THE ATMOSPHERE IS A LITTLE DRIER TODAY, WITH PRECIPITABLE WATER

ON THE 12Z KNKX SOUNDING DOWN TO 1.69 INCHES FROM THE 1.75 INCHES

YESTERDAY.

DEW POINT TEMPERATURES ARE ALSO DOWN 5 TO 10 DEGREES

COMPARED TO YESTERDAY IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS. WHILE THERE IS

A LITTLE LESS AVAILABLE MOISTURE TODAY, THERE SHOULD STILL BE

ENOUGH MOISTURE, INSTABILITY, AND SURFACE HEATING TO GENERATE

SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS IN THE MOUNTAINS, MAINLY IN SAN

BERNARDINO COUNTY.

HIGH RESOLUTION GUIDANCE IS SHOWING EVEN LESS

THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WEDNESDAY, WITH FURTHER DECREASES IN

PRECIPITABLE WATER. FOR THURSDAY, CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL

INCREASE ONCE AGAIN ALONG WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVIER RAINFALL

AND FLASH FLOODING. THE LOCAL NAM-BOUNDED WRF SHOWS DEVELOPMENT ON

THURSDAY AFTERNOON MOSTLY ALONG CONVERGENCE BOUNDARIES IN THE

MOUNTAINS INTO THE HIGH DESERT.

FRIDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK, ELONGATED HIGH PRESSURE FROM WEST TO

EAST WILL REMAIN CENTERED ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN ROCKIES

AND PLAINS BRINGING THE FLOW OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE FROM THE

SOUTHEAST INTO THE AREA. THIS WILL HELP INCREASE THUNDERSTORM

CHANCES EACH AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS.

THUNDERSTORMS COULD MOVE WEST OF THE MOUNTAINS AT TIMES AND OCCUR AT

OTHER TIMES OF DAY.

NBM CHANCES FOR MEASURABLE RAINFALL FOR BIG BEAR

REMAIN HIGHEST ON MONDAY. NBM SURFACE DEWPOINTS INCREASE STEADILY

FOR THERMAL FOR THE WEEKEND INTO MONDAY, PEAKING AT 74 ON MONDAY

MORNING, SO IT SHOULD BE NOTICEABLY MORE HUMID IN THE LOWER DESERTS

BY SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

MOST DAYS INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WILL HAVE PERIODS OF HIGH CLOUDS

WITH PATCHY NIGHT AND MORNING LOW CLOUDS ALONG THE COAST. THE

MONSOONAL MOISTURE AND CLOUD COVERAGE WILL LEAD TO WARMER NIGHTS

AND COOLER INLAND HIGH TEMPERATURES, WITH TEMPERATURES FOR THE

MOUNTAINS, DESERTS, AND INLAND VALLEYS 5 TO LOCALLY 10 DEGREES

BELOW AVERAGE. NBM SHOWS AN 18 PERCENT CHANCE FOR THERMAL NOT TO

HAVE A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 100 OR MORE FOR NEXT MONDAY.
