SUMMARY OF FWF DISCUSSIONS

Discussion from LAXFWFSGX


HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST WILL BRING A MONSOONAL FLOW ACROSS THE
REGION WITH A THREAT OF ISOLATED TO OCCASIONALLY SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THE MAIN THREAT FOR
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS...EACH
AFTERNOON AND EVENING...BUT THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR NOCTURNAL
THUNDERSTORMS WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS INTO SATURDAY MORNING.
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SEASONALLY WARM...AND HUMIDITY WILL BE
ELEVATED MOST AREAS.


Discussion from LAXFWFLOX

THE RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN SLIGHTLY THIS WEEKEND
LEADING TO A SLIGHT COOLING TREND AND SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITIES BUT
TEMPERATURES WILL STILL REMAIN 4-8 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. SOME
MOISTURE MOVING UP FROM MEXICO WILL BRING A FEW CLOUDS BUT AT THIS
TIME NO THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED EXCEPT FOR A SMALL CHANCE ACROSS
THE EXTREME EASTERN SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAINS SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW WILL BRING A FEW HOURS OF GUSTY WINDS IN THE
ANTELOPE VALLEY AND SURROUNDING FOOTHILLS RESULTING IN AN ELEVATED
FIRE DANGER THERE IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING.


Discussion from SFOFWFHNX

HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST
THROUGH SATURDAY WITH A DRY AIRMASS PREVAILING. A SOUTHEAST TO
SOUTH FLOW ALOFT WILL PREVAIL SUNDAY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK WHICH WILL PROVIDE THE AREA WITH INCREASING MOISTURE AND A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE
SOUTHERN SIERRA NEVADA. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ABOVE SEASONAL
NORMALS THROUGH NEXT WEEK.


Discussion from RNOFWFVEF

MONSOON MOISTURE WILL BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS TO MUCH OF THE AREA THROUGH AT LEAST THE FIRST HALF OF
NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY BE NEAR NORMAL.


Discussion from PHXFWFPSR


VERY WARM...BUT A FEW DEGREES OF COOLING EXPECTED TODAY...AS UPPER
LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS WEAKENING AND SHIFTING FURTHER TO THE
EAST. INCREASING MOISTURE WILL MEAN A GREATER LIKELIHOOD OF AFTERNOON
AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE REGION. THE BIGGEST THREAT WILL
BE IN THE MOUNTAINS EAST OF PHOENIX. WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY OUT OF
THE SOUTHWEST AND LESS THAN 10 MPH...BUT WILL BECOME VARIABLE AND
GUSTY AS OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES FROM STORMS MOVE ACROSS THE AREA. MINIMUM
HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER TEENS TO AROUND 25 PERCENT.
GOOD OVERNIGHT RECOVERY IS EXPECTED.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

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