   Valid 191700Z - 201200Z

   The ongoing forecast is on track and no changes are needed.  A weak
   offshore gradient will encourage areas of gusty downslope winds
   within the elevated area, although these winds will weaken some
   throughout the afternoon.  See the previous forecast discussion for
   more information.

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1131 PM CST Sun Nov 18 2018/

   The ridge which has been persistent along the west coast for awhile
   will start to shift east during the day Monday. At the surface, high
   pressure in the Great Basin will start to weaken and shift east.
   There will still be a weak offshore pressure gradient across
   southern California which may lead to some elevated fire weather
   conditions in the coastal mountains of southern California with
   relative humidity values around 12 to 20 percent and winds around 15
   mph. These conditions will likely peak during the morning hours and
   again Monday night. Monday afternoon, deep mixing may bring some
   stronger southeasterly winds around 15 to 20 mph along some of the
   transverse ranges, but nothing more than isolated and brief critical
   conditions are expected.
