Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1145 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

Valid 241200Z - 251200Z


A few sporadic lightning strikes accompanied by minimal
precipitation cannot be entirely ruled out over coastal CA as a
plume of midlevel moisture elongates northward -- a regime
continuation from the Day-1/Friday period. The overall dearth of
larger-scale ascent interacting with the moisture plume is presently
expected to limit dry-thunderstorm coverage. As such,
dry-thunderstorm highlights have not been included.

Otherwise, no changes have been made to the ongoing forecast.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0150 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017/

Upper troughing expected to cover much of the central and eastern
CONUS at the beginning of the period will gradually shift eastward
throughout the day as upper ridging expands west of the Rockies. At
the surface, high pressure will spread southeastward across the
Plains and mid/lower MS valley. Slight westward shift of the upper
ridging across the western CONUS will allow more mid-level moisture
into NM with scattered thunderstorms anticipated during the late
afternoon across much of the state. Precipitable water over an inch
and slow storm motions suggest mostly wetting rains. Hybrid storms
are possible farther west over southeast AZ but low dry thunderstorm
coverage precludes the need to delineate a dry thunderstorm area.
Otherwise, no fire weather conditions are expected across the CONUS.
