DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0355 AM CDT FRI SEP 19 2014

VALID 191200Z - 201200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
THE UPPER-AIR PATTERN WILL BEGIN TO TRANSITION FROM ZONAL /WITH THE
STRONGEST FLOW REMAINING ALONG AND NORTH OF THE UNITED STATES-CANADA
BORDER/ TO AMPLIFIED /WITH A RIDGE BUILDING ACROSS WESTERN CANADA
AND TROUGH DIGGING INTO THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES/. COINCIDENT WITH
THIS TRANSITION...A WEAK TROUGH OFF THE COAST OF CALIFORNIA WILL
BEGIN TO MOVE ASHORE.

ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN IDAHO AND SOUTHERN WYOMING...BREEZY
SURFACE WINDS WILL COEXIST WITH RELATIVE-HUMIDITY VALUES BETWEEN 20
AND 35 PERCENT FOR A COUPLE HOURS DURING THE AFTERNOON.
HOWEVER...FUELS LOOK TO REMAIN TOO MOIST TO SUPPORT LARGE-SCALE
FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS. ELSEWHERE...GIVEN THE LACK OF STRONG
LOW-LEVEL WINDS COUPLED WITH LOW RELATIVE-HUMIDITY
VALUES...LARGE-SCALE FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS ARE NOT EXPECTED.
