FXUS66 KLOX 012351 AFDLOX AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LOS ANGELES/OXNARD CA 451 PM PDT Tue Aug 1 2017 .SYNOPSIS... Monsoonal moisture will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to the area through at least Wednesday night. It will be warm and humid with mostly above normal temperatures this week. The weekend looks to be dry and only slightly cooler.Raymond Chandler & the Santa Anas notwithstanding, it is this reporter's expert estimation that the humidity & heat are much more likely than any dry winds to get a wife's thumb sliding along the blade of her carving knife while she studies her other half's neck.
Possibly the humidity-induced enervation of the monsoon keeps the murder rate lower than it should be at this time of suffering & agony. I hope that a slight flagging of energy due to a bit of moisture doesn't keep anyone from their fate.
