DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0322 PM CDT SUN AUG 02 2015

VALID 041200Z - 101200Z

MEDIUM RANGE GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO INDICATE A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN IN
NORTHERN STREAM FLOW ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CONUS.  THIS
WILL RESULT IN THE CONTINUED SOUTHWARD SUPPRESSION OF AN UPPER RIDGE
OVER THE SOUTHWEST/SOUTH-CENTRAL STATES THROUGH MOST OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. AS A SERIES OF SHORTWAVE TROUGHS MIGRATE FROM THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST ACROSS THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS TO THE GREAT
LAKES...SOME ENHANCED DEEP LAYER WESTERLY FLOW WILL BE POSSIBLE NEAR
THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AND ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS. THIS MAY LEAD TO SOME
ELEVATED CONDITIONS BUT WILL BE DEPENDENT ON AVAILABLE FUELS...WHICH
MAY BECOME MORE ABUNDANT TOWARD THE LATTER HALF OF THE PERIOD.
CONFIDENCE IN WHERE/WHEN THIS MAY OCCUR IS RATHER LOW AT THIS POINT
SO NO AREAS WILL BE DELINEATED AT THIS TIME. OTHERWISE...ISOLATED TO
WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE
NORTHWEST/NORTHERN ROCKIES ON DAY 3/TUESDAY AHEAD OF THE FIRST
SHORTWAVE IMPULSE COMING OUT OF SOUTHWEST CANADA. WHERE FUELS ARE
DRY...A THREAT FOR NEW IGNITIONS WILL EXIST.
