SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


COOLER WEATHER WILL SLOWLY MOVE INLAND BY THE END OF THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. BREEZY WESTERLY WINDS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE MOUNTAINS
AND DESERT MOUNTAIN SLOPES EACH AFTERNOON. WESTERLY GUSTS NEAR 40
MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON IN THE HIGH DESERT AS A
DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH TO THE NORTH. DRY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH NEXT FRIDAY...WITH BELOW NORMAL HIGHS FORECAST BY THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. SEASONAL RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL
CONTINUE.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX


AN UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM COMBINED WITH WEAK ONSHORE FLOW
WILL BRING VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS TO INTERIOR SECTIONS THROUGH
SATURDAY. HUMIDITIES WILL FALL TO BETWEEN 10 AND 20 PERCENT ACROSS
MOST INTERIOR SECTIONS...WITH SINGLE DIGIT READINGS IN THE ANTELOPE
VALLEY AND PORTIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS.

GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE PASSES AND
CANYONS OF SOUTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY FROM THE LATE AFTERNOON
THROUGH NIGHTTIME HOURS THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. WIND GUSTS ARE
EXPECTED TO RANGE BETWEEN 30 AND 40 MPH WITH TONIGHT`S EVENT...MOSTLY
FOCUSED ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE SOUTH COAST. TOMORROW NIGHT`S EVENT
IS EXPECTED TO BE SLIGHTLY STRONGER AND MORE WIDESPREAD. WIND EXPOSED
LOCATIONS AND FOOTHILLS WILL GENERALLY SEE HUMIDITIES IN THE TEENS
WITH TEMPERATURES CLIMBING TO 90 DEGREES OR ABOVE. THE COMBINATION OF
GUSTY SUNDOWNER WINDS...LOW HUMIDITIES...AND WARM TEMPERATURES WILL
BRING ELEVATED FIRE DANGER TO THE SANTA BARBARA SOUTH COAST AND ADJACENT
FOOTHILLS THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...WITH BRIEF PERIODS OF CRITICAL FIRE
WEATHER CONDITIONS EACH NIGHT. GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES
WILL ALSO IMPACT THE INTERSTATE 5 CORRIDOR OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY
MOUNTAINS AND ANTELOPE VALLEY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT.



Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION TODAY WILL
CONTINUE TO BRING WARMER TEMPERATURES AND LOWER HUMIDITIES. SLIGHT
COOLING CONDITIONS WILL ARRIVE OVER THE WEEKEND AS A LOW PRESSURE
TROUGH PASSES TO THE NORTH. GENERALLY LIGHT TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS
TODAY THEN BREEZY TO LOCALLY GUSTY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP THIS
WEEKEND. DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE PERIOD.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION TODAY WILL
GIVE WAY TO A TROUGH BRUSHING THE GREAT BASIN SATURDAY ACCOMPANIED
BY INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS. LIGHTER WINDS...SLIGHTLY COOLER
TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED BEHIND THE EXITING
TROUGH SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


UNSEASONABLY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE DISTRICT
THROUGH SUNDAY. MINIMUM HUMIDITIES WILL GENERALLY FALL INTO THE SINGLE
DIGITS AT LOWER ELEVATIONS AND INTO A 10-20 PERCENT RANGE OVER
MOUNTINGS. OVERNIGHT RECOVERY WILL REMAIN IN A FAIR TO GOOD RANGE.
WEAK SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENTS WILL KEEP WINDS ON THE LIGHT
SIDE...MAINLY FOLLOWING TYPICAL DIURNAL TRENDS.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...
