   ENTRENCHED IN THE LAKES REGION IN THE WAKE OF THE DEPARTING
   CYCLONE...SEASONABLE CONDITIONS WILL EXIST AS SURFACE RIDGING

   SOME FIRE WX CONCERN WILL BE IN PARTS OF SRN CA AS BOTH MID LVL AND
   SFC RIDGING WILL YIELD A WEAK SANTA ANA SETUP. ETA 24-48 HOUR
   CHANGE FIELDS INDICATE A 5 DEGREE WARMING AS WELL AS A 10-20
   PERCENT DECREASE IN RH VALUES FROM SUNDAY READINGS.
   HOWEVER...DESPITE MODEL INDICATIONS OF A MILD SANTA ANA
   SETUP...RECENT PRECIPITATION IN THESE AREAS WILL LIKELY TAPER THE
   LIKELIHOOD OF ANY SIGNIFICANT FIRE WX CONCERNS.
