.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures remain hot with low humidities still in place. Deep
mixing this afternoon will allow some gusty winds to reach the
surface, roughly 20 to 25 mph at times. Winds will be from the
southwest and become downslope/downvalley from about midnight
onwards. Tomorrow, some clouds will move in which will keep the
stronger winds aloft so do not anticipate gusty winds at the
surface. A few are possible but not as widespread as seen today.
Temperatures will be a bit cooler as well.
