TODAY AND TONIGHT: KEY POINTS: á ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE FOR INLAND PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL COAST. á POTENTIAL HAZARDS INCLUDE LIGHTNING, LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS, AND SMALL HAIL. á FIRE STARTS ARE ARE A CONCERN GIVEN DRYING FUELS AND DRY LIGHTNING POTENTIAL. á THIS REMAINS A POTENTIALLY HIGH IMPACT, YET LOW CONFIDENCE FORECAST. KEEP UP WITH FORECAST CHANGES. AN UPPER CIRCULATION OFF THE SOCAL COAST WILL DEVOLVE TO AN OPEN- WAVE TROUGH WHILE LIFTING TOWARDS CENTRAL CA TONIGHT. MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL WRAP CYCLONICALLY AROUND THIS SYSTEM. CONVECTIVE AVAILABLE POTENTIAL ENERGY FOR AN ELEVATED PARCEL ALSO INCREASES TO OVER 400 J/KG ACROSS FAR INTERIOR MONTEREY AND SAN BENITO COUNTIES BY THIS AFTERNOON. GIVEN THE AVAILABILITY OF MOISTURE (ESPECIALLY ALOFT), INSTABILITY (STEEP LAPSE RATES), AND LIFT (UPPER LOW AND WEAK SURFACE TROUGH) HIGH-BASED SHOWER AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IS POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF OUR AREA LATER TODAY. THE BEST POTENTIAL FOR THIS IS OVER SAN BENITO AND FAR WESTERN MONTEREY COUNTIES WHERE SOME OVERLAP OF WEAK SHEAR AND MODEST INSTABILITY EXITS. THIS POTENTIAL COULD EXTEND TOWARDS SOUTHEAST PORTIONS OF THE BAY AREA, ALTHOUGH INSTABILITY APPEARS TO BE A LIMITING FACTOR. SHOULD THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP THE PRIMARY HAZARDS WOULD BE OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING, LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS, AND PERHAPS SMALL HAIL. IN FACT, PROXIMITY SOUNDINGS OVER SAN BENITO COUNTY EXHIBIT AN INVERTED-V PROFILE WITH SUFFICIENTLY STRONG DOWNDRAFT CAPE FOR STRONG TO LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS SHOULD ANY TALLER THUNDERSTORM CORES DEVELOP. WHILE THIS RISK IS CONDITIONAL, ITúS WORTH NOTING DEPENDING UPON CONVECTIVE TRENDS TODAY. NEW FIRE STARTS WOULD BE ANOTHER POSSIBLE CONCERN GIVEN LIGHTNING POTENTIAL AND DRYING FUELS. THIS REMAINS A POTENTIALLY HIGH IMPACT, YET LOW CONFIDENCE FORECAST. SHOULD CONFIDENCE IN THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL INCREASE ITúS POSSIBLE THAT A SHORT-FUSED FIRE WEATHER HEADLINE MAY BE REQUIRED FOR PORTIONS OF OUR AREA TODAY. STAY TUNED FOR FORECAST UPDATES. THE BEST WINDOW FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT TODAY IS BETWEEN APPROXIMATELY NOON AND 6 PM, ALTHOUGH COULDNúT RULE OUT ISOLATED DEVELOPMENT A BIT EARLIER GIVEN ONGOING STORMS OVER THE CENTRAL VALLEY. OTHERWISE WARM TEMPERATURES WILL PREVAIL FOR INLAND AREAS THE NIGHT ONCE AGAIN
