Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0324 PM CDT Tue Jun 27 2017

Valid 291200Z - 051200Z

Through early next week, low-amplitude, enhanced flow aloft will be
primarily relegated to the northern states -- displaced to the north
of persistent dry surface conditions across parts of the southwest
states and central Great Basin. This will generally limit the
critical fire-weather risk through the period. However, on
Day-3/Thursday, sufficiently enhanced flow peripheral to a
disturbance crossing the central states may yield some critical
fire-weather risk across northwest NM and vicinity, where low RH and
dry fuels will also exist. However, the anticipated lack of stronger
low-level flow precludes critical designation. Despite the risk for
increased wind/low RH occurring across portions of the region at
times farther east (southern High Plains) on at least a brief/spotty
basis for Day-3/Thursday, less-favorable fuels for fire spread in
these areas preclude probabilistic delineations.
