SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


A TROUGH MOVING THROUGH CENTRAL TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WILL
CONTINUE TO BRING COOLER WEATHER AND NIGHT AND MORNING STRATUS
INTO THE COAST/VALLEY SECTIONS THROUGH SUNDAY. A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS MAY FORM OVER THE MOUNTAINS SATURDAY AFTERNOON DUE
TO A POSSIBLE INCREASE IN MOISTURE AND THE APPROACH OF THE LOW
PRESSURE TROUGH. A WARMING TREND AND SHALLOWER MARINE LAYER IS
EXPECTED FOR MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT
STRENGTHENS. THEN ANOTHER TROUGH MAY BRING COOLER WEATHER WITH A
DEEPER MARINE LAYER AND INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

SIGNIFICANT COOLING WITH HIGHER HUMIDITIES IS
EXPECTED THROUGH SUNDAY AS MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW AND A WEAK BUT
DEEP MARINE LAYER IMPACTS THE REGION. BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED OVER INTERIOR SECTIONS EACH AFTERNOON. COLD AIR ALOFT
WILL BRING A VERY SLIGHT CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM TO
THE MOUNTAINS OF VENTURA AND SANTA BARBARA COUNTIES EACH AFTERNOON
AND EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY. DRYING IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN IS
EXPECTED OVER THE WEEKEND. A GRADUAL WARMING TREND IS EXPECTED
EARLY NEXT WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS AND ONSHORE FLOW WEAKENS.
THIS WILL BRING SOME DRYING TO THE FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS AS THE
MARINE LAYER DEPTH SHRINKS BELOW 1500 FT. THE LATEST COMPUTER
MODELS CONTINUE TO TREND COOLER FOR THE END OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

A WEAK UPPER LOW WILL REMAIN ALONG THE CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA COAST TONIGHT AND SATURDAY...THEN LIFT NORTHEAST
ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND INTO NEVADA BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON. A SLIGHT
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN OVER THE SIERRA
NEVADA THROUGH SUNDAY...WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE ALSO NEAR FRAZIER PARK
IN KERN COUNTY SATURDAY AFTERNOON. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO
REBUILD SUNDAY FOR A GRADUAL WARMING AND DRYING TREND THROUGH
WEDNESDAY.



Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CIRCULATING NEAR THE SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA COAST WILL PULL MOISTURE ACROSS SOUTHERN NEVADA AND
NORTHWEST ARIZONA TODAY LEADING TO SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. THE SYSTEM WILL LIFT AWAY TO THE NORTHEAST BY LATE
SUNDAY FOLLOWED BY DRY CONDITIONS AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


EXPECT SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES TO EXPAND TO THE LOWER
ELEVATIONS TODAY...INCLUDING PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA. BEST
CHANCES REMAIN OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF SOUTH-CENTRAL ARIZONA.
HUMIDITIES AND STORM CHANCES TREND DOWNWARD SUNDAY. ANTICIPATE
SIMILAR WIND PATTERNS TODAY WITH SOMEWHAT STRONGER SOUTHERLY WINDS
OVER THE LOWER COLORADO RIVER VALLEY...LESS SO SUNDAY.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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