DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0336 PM CST SAT FEB 28 2015

VALID 021200Z - 081200Z

A DEEP UPPER TROUGH WILL BE IN PLACE OVER THE WRN CONUS AT THE START
OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD. A SMALLER-SCALE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO EJECT
EWD AND WEAKEN ON D3/MONDAY...WHILE THE PRIMARY LARGE-SCALE TROUGH
BEGINS TO PROGRESS EWD ON D4/TUESDAY. INCREASING SWLY FLOW AHEAD OF
THESE FEATURES WILL RESULT IN ENHANCED SFC WINDS/LOW RH IN FAVORED
DOWNSLOPE LOCATIONS ACROSS PARTS OF NM INTO W TX...BUT RELATIVELY
COOL TEMPERATURES AND GENERALLY UNFAVORABLE FUELS ARE EXPECTED TO
LIMIT THE THREAT FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER.

FOR D5/WEDNESDAY AND BEYOND...AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO
BUILD INTO THE SOUTHWEST WHILE A LARGE-SCALE TROUGH COVERS MUCH OF
THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS. WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
SRN CA INTO THE GREAT BASIN/DESERT SOUTHWEST...BUT THE FIRE WEATHER
THREAT IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIMITED THROUGH THIS PERIOD DUE TO WEAK
LOW-LEVEL FLOW AND GENERALLY UNFAVORABLE FUELS ACROSS MOST AREAS.
