DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0248 PM CDT FRI JUL 31 2015

VALID 021200Z - 081200Z

THE MAIN CONCERN DURING THE DAY 3-8 PERIOD WILL BE DRY THUNDERSTORMS
FROM NORTHERN CA/SOUTHERN ORE INTO PARTS OF THE NORTHERN GREAT BASIN
AND NORTHERN ROCKIES THROUGH TUE/DAY 5. AN UPPER RIDGE WILL PERSIST
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK ACROSS THE WESTERN STATES AND MID-LEVEL
MOISTURE BENEATH THE RIDGE WILL MIGRATE NORTH AND EAST. AT THE SAME
TIME...THE RIDGE AXIS WILL SLOWLY SHIFT EASTWARD FROM THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST TO THE NORTHERN ROCKIES BY MONDAY/DAY 4 AS A SHORTWAVE
TROUGH DEVELOPS OVER BRITISH COLUMBIA.  AS THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER
SOUTHWEST CANADA DEEPENS AND SHIFTS EASTWARD...THE UPPER RIDGE WILL
FLATTEN AND BE SUPPRESSED SOUTHWARD TOWARD THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AND
SOUTHWESTERN U.S. THIS MAY ALLOW FOR PERIODS OF BREEZY AND DRY
CONDITIONS FROM PARTS OF THE GREAT BASIN INTO THE CENTRAL ROCKIES
AND ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS TUE/DAY 5 INTO WED/DAY 6...BUT LACK OF
MODEL CONSISTENCY IN WHERE EXACTLY THIS MAY OCCUR RESULTS IN LOW
FORECAST CONFIDENCE FOR DELINEATING ANY AREAS AT THIS TIME.
