DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0421 PM CDT SUN MAY 24 2015

VALID 261200Z - 011200Z

QUIESCENT FIRE-WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD.

A MEAN LARGE-SCALE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST ACROSS THE WESTERN
UNITED STATES THROUGH MOST OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. WITHIN THIS
LARGER-SCALE FLOW...A SERIES OF SHORT-WAVE TROUGHS WILL MOVE FROM
THE EASTERN PACIFIC...THROUGH THE SOUTHWEST...AND INTO THE CENTRAL
UNITED STATES. THESE TROUGHS WILL BRING SEASONABLY COOL TEMPERATURES
AND PERIODIC RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST AND MUCH OF THE
SOUTH-CENTRAL UNITED STATES. DESPITE THESE PERIODIC SHORT-WAVE
TROUGHS...RELATIVELY WEAK SURFACE-PRESSURE GRADIENTS WILL PRECLUDE
STRONG WINDS DEVELOPING ACROSS AREAS NOT ANTICIPATING SIGNIFICANT
RAINFALL /ARIZONA AND PORTIONS OF NEW MEXICO/ ACTING TO LIMIT THE
OVERALL FIRE-WEATHER THREAT.
