Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0203 AM CST Thu Jan 24 2019

Valid 251200Z - 261200Z


Broad cyclonic flow, with a few embedded shortwave troughs
traversing the central/western CONUS, will dominate the upper-level
pattern during the Day 2/Friday period. At the surface, high
pressure across the central CONUS will propagate into the southeast
states and weaken, while a second area of high pressure intensifies
across the Great Basin throughout Day 2. In association with the
building high in the west, a relatively strong pressure gradient,
with associated offshore flow, will persist across California.

...Southern California...
The aforementioned pressure gradient and associated offshore flow
will strengthen throughout the afternoon, with widespread 20+ mph
sustained northeasterly winds, 15-20% RH, and 60-65 F temperatures
expected along the San Gabriel to Laguna mountain ranges. Stronger
wind gusts may be expected in terrain favoring locations, where
channeled flow will occur. While surface atmospheric conditions will
support at least an elevated threat for fire spread, fuels still
appear too marginal for a delineation at this time, though
atmospheric conditions will certainly support fire spread potential
where at least patchy fine fuels can become dry.
