHILE THE
MOISTURE INCREASES SUNDAY THE THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL EXPAND
AND COVER THE COAST AND COASTAL VALLEYS IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY AS WELL
AS THE VENTURA COUNTY MOUNTAINS. 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 RANGE FROM 1000 TO 1400 FEET ASL. A WEAK
TO MODERATE ONSHORE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL PERSIST.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL ALLOW ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
AND DRY CONDITIONS...EXCEPT FOR SLIGHT CHANCES OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE
SIERRA CREST...TO CONTINUE THROUGH SATURDAY. A MOISTURE INFLUX
WILL BEGIN LATE SATURDAY BRINGING AN INCREASE IN CLOUDS AND AN UPWARD
TREND IN HUMIDITIES. CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO INCREASE ON
SUNDAY FOR THE SIERRA CREST AND FOOTHILLS...AND THE KERN COUNTY
DESERT. THE THREAT WILL RETURN TO JUST ALONG THE SIERRA CREST MONDAY
AND TUESDAY. OTHERWISE...GENERALLY LIGHT TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS WILL
PREVAIL...EXCEPT GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS 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 SATURDAY. THIS WILL BRING
GOOD CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION...WITH
SIGNIFICANT WETTING RAINS POSSIBLE...HIGHER HUMIDITIES...AND COOLER
TEMPERATURES. STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING...AND HEAVY
DOWNPOURS CAN BE EXPECTED FROM THE STRONGER STORMS. SUNDAY WILL SEE
SOMEWHAT LESS SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY AS DRIER AIR BEGINS TO
FILTER IN FROM THE WEST.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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