   A broad mid-level ridge over the western United States is forecast
   to gradually recede southward through Day 2/Sunday as a mid-level
   shortwave trough approaches the eastern Pacific coast. Meanwhile, a
   relatively weak area of surface high pressure if forecast to remain
   over the Great Basin.

   ...Southern California...
   Elevated to locally critical fire weather conditions are forecast
   much of Day 2/Sunday as a persistent dry airmass (single digit
   minimum RH values and poor overnight recoveries) overlaps lingering
   breeziness (sustained winds of 15-20 mph) and critically-receptive
   fuels (ERC values exceeding the 90th percentile). In general, the
   lack of appreciable upper-level support will preclude a more robust
   fire weather threat.
