DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0327 PM CST TUE JAN 27 2015

VALID 291200Z - 041200Z

SHORTWAVE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH THE MIDWEST AND OFF THE
MID-ATLANTIC COAST ON D3/THU WITH ANOTHER SHORTWAVE FOLLOWING
CLOSELY IN THE WAKE OF THE FIRST. SOME GUSTY NORTH WINDS ARE
POSSIBLE IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SRN
PLAINS ON D3/THU BUT DECENT LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE AND COOL TEMPERATURES
WILL KEEP RH VALUES ABOVE 30 PERCENT.

FARTHER W...SLOW MOVING UPPER TROUGH WILL BEGIN MOVING OVER CNTRL CA
WHILE DEEPENING INTO A CLOSED LOW. THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE SLOWLY EWD...MOVING INTO AZ BY EARLY D5/SAT. ON D5/SAT...A
SERIES OF SHORTWAVE TROUGHS EMBEDDED WITHIN THE WRN PERIPHERY OF THE
UPPER LOW WILL ACT TO PULL A PORTION OF THIS SYSTEM SWD/SWWD INTO
NRN BAJA WHILE A LEAD SHORTWAVE EJECTS ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS. SRN
PORTION OF THE TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE SRN BAJA
PENINSULA ON D6/SUN WHILE A NRN-STREAM SHORTWAVE MOVES ACROSS THE
PLAINS. THE SLOW EWD PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM WILL AID IN THE
DEVELOPMENT OF PRECIPITATION ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHWEST AND SRN
PLAINS FROM D4/FRI THROUGH D6/SUN.

OVERALL...FIRE WEATHER THREAT APPEARS LOW THROUGHOUT THE EXTENDED
PERIOD.
