Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0155 AM CDT Tue May 23 2017

Valid 231200Z - 241200Z


Cold front currently moving southward across the Plains will
continue southward throughout the day. By 00Z Wednesday, the cold
front will likely extend from a surface low over the middle OH
Valley southwestward to deep south TX. At the same time, upper low
currently over MN will drop southward into the middle MS Valley as
the flow aloft through its base strengthens.

Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected across portions of
the Southeast and mid-Atlantic and ahead of the cold front across
the southern Plains. High surface pressure is anticipated across the
Plains in the wake of the cold front, acting to enhance the surface
pressure gradient across portions of the Southwest. Resulting breezy
conditions will overlap antecedent dry conditions across northwest
NM to support some locally elevated fire weather conditions. Small
areal extent and short-duration of the threat as well as only
moderately dry fuels preclude introducing an outlook area with this
forecast. Fire weather conditions are not anticipated elsewhere
across the CONUS.
