DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0323 PM CDT WED AUG 24 2016

VALID 261200Z - 011200Z

FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL APPEARS LOW DURING THE DAY 3-8 PERIOD. AN
UPPER TROUGH WILL REMAIN OVER THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH DAY 4/SAT
BEFORE WEAK RIDGING OCCURS OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES INTO THE
CENTRAL/SRN ROCKIES. QUASI-ZONAL TO SLIGHTLY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL
REMAIN OVER THE PAC NW AND NORTHERN ROCKIES WITH ANOTHER TROUGH
EXPECTED TO MOVE INLAND AROUND THE END OF THE PERIOD. SEVERAL
SHORTWAVE IMPULSES MIGRATING THROUGH THIS SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW FROM
NORTHERN CA THROUGH THE NORTHERN ROCKIES COULD LEAD TO AREAS OF
ELEVATED WIND POTENTIAL...BUT CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW IN WHEN/WHERE
THIS WILL OCCUR DUE TO CONTINUED RUN-TO-RUN AND CROSS-MODEL
INCONSISTENCY.  OVERALL...THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN DOES NOT APPEAR
FAVORABLE FOR WIDESPREAD FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
