Preparedness Level (PL 3) SYNOP:

Offshore winds expected later this week***

***Dry and warm Friday into the weekend***

The cutoff low pressure area which brought cool weather to the region is lifting northeastward which will be replaced by high pressure aloft and offshore pressure gradients. This will lead to a strong warming trend through Saturday. Today, highs will be 10-15 degrees warmer across the valleys and lower foothills with 80s common across Southern California. By Friday and Saturday, highs will be close to the 100 degree mark over much of interior Southern California below 3,000 feet. Minimum RH will fall into the 7-12% range by Friday afternoon with poor RH recovery expected Friday night. Northeast winds of 15-25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will be possible through the passes and canyons of Southern California. At this time, the strongest winds look to occur over Ventura and Northern Los Angeles County on Friday. The offshore winds will likely continue into Saturday morning, but wind speeds should be a bit weaker. Onshore flow should bring cooler weather Sunday into Monday. Warmer weather looks to return next Tuesday along with light offshore flow. No precipitation is expected through the period.

 NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)

Marginal fire weather concerns will decrease today as winds relax across the area, with breezes increasingly confined to the Great Basin and Colorado River Valley. Afternoon humidities  continue to decrease through the week, with more gusty winds possible for the area Friday and early next week, especially for the Colorado River Valley.

 

SPECIAL NOTES: N/A

 

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:

Large fire potential will climb to elevated levels across the foothill and valley areas of Southern California Friday. Gusty winds, very warm temperatures and low RH will allow for extreme rates of spread in the passes Friday. Active burning may continue well into Friday night as RH recovery will be non-existent over much of Southern California. Additionally, although winds will be light over the central part of the state, very warm temperatures and low RH is also expected over interior portions of Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties. All of these areas will see very high ignition components and fire spread will be aggressive, even in non-windy areas. Dead fuel moisture is below normal over much of the southern part of the state and live fuels are critically dry over some areas away from the coast. Large fire potential will drop Sunday and Monday in response to the cooler weather, but shifting winds may cause any ongoing fires to show erratic behavior as sea-breeze conditions return. Moderate IA and resource demand is likely Friday into the weekend.

For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

 

An area of low pressure located just south of the Gulf of

Tehuantepec is continuing to produce disorganized showers and

thunderstorms. Satellite imagery indicates that the low-level

circulation associated with this system has become better defined

during the day today. Although the environment is not expected to

support significant development for the next few days, only a small

increase in the organization of shower and thunderstorm activity

would result in the formation of a tropical depression while the

system moves slowly toward the west or west-northwest.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent.
