Meteorological Impact – High Pressure Dome Phenomenon & the Challenges it Raises

23 Mar 2022

The presentation will cover the National Weather Service fire weather program including fire weather forecasts (spot forecasts) for wildfires and prescribed burns, online NWS tools for weather monitoring and forecasts, specific NWS detection of satellite hot spots (GOES) and notifications, and use of NWS models for smoke dispersion and concentration. The focus is southern California.

The presentation will also cover the climate and weather aspect of recent (years) extremes (temperature, precipitation, wind) and how they are driven by the synoptic weather pattern (a dome of high pressure). If there is time, discussion of climate change observations and 10-30 year predictions (using Scripps and NOAA) that would affect tangible weather such as precipitation and temperature.
