DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0418 PM CDT SAT JUL 12 2014

VALID 141200Z - 201200Z

DAY 3/MONDAY...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED DRY THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
FROM THE NRN ROCKIES...SWD THROUGH NORTHERN NEVADA AS AN UPPER
DISTURBANCE CRESTS TO TOP THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE NRN ROCKIES AND
BEGINS TO MOVE SEWD THROUGH MIDWEEK.

ALSO ON MONDAY...MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT WESTWARD
THROUGH WRN AZ AND INTO SRN CA.  AT THIS TIME...NEARLY ALL GUIDANCE
INDICATES A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE MOISTURE AND MOSTLY WET
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF SRN CA.  THIS AREA HAS
CONTINUED UNDER SEVERE TO EXTREME LONG-TERM DROUGHT AND FUELS ARE
VERY DRY.  ALTHOUGH WETTING RAINS ARE MORE LIKELY FROM THESE
STORMS...FIRE STARTS ARE POSSIBLE FROM LIGHTNING OUTSIDE OF ANY RAIN
CORES AND/OR SOME STORMS WITH LIGHTNING...BUT LITTLE WETTING RAINS.

FOR MIDWEEK INTO THE WEEKEND...ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE
SIERRAS THROUGH PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN ARE POSSIBLE ALTHOUGH IT
WILL BE PRIMARILY A MIX OF BOTH WET AND DRY TSTMS.  PROBABILITY OF
DRY THUNDERSTORMS IN ANY PARTICULAR AREA REMAINS LOW AT THIS TIME.
IT WILL ALSO REMAIN HOT WITH LOW HUMIDITY IN THE AFTERNOONS ACROSS
THIS AREA.
