AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
424 PM PDT MON JUN 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO FLOW OVER THE AREA
PRODUCING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO THE DESERT AND
MOUNTAIN/FOOTHILL AREAS THROUGH THURSDAY. OTHERWISE PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO PERSIST.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHEAST FLOW AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF A HIGH PRESSURE AREA
CENTERED NEAR THE FOUR CORNERS REGION CONTINUES TO PULL MOISTURE
ACROSS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. AS A RESULT...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A
FEW THUNDERSTORMS HAVE AGAIN DEVELOPED OVER THE SOUTHERN SIERRA
NEVADA. SHORT TERM HIGH RES MODEL SUGGESTS THE SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL AFFECT THE MOUNTAIN AND DESERT AREAS
THROUGH THIS EVENING...DISSIPATING WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME
HEATING. ASSOCIATED PASSING CLOUDS HAVE NOT SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTED
TEMPERATURES...WITH HIGHS ON TRACK TO TOP OUT A FEW DEGREES ABOVE
CLIMO...INCLUDING SEVERAL LOCATIONS REACHING TRIPLE DIGITS.

THE LARGE MID/UPPER HIGH PRESSURE AREA IS PROGGED TO DRIFT
WESTWARD...CREATING A LESS FAVORABLE MOISTURE FLOW OVER OUR AREA
BUT STILL SUFFICIENT FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF MOUNTAIN AND DESERT
CONVECTION...ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGH SIERRA. THE RETROGRADING HIGH
WILL ALSO BRING HOTTER TEMPERATURES FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
WITH THE INCREASED HUMIDITY...THE SUMMER HEAT WILL BE MORE
OPPRESSIVE. HEAT INDEX READINGS AT A FEW VALLEY LOCATIONS ARE
EXPECTED TO REACH 105 DEGREES TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WHILE
OVERNIGHT READINGS STAY NEAR 80 DEGREES TUESDAY NIGHTS. THESE
CONDITIONS ARE NOT WIDESPREAD ENOUGH TO TRIGGER AN EXCESSIVE HEAT
WARNING...HOWEVER EVERYONE SHOULD BE ALERT TO THE DANGER OF THESE
HOT CONDITIONS.

MODELS FORECAST THE UPPER LEVEL HIGH TO SLIDE EASTWARD AGAIN BY
THURSDAY...WHICH WILL BRING INCREASED MOISTURE AND CLOUD COVER.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE A FEW DEGREES LOWER AND CHANCES FOR
CONVECTION WILL BE INCREASED. SOME GUIDANCE SUCH AS THE NAEFS &&
SUGGEST A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS IN THE SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY AS WELL...BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO
INCLUDE THIS IN THE FORECAST AT THIS TIME.

EXPECT CONTINUED HOT BUT DRIER CONDITIONS AFTER THURSDAY AS THE
UPPER HIGH CONTINUES TO DRIFT EASTWARD AND FLOW TURNS MORE
SOUTHWESTERLY. TEMPERATURES SHOULD RUN A FEW TO SEVERAL DEGREES
ABOVE CLIMO THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND...WITH MAX TEMPS IN THE
VALLEY AND DESERT AREAS RUNNING WITHIN A COUPLE OF DEGREES...PLUS
OR MINUS...OF THE CENTURY MARK.


.AVIATION...
LOCAL MVFR CONDITIONS AND MOUNTAIN OBSCURATIONS IN ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THIS EVENING AND AGAIN AFTER 18Z TUE.
OTHERWISE...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CA
INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

PRODUCING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO THE DESERT AND
MOUNTAIN/FOOTHILL AREAS THROUGH THURSDAY. OTHERWISE PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO PERSIST.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
CONTINUED SUB TROPICAL FLOW ACROSS THE REGION HAS PROVIDED SOME
ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE SIERRA AND A FEW SPRINKLES
ELSEWHERE YESTERDAY. INCREASED HUMIDITY AND LOWER TEMPS HAVE BEEN
OBSERVED OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. SOUTHERLY FLOW PATTERN IS
BEING STEERED BY A LARGE UPPER LEVEL AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER
THE GREAT BASIN. A SERIES OF WEAK EMBEDDED SHORTWAVES IN THE
SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL KICK OFF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
TODAY WITH CONTINUED SEASONAL TEMPS.

THE UPPER RIDGE RETROGRADES A BIT ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WITH
TEMPS SOARING TO NEAR RECORD LEVELS. POOR OVERNIGHT COOLING IS
EXPECTED AS TEMPS WILL REMAIN QUITE WARM. ANOTHER SURGE ASSOCIATED
WITH A MODERATE SHORTWAVE MOVING NORTH ACROSS THE REGION ALONG
THE WEST SIDE THE CLOCKWISE FLOW OF THE UPPER RIDGE WILL COOL
THINGS OFF THURSDAY AND EVEN MORE ON FRIDAY WITH INCREASED CLOUD
COVER AND INCREASED CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION.

MODELS HAVE BEEN NOT HANDLING THE QPF VERY WELL AT ALL AND HAVE
HAD TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS IN THE DOWNWARD TREND. HOWEVER WE MAY SEE
MORE PRECIPITATION AS DEEPER MOISTURE SURGES NORTH WITH THE
SHORTWAVE TODAY. DRY LIGHTNING IS STILL A THREAT...HOWEVER
COVERAGE LOOKS SCATTERED AT BEST.

FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND...WE ARE LOOKING FOR TEMPS TO
REMAIN WARM AND A CONTINUED SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE SIERRA. NO RAIN IS EXPECTED IN THE SAN
JOAQUIN VALLEY AT THIS TIME.

227 PM PDT SUN JUN 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO FLOW OVER THE AREA
PRODUCING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO THE DESERT AND
MOUNTAIN/FOOTHILL AREAS THROUGH THURSDAY. OTHERWISE PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO PERSIST.

&&

.DISCUSSION...MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO SURGE NORTH INTO
CALIFORNIA THIS AFTERNOON...BRINGING ABUNDANT CLOUD COVER TO THE
ENTIRE REGION AND SCATTERED RAIN SHOWERS. AN UPPER TROUGH JUST OFF
THE CALIFORNIA COAST PROVIDED ENOUGH INSTABILITY TO KICK OFF
SHOWERS OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA...SURROUNDING FOOTHILLS...AND
DESERT LOCATIONS. AS OF 2 PM...A FEW LOCATIONS IN THE DESERT SUCH
AS BORON AND CALIFORNIA CITY PICKED UP 0.01" OF RAIN...WHILE OTHER
SPOTS REPORTED TRACE AMOUNTS. THE SHORT TERM OPERATIONAL MODELS
INDICATE THAT THESE SHOWERS WILL PERSIST INTO THE EVENING HOURS.

TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON WERE GENERALLY BETWEEN 5 AND 9 DEGREES
COOLER COMPARED TO 24 HOURS AGO...WITH VALLEY AND FOOTHILL
LOCATIONS IN THE UPPER 80S TO LOW 90S AND DESERT LOCATIONS IN THE
90S. TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO WARM ANOTHER FEW DEGREES BEFORE
SUNSET AND WILL BE NEAR NORMAL FOR THE END OF JUNE.

AN UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE IS FORECAST TO MOVE NORTH FROM SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA MONDAY MORNING INTO THE
AFTERNOON HOURS. WITH MONSOONAL MOISTURE IN PLACE...THIS WILL
GENERATE ENOUGH INSTABILITY TO INITIATE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ONCE AGAIN OVER THE REGION. MONDAY LOOKS TO BE THE BEST DAY OF
SEEING AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...HOWEVER THE CHANCE STILL LOOKS BEST OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN AND OVER THE DESERT.

BY TUESDAY...UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FOUR CORNERS
REGION IS FORECAST TO SHIFT WEST INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA BRINGING
A WARMING TREND AS WELL AS A DRIER AIRMASS. THIS WILL CONFINE ANY
CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND THE DESERT
THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK.

TEMPERATURES ALL OF NEXT WEEK WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL...WITH
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY SLATED TO BE THE WARMEST DAYS OF THE
WEEK...WITH READINGS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. IN
FACT...MANY VALLEY LOCATIONS WILL SEE ANOTHER 4 TO 6 DAY STRETCH
OF 100 PLUS DEGREE TEMPERATURES BEGINNING ON TUESDAY.

ONCE AGAIN OVER THE REGION. MONDAY LOOKS TO BE THE BEST DAY OF
SEEING AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OVER THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...HOWEVER THE CHANCE STILL LOOKS BEST OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN AND OVER THE DESERT.

BY TUESDAY...UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FOUR CORNERS
REGION IS FORECAST TO SHIFT WEST INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA BRINGING
A WARMING TREND AS WELL AS A DRIER AIRMASS. THIS WILL CONFINE ANY
CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND THE DESERT
THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK.

TEMPERATURES ALL OF NEXT WEEK WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL...WITH
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY SLATED TO BE THE WARMEST DAYS OF THE
WEEK...WITH READINGS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. IN
FACT...MANY VALLEY LOCATIONS WILL SEE ANOTHER 4 TO 6 DAY STRETCH
OF 100 PLUS DEGREE TEMPERATURES BEGINNING ON TUESDAY.

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERT
THROUGH THIS EVENING. OTHERWISE...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL
THROUGHOUT THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA INTERIOR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

.SYNOPSIS...A SURGE OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL PROVIDE AN INCREASED
THREAT OF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY ACROSS THE
MOUNTAINS AND DESERT THROUGH THURSDAY. OTHERWISE PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO PERSIST.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES HAS MOVED INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.
WEATHER RADAR SHOWS A BAND LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS MOVING NORTH ALONG
THE WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY. HOWEVER LITTLE RAIN
MAKING IT INTO RAIN GAGES DUE DRY LOW LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE.
SATELLITE ESTIMATES OF PRECIPITABLE WATER SHOWS VALUES NEAR 1.0
INCH PUSHING INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. DEEPER MOISTURE TOWARDS
SCAL SHOULD REACH CENTRAL CA TODAY. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW OFF THE
COAST WILL MOVE NORTH TODAY AND OVER NCAL TONIGHT. A STRETCHED OUT
AREA OF VORTICITY AHEAD OF THE LOW WILL MOVE INTO THE SIERRA THIS
AFTERNOON AND PROVIDE DYNAMIC LIFT TO TRIGGER SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. MODELS PROG UNSTABLE CONDITIONS OVER THE SIERRA
THIS AFTERNOON WITH NEAR 1000J/KG. ANY SHOWER ACTIVITY COULD LAST
THROUGH THE EVENING. NAEFS PROGS INDICATE A HIGH AMOUNT OF
MOISTURE REMAINING ACROSS CENTRAL CAL FOR MUCH OF THE WORKWEEK.
THUS A CHANCE FOR FOR CONVECTIVE STORM DEVELOPMENT WILL CONTINUE
EACH AFTERNOON OVER THE MOUNTAINS. A MODERATE SOUTH MID LEVEL FLOW
COULD BRING THUNDER INTO THE SOUTH SJV FROM REMNANT CONVECTIVE
ACTIVITY OVER THE TEHACHAPIS EACH EVENING MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT WEST OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA FROM THE
INTERIOR WEST WEDNESDAY THIS WILL RESULT IN A WARMING TREND
MONDAY INTO THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK. AS OF NOW...THE WARMEST
DAY OF THE WEEK LOOKS TO BE WEDNESDAY...WITH SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
AND FOOTHILL LOCATIONS WARMING TO AROUND THE 105 DEGREE MARK. THE
DESERT LOCATIONS WILL WARM TO NEARLY 11O IN SOME LOCATIONS.

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES THE FOUR CORNERS REGION AND AN
UPPER TROUGH MOVES EAST TOWARD THE CALIFORNIA COASTLINE. AN UPPER
LEVEL IMPULSE OF VORTICITY IMPACTING SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INTO KERN
COUNTY GENERATED SHOWERS LATE THIS MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON
HOURS. IN FACT...A FEW RADAR ECHOS WERE OBSERVED OVER MUCH OF
SOUTHERN KERN COUNTY AND WE DID HAVE A REPORT OF SPRINKLES IN
TEHACHAPI AROUND 2 PM. SHOWERS AND SPRINKLES WILL BE POSSIBLE
THROUGH MAINLY THE DESERT AND MOUNTAIN LOCATIONS IN KERN COUNTY
THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS AS THIS UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE MOVES
QUICKLY NORTHWEST TO THE WEST SIDE OF THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY
DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. THIS WILL BE WATCHED CLOSELY AND THE
FORECAST MAY NEED TO BE UPDATED FOR SHOWERS FURTHER TO THE NORTH
THAN WE HAVE CURRENTLY HAVE.

SIERRA NEVADA. WE WILL WATCH FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF VALLEY
THUNDERSTORMS TOMORROW...EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT CURRENTLY IN
THE FORECAST. PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE WEATHER CLOSELY OVER
THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO NUDGE WEST OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
FROM NEVADA ON MONDAY AS THE UPPER TROUGH LIFTS NORTH OUT OF THE

HALF OF NEXT WEEK. AS OF NOW...THE WARMEST DAY OF THE WEEK LOOKS
TO BE WEDNESDAY...WITH SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND FOOTHILL LOCATIONS
WARMING TO AROUND THE 105 DEGREE MARK. THE DESERT LOCATIONS WILL

MOISTURE WILL BRING AN INCREASING CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO
MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER WARM DAY TODAY AS AN UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WEST WILL CHANGE
LITTLE. AN UPPER LOW OFF THE COAST WILL PROVIDE A SOUTH FLOW
ALOFT TODAY BRINGING AN INCREASE IN UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE INTO CA.
THE MARINE LAYER ALONG THE COAST HAS DEEPEN TO 1800 FEET AT FORT
ORD. THUS TEMPERATURES SHOULD A BIT COOLER WITH THE INCREASED HIGH
CLOUD COVER AND A DELTA BREEZE INTO THE INTERIOR. MODEL FORECAST
SOUNDINGS SHOWS AN INVERTED V TYPE SOUNDING WITH MOISTURE INCREASING
ABOVE 20KFT AND DRY LOW LEVELS. MODELS PROG A COUPLE OF
PERTURBATIONS MOVING THROUGH THE S FLOW AND COULD PROVIDE
ADDITIONAL LIFT TO TRIGGER CONVECTIVE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT. ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS WILL PROVIDE LITTLE RAINFALL
INCREASING THE THREAT OF FIRE STARTS WITH PLENTY OF DRY FUELS IN
THE MOUNTAINS. RICHER TROPICAL MOISTURE REMAINS TOWARDS THE
SONORAN DESERT AND WILL PUSH NORTH OVER CENTRAL CAL SUNDAY AS THE
COASTAL LOW MOVES NORTH TOWARDS NCAL. A STRONGER MONSOON FLOW
WILL BRING THE RICHER MOISTURE INTO CA DURING SUNDAY. FORECAST
MODEL PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES ARE ABOVE 1.0 INCH WHICH IS NEAR
SEASONABLE MAXIMUN VALUES. THUS THE THREAT OF DRY LIGHTNING WILL
DIMINISH WITH A THREAT OF LOCAL HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK WITH
ANY AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM.

WITH THE PREVAILING SOUTHERLY FLOW...THERE IS A GOOD LIKELIHOOD
THAT ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP OVER THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS
COULD DRIFT NORTHWARD INTO THE SOUTH END OF THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...POSSIBLY AS FAR NORTH AS BAKERSFIELD MONDAY AND TUESDAY
AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. BY WEDNESDAY THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OVER
THE GREAT BASIN IS FORECAST TO EXPAND WESTWARD WEDNESDAY...PUSHING
THE MID-LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY.

THE CONVECTIVE STORM THREAT WILL DIMINISH DURING MID WEEK WITH

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY - HANFORD CA
326 AM PDT SAT JUN 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FOUR CORNERS REGION WILL
CONTINUE TO BRING DRY WEATHER AND ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO THE
CENTRAL CA INTERIOR THROUGH TODAY. A NORTHERLY PUSH OF MONSOONAL
MOISTURE WILL BRING AN INCREASING CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO
MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER WARM DAY TODAY AS AN UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WEST WILL CHANGE
LITTLE. AN UPPER LOW OFF THE COAST WILL PROVIDE A SOUTH FLOW
ALOFT TODAY BRINGING AN INCREASE IN UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE INTO CA.
THE MARINE LAYER ALONG THE COAST HAS DEEPEN TO 1800 FEET AT FORT
ORD. THUS TEMPERATURES SHOULD A BIT COOLER WITH THE INCREASED HIGH
CLOUD COVER AND A DELTA BREEZE INTO THE INTERIOR. MODEL FORECAST
SOUNDINGS SHOWS AN INVERTED V TYPE SOUNDING WITH MOISTURE INCREASING
ABOVE 20KFT AND DRY LOW LEVELS. MODELS PROG A COUPLE OF
PERTURBATIONS MOVING THROUGH THE S FLOW AND COULD PROVIDE
ADDITIONAL LIFT TO TRIGGER CONVECTIVE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT. ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS WILL PROVIDE LITTLE RAINFALL
INCREASING THE THREAT OF FIRE STARTS WITH PLENTY OF DRY FUELS IN
THE MOUNTAINS. RICHER TROPICAL MOISTURE REMAINS TOWARDS THE
SONORAN DESERT AND WILL PUSH NORTH OVER CENTRAL CAL SUNDAY AS THE
COASTAL LOW MOVES NORTH TOWARDS NCAL. A STRONGER MONSOON FLOW
WILL BRING THE RICHER MOISTURE INTO CA DURING SUNDAY. FORECAST
MODEL PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES ARE ABOVE 1.0 INCH WHICH IS NEAR
SEASONABLE MAXIMUN VALUES. THUS THE THREAT OF DRY LIGHTNING WILL
DIMINISH WITH A THREAT OF LOCAL HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK WITH
ANY AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM.

WITH THE PREVAILING SOUTHERLY FLOW...THERE IS A GOOD LIKELIHOOD
THAT ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP OVER THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS
COULD DRIFT NORTHWARD INTO THE SOUTH END OF THE SAN JOAQUIN
VALLEY...POSSIBLY AS FAR NORTH AS BAKERSFIELD MONDAY AND TUESDAY
AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. BY WEDNESDAY THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OVER
THE GREAT BASIN IS FORECAST TO EXPAND WESTWARD WEDNESDAY...PUSHING
THE MID-LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY.

THE CONVECTIVE STORM THREAT WILL DIMINISH DURING MID WEEK WITH
STORM POTENTIAL MAINLY OVER THE SIERRA NEVADA EACH AFTERNOON. THE
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL REMAIN ABNORMALLY STRONG 594DM OVER CENTRAL
CA. THUS TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH NEXT
WEEK.
