   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0236 AM CDT MON SEP 26 2016

   VALID 271200Z - 281200Z

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID/UPPER-LEVEL LOW WILL CONTINUE DRIFTING NORTH FROM BAJA
   CALIFORNIA TOWARDS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...WHILE RIDGING TO ITS NORTH
   SHIFTS EASTWARD FROM THE GREAT BASIN TO THE CENTRAL ROCKIES. FARTHER
   EAST...STRONG CYCLONIC FLOW ALOFT WILL REMAIN ESTABLISHED ACROSS THE
   GREAT LAKES AND MID/UPPER MS VALLEY...AS A LOW DROPS SOUTH FROM LAKE
   SUPERIOR TOWARDS IL.

   ...PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...
   WHILE FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS WILL BE CONSIDERABLY LOWER THAN THOSE OF
   THE PREVIOUS DAYS...ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE STILL ANTICIPATED...
   PRIMARILY DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE PERIOD. A SOMEWHAT ENHANCED
   SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT TUESDAY MORNING SHOULD PROMOTE SUSTAINED
   EASTERLY WINDS AROUND 20-25 MPH /WITH HIGHER GUSTS/...ESPECIALLY
   OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF SAN DIEGO AND RIVERSIDE COUNTIES.
   FOLLOWING SUNRISE...RH VALUES SHOULD FALL INTO THE TEENS AND
   20S...WITH SOME BREEZINESS PERSISTING ACROSS SOUTHERN
   CA...ESPECIALLY IN TERRAIN-FAVORED LOCATIONS. GIVEN THE PRESENCE OF
   VERY DRY FUELS...FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS WILL REMAIN ELEVATED.
   HOWEVER...THESE CONCERNS SHOULD TREND DOWNWARD LATER IN THE DAY...AS
   WINDS DECREASE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...AND RH VALUES INCREASE
   THROUGH THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS WITH THE APPROACH OF A
   MID-LEVEL LOW.
