DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0317 PM CDT FRI APR 18 2014

VALID 201200Z - 261200Z

AN ACTIVE FIRE WEATHER PATTERN FOR THE SWRN U.S. APPEARS TO UNFOLD
NEXT WEEK IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE PROGRESSION OF A LARGE SCALE UPPER
TROUGH INTO THE WRN STATES BY THE MONDAY-TUESDAY TIMEFRAME.  FLOW
FIELDS ATTENDANT TO THE APPROACHING SYSTEM WILL INCREASE
SUBSTANTIALLY BY TUESDAY AND PROBABLY RESULT IN WIDESPREAD ELEVATED
TO CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS OVER A LARGE PART OF THE SWRN
STATES.  MODELS STILL DIFFER ON THE TIMING OF THE EJECTING MID-LEVEL
WAVE...BUT IT SEEMS LIKELY THE CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT WILL
SHIFT EASTWARD INTO ERN PORTIONS OF THE SWRN U.S. DESERTS AND EXTEND
INTO PARTS OF THE CNTRL AND SRN HIGH PLAINS ON WEDNESDAY.
THEREAFTER...APPRECIABLE MODEL VARIABILITY PRECLUDES ADDITIONAL HIGH
CONFIDENCE AREAS FOR CRITICAL CONDITIONS.
