DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0224 PM CST WED DEC 24 2014

VALID 261200Z - 011200Z

NO LARGE SCALE FIRE WEATHER AREAS ARE EXPECTED.

THE UPPER FLOW WILL GENERALLY FEATURE AN UPPER TROUGH OVER THE SW
U.S. AND AN UPPER RIDGE OFF THE WEST COAST.  MOST FUELS ACROSS THE
U.S. INCLUDING SRN CA HAVE BENEFITED FROM RECENT PRECIPITATION AND
COOL TO COLD CONDITIONS WITH MOST AREAS REPORTING MOIST FUELS.

THROUGH THE PERIOD...PERIODIC SURGES OF COLD SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
WILL MOVE ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN U.S...FURTHER REDUCING ANY
FIRE WEATHER CHANCES.

WITH THE UPPER RIDGE JUST OFF THE WEST COAST AND SURFACE HIGH
PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT BASIN...AN OFFSHORE COMPONENT TO THE WINDS
ALONG WITH LOWER HUMIDITY AND MILD TEMPERATURES WILL PERIODICALLY BE
PRESENT OVER SRN CA...HOWEVER THE MOST FUELS ARE MOIST WITH RECENT
RAINS.
