DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0217 AM CDT FRI APR 18 2014

VALID 181200Z - 191200Z

...SYNOPSIS...
A SRN STREAM UPPER LOW APPROACHING THE SRN CA COAST WILL SLOWLY MOVE
EWD...WITH A PLUME OF MIDLEVEL MOISTURE OVERSPREADING THE SOUTHWEST
AND SRN ROCKIES. NRN STREAM WILL REMAIN MORE ACTIVE AS A SERIES OF
PROGRESSIVE SHORTWAVE TROUGHS MOVE ACROSS THE NRN ROCKIES AND UPPER
GREAT LAKES. AT THE SFC...SLY FLOW WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE PLAINS ON
THE WRN PERIPHERY OF HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED NEAR THE MS VALLEY...AND
LOW PRESSURE WILL DEEPEN ACROSS THE DAKOTAS.

...FOUR CORNERS AREA...
MODEST MIDLEVEL MOISTENING AHEAD OF THE AFOREMENTIONED PACIFIC LOW
WILL CONTRIBUTE TO PW VALUES INCREASING TO AROUND 0.4-0.5 INCH.
STRONG SFC HEATING WILL ALLOW MARGINAL DESTABILIZATION TO
OCCUR...SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FEW AFTERNOON/EVENING TSTMS.
THE BOUNDARY-LAYER WILL REMAIN QUITE DRY...SO ANY TSTMS THAT DEVELOP
WILL LIKELY PRODUCE LITTLE TO NO PRECIPITATION. TSTM COVERAGE IS
FORECAST TO REMAIN TOO SPARSE TO WARRANT A CRITICAL DRY TSTM RISK.
