   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z

   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL REX PATTERN WILL EXIST ACROSS THE WEST THROUGH MUCH OF
   THE PERIOD...AS A LOW DRIFTS NORTH NEAR THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA...AND
   RIDGING REMAINS CENTERED OVER THE NORTHERN GREAT BASIN. THIS PATTERN
   SHOULD MAINTAIN EASTERLY/OFFSHORE FLOW ALOFT ACROSS SOUTHERN
   CALIFORNIA. ELSEWHERE...A CORRIDOR OF STRONG CYCLONIC FLOW SHOULD
   ESTABLISH FROM MINNESOTA TO THE OH VALLEY...WITH A LOW SITUATED NEAR
   LAKE SUPERIOR.

   ...PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...
   ANOTHER DAY OF CRITICAL FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS IS ANTICIPATED ON
   MONDAY...WITH GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RH VALUES LIKELY ONGOING ACROSS
   TERRAIN-FAVORED AREAS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD. FOLLOWING
   SUNRISE...RH VALUES SHOULD QUICKLY FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS AND
   TEENS. WHILE MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL BE SOMEWHAT WEAKER THAN THAT OF THE
   PREVIOUS DAY...IT SHOULD STILL SUPPORT GUSTY OFFSHORE FLOW THROUGH
   THE MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS...ONCE AGAIN BRINGING CRITICAL
   FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS TO MUCH OF THE AREA. SUSTAINED WINDS AROUND
   20-25 MPH /WITH HIGHER GUSTS/ WILL COMBINE WITH RH VALUES BELOW 15
   PERCENT...ESPECIALLY IN TERRAIN-FAVORED LOCATIONS...TO ENHANCE
   FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS. WHILE EASTERLY WINDS MAY INCREASE SOME MONDAY
   NIGHT...SLIGHTLY HIGHER RH VALUES WILL BEGIN TO TEMPER THE THREAT
   SOME LATE IN THE PERIOD.
