.DISCUSSION...
Water vapor imagery depicts a wave moving w within a minor 4h theta-
e ridge axis. As such there could be a few showers/storms in the
Davis/GDP mtns today. Otherwise the subtropical ridge will start to
develop nwd today allowing for ely flow in the 7h-5h layer. This
will be the pattern thru mid week and this will have a direct impact
on high temps across the area. Said ely flow will advect cooler 7h
temps wwd signaling thickness cooling. A time series of 7h temps
does show a definitive cooling trend from 13C 00Z/Sun to possibly
as low as 10C by 00Z Wed. Also with the subtropical ridge farther
n the primary theta-e ridge axis will remain w-nw of the CWFA
limiting convection, even in the mtns. Still temps will remain
above normal, but across much of the PB high temps will fail to
reach triple digits.
