SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM PDT THIS EVENING FOR
STRONG GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY FOR MOUNTAINS OF SAN
BERNARDINO…RIVERSIDE…AND ORANGE COUNTIES…THE INLAND
EMPIRE…AND INLAND ORANGE COUNTY…

…FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH
THURSDAY AFTERNOON FOR STRONG GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY FOR
MOUNTAINS…VALLEYS…AND INLAND ORANGE COUNTY…

Northeast winds will peak this morning with low humidity continuing through the afternoon with critical fire weather conditions through this afternoon for the mountains of San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties, the Inland Empire, and inland Orange County. Onshore flow will return for tonight and Tuesday. A second round off offshore flow will gusty northeast to east winds and very low humidity is expected for late Tuesday night through Thursday for mountains, valleys, and inland Orange County with critical fire weather conditions. For late in the week into next weekend, offshore flow will weaken. Slow cooling will spread inland, winds will be weak, with humidity recovery very slow.

KEY POINTS
• Santa Ana Winds return tonight-Monday; Critical fire weather conditions
• A stronger Santa Ana Wind event is likely Tuesday night-Thursday
• Freezing temperatures likely across the high desert mid week
________________________________________
CHANGES SINCE LAST BRIEFING
Fire Weather Watch cancelled for San Diego County which covered the tonight-Monday period. Winds are not strong enough to warrant a Red Flag for this area for this time.
High Wind Watch was upgraded to a High Wind Warning for the San Bernardino County mountains, portions of the Inland Empire and the Santa Ana mountains for tonight through Monday morning.
Fire Weather Watch issued for all mountains, the inland valleys of San Diego County, the Inland Empire, and inland Orange County for Tuesday night through Thursday.
Freezing temperatures added for the high desert.
North to northeast winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph will surface across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California this morning.

· These offshore winds will decrease this afternoon and become light by the time the sun sets.

· Temperatures will remain 5 to 10 degrees below normal through Wednesday, with upper 40s and 50s across the mountains and mid 60s to mid 70s in the valleys.

· Northeast to east winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph will surface across the mountains and below the canyons and passes of Southern California once again Wednesday and Thursday.

· Winds will decrease significantly Friday through this weekend, but there will still be local northeast to east winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph across the wind prone areas of Southern California.

· A warming trend will occur Thursday through this weekend and temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees above normal by this weekend.

· Minimum humidity will be mainly in the single digits and teens through this weekend

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
Gusty north winds will diminish throughout the day but temperatures will be unseasonably cold. Another round of gusty north winds and low humidity values could bring near critical fire conditions to parts of southern Nevada and northwest Arizona Tuesday. Coldest temperatures of the Fall Season will occur through Thursday before temperatures recovery back to near normal over the weekend.

Key Points:
• Freezing Temps likely across parts of the Mojave Desert each morning through Thursday.
• High temperatures well below normal Today, Wednesday and Thursday
• Diminishing north wind today, however another cold front will usher in another period of gusty winds Tuesday-Wednesday.

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
Strong offshore winds along with single digit humidity will bring a high risk for large fire to Southern California today and then again Wednesday and Thursday. The large fire threat will decrease across Southern California Friday through this weekend, but it will still be elevated as local gusty offshore winds and single digit humidity continue. Extreme fire behavior will be likely on new ignitions in windy areas throughout the week. Fuels will stay critically dry and expect moderate to heavy initial attack activity to continue across the area through this weekend.

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX: TODAY: ORANGE – MODERATE

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.
