..SYNOPSIS
 
 
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ON D2/THURSDAY WILL REMAIN TIED TO A  
PERSISTENT OFFSHORE GRADIENT REGIME IN COASTAL RANGES OF SOUTHERN  
CALIFORNIA. THIS GRADIENT WILL BE REINFORCED BY A WEAK  
HIGH-PRESSURE AREA SETTLING INTO THE GREAT BASIN EARLY IN THE DAY.  
ELSEWHERE, AN EXPANSIVE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL RESULT IN A  
MINIMAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT IN THE GREAT PLAINS WHERE FUELS ARE  
OTHERWISE DRY.  
   
..COASTAL RANGES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
 
 
GUSTY NORTHEASTERLY SURFACE WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE  
FORECAST PERIOD, WITH 35+ MPH GUSTS BEING COMMON IN TERRAIN-FAVORED  
AREAS. ONCE AGAIN, MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL FLIRT WITH CRITICAL  
THRESHOLDS (15%) BUT GENERALLY REMAIN HIGH ENOUGH TO PRECLUDE AND  
WIDESPREAD CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. WHERE FUELS ARE DRY,  
AN ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER THREAT WILL EXIST.
