DISCUSSION...

Not many changes to the current forecast, as a dry forecast under
upper level ridging continues.  CAA overnight from yesterday`s cold
front has resulted in a slow start to warming this afternoon,
w/highs expected to top out several degrees below normal.  However,
as the west coast ridge continues building in, a gradual warm-up is
still on tap thru Thursday, when it`ll feel more like early April
than February.  Late Thursday afternoon, the next (dry) cold front
is due into the area, w/models coming in w/post-frontal temps a
little cooler than in the past few runs.  However, temps will still
stay above normal.  A secondary (dry) front is advertized for Monday
to round out the extended.

Again, no rain thru the extended, w/the latest ECMWF coming in bone
dry again.  Critical fire wx concerns remain minimal, as well.
