NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0303 PM CDT SAT OCT 25 2014

VALID 271200Z - 021200Z

A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN FEATURING AN UPPER TROUGH MOVING FROM THE
ROCKIES EWD INTO THE GREAT LAKES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MIDWEEK. SFC
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN THE WAKE OF THE DEPARTING UPPER TROUGH
OVER THE GREAT BASIN...AND MAY FAVOR A WEAK OFFSHORE SFC PRESSURE
PATTERN THROUGH MUCH OF THE WORKWEEK. CURRENT INDICATIONS ARE WIND
SPEEDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PATTERN WILL BE LIGHT...WITH EXCEPTION
TO OCCASIONAL LOCALIZED GUSTS IN FAVORED TERRAIN-ENHANCED
AREAS...BUT WARM/DRY CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY TO PREVAIL.

ELSEWHERE...GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST ACROSS MOST OF THE
INTERIOR CONUS...WITH PERIODS OF WINDIER CONDITIONS
POSSIBLE...INCLUDING OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS ON MON/D3 IN THE WAKE
OF A COLD FRONT. HOWEVER...SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY
PRECLUDE THE JUXTAPOSITION OF LOW RH AND STRONG WINDS WHERE FUELS
ARE FAVORABLY DRY...WITH GENERALLY LOW FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL
EXPECTED. MORE SUBSTANTIAL AMPLIFICATION OF THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN
COULD OCCUR LATER IN THE WEEK.
