Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0130 AM CST Mon Nov 20 2017

Valid 211200Z - 221200Z

On Tuesday, an upper-level ridge near the West Coast will slowly
shift eastward bringing northerly flow aloft over the central CONUS.
At the surface, a cold front will rapidly move southward across the
southern Plains, as high pressure builds in behind the front over
the central Plains.

...Southeastern New Mexico and portions of West Texas...
In the wake of the cold front, dry air and sufficient warming will
result in RH values falling to near-critical values.  With strong
residual northerly flow aloft, northerly-to-northwesterly surface
winds of 15-20 mph are expected, leading to elevated fire weather
conditions.  Farther to the northeast, stronger winds are
anticipated (sustained wind speeds of 20 mph), but RH values appear
to be too marginal given the northeasterly component of flow.
