SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
A persistent trough along the West Coast will keep our weather fair and dry through next week with variable night and morning low clouds and fog along the coast and into western valley areas. Temperatures will be slightly below mid summer averages, except around the middle of next week when a brief warm-up is expected. Onshore breezes will develop each afternoon and become gusty near the passes and into the deserts.

Highs through the weekend running 2-5 degrees below normal with readings in the 70s at the coast and in the mountains to the upper 80s to lower 90s in the valleys. Monday and Tuesday, max temperatures will be in the upper 90s to 103 across the valleys and lower foothills.

· Minimum RH will generally be in the teens the next few days with fair to good recovery at night.

· Local north winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph will be possible in Santa Barbara County this morning. Another round of sundowner winds are expected tonight with some gusts to 45 mph near Gaviota Pass. Weaker north winds are expected Sunday night. No further sundowner winds expected for Monday and beyond.

· Persistent west winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph through the Kern County Mountains, Antelope Valley, Banning Pass and points eastward in the high desert the next two afternoons.

· No thunderstorms through the next 10 days.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
Dry conditions with periods of gusty winds can be expected through the upcoming week. Winds this afternoon combined with low relative humidity values will result in elevated fire danger across most of the region with critical conditions over west central Nevada.

SPECIAL NOTES:

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
Some holdover fires may still appear today due to the lightning experienced earlier this week. Strong sunshine may allow these new starts to become active during the afternoon hours. Otherwise, expect light IA this weekend. Early next week, ignition components will rise again due to warmer and drier conditions. Dead fuel moisture is well below normal, especially over Central CA while live fuels are still lagging 2-4 weeks behind usual mid-August conditions. Fuel beds dominated by dead fuels will exhibit rapid fire growth during peak heating hours, but a lack of wind next week should allow for local resources to reach containment objectives.

============================================================
THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:
1989: One of the most severe convective outbreaks of record in Southern California began on 8/7 and continued until 8/11, when it climaxed. Over one inch of rain hit Idyllwild on 8/9 and more than a half inch fell on Palm Springs on this day.

1978: The low temperature was 78° in Palomar Mountain, the highest minimum temperature on record. This also occurred on 7/11/2003 and on 6/29/1994.

1963: A heavy thunderstorm struck Lenwood and Barstow. In Lenwood a boy was swept 200 feet by a flash flood before clinging to a telephone pole. The same flash flood carried a loaded trailer 150 feet off the highway.

1941: Thunderstorms hit the eastern Coachella Valley damaging buildings. Water was 30 inches deep in Mecca after more than three inches of rain fell. 1.46 inches fell in Indio.

1935: It was 105° in Santa Ana, the highest temperature on record for August.

1933: A heat wave began on this day and ended on 8/13 in the valleys; temperatures topped 110° for several consecutive days.
==================================================================
TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:
For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

A trough of low pressure located about 100 miles south of Acapulco, Mexico is producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions could still favor some gradual development
during the next couple of days while the system moves west-northwestward just off the southwestern coast of Mexico. After that time, conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation. Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely bring locally heavy rainfall along portions
of the southwestern coast of Mexico during the next couple of days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.

A broad area of low pressure has developed a few hundred miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico and is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some slow development of this system is
possible over the next few days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

A tropical wave located a little less than 1000 miles south- southwest of the Baja California peninsula is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for tropical cyclone formation early next week while the system moves westward or west- northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.
