Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0318 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Valid 301200Z - 051200Z

An upper trough/low will remain over the eastern CONUS and Canada on
Day 3/Tuesday, while upper ridging persists across much of the West.
Some increase in fire weather concerns may be realized across
portions of the Great Basin on Day 4/Wednesday as a separate upper
trough is forecast to advance eastward from CA across the western
Great Basin. However, latest fuel guidance suggests most locations
across the Great Basin have generally unreceptive fuels at the
moment, and it remains unclear if they will become receptive enough
to support large fire spread by Day 4/Wednesday. Therefore, have not
included probabilities on Day 4/Wednesday for critical fire weather
conditions across any portion of the Great Basin. The upper trough
over the western states should continue northeastward towards the
northern Rockies on Day 5/Thursday, with increasing model spread and
limited predictability from Day 6/Friday onwards.
