SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
Stronger onshore flow will bring a modest recovery in humidity for inland areas today. High pressure aloft will bring a warming trend for Thursday through Saturday with weak offshore flow on Friday bringing locally gusty northeast winds to 25 mph near the coastal slopes of the mountains and below passes and canyons. Lowest daytime humidity for inland areas will fall to around 10 percent during the weekend with a slight recovery possible on Monday followed by minor day to day changes into the middle of next week.
The combination of decreasing humidity and locally gusty northeast winds near the coastal mountain slopes on Friday could bring elevated fire weather conditions for those areas.

No precipitation is expected the next two weeks.

· Maximum temperatures will range from the 60s at the coast to the upper 80s in the valleys today. Look for some 90-95 degree readings Friday and Saturday with slightly cooler readings possible by Sunday.

· Minimum RH will drop into the 8-12% range for approximately 6-7 hours each day. Fair recovery at night away from the coast and upper elevations of the Sierras. However, poor recovery will be possible Thursday and Friday night.

· Light offshore winds of 15-25 mph possible Thursday night into Friday with the strongest winds over northern Los Angeles County and Ventura County. Offshore winds under 15 mph may be possible again Friday night.

· Cooler weather may develop early next week.

· No strong offshore wind events expected next 7 days.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
Dry and mild conditions are expected through the weekend and into next week with temperatures running several degrees above average. Winds will generally be light, with periodic north breezes down the Colorado River Valley

SPECIAL NOTES:

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
Ignition components will remain very high each afternoon due to very dry fuels and low daytime relative humidity values. New starts may grow rapidly during peak heating hours where slope and terrain align. The atmosphere will remain mixed over a broad area within 30 miles of the coast from Monterey County to San Diego County Thursday and Friday night, resulting in poor RH recovery. Therefore, any new start Thursday may see a burn window extending into Saturday evening, when higher RH and light onshore flow returns. Other new starts during the next 7 days will see active burning confined largely to the daylight horus. Dead fuel moisture values are at, or very near, record low readings while live fuels are critically dry. There may be moderate levels of IA this week despite a lack of widespread strong winds, mainly due to low relative humidity and extremely low fuel moisture

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX: TODAY: GREY-NO RATING

NO RATING: Sundowner winds are either not expected, or will not contribute to significant
fire activity.

MARGINAL: Upon ignition, fires may grow rapidly.

MODERATE: Upon ignition, fires will grow rapidly and will be difficult to control.

HIGH: Upon ignition, fires will grow very rapidly, will burn intensely, and will be very difficult to control

EXTREME: Upon ignition, fires will have extreme growth, will burn very intensely, and will be uncontrollable.
