DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0258 PM CST SAT JAN 24 2015

VALID 261200Z - 011200Z

AMPLIFIED WRN RIDGE/ERN TROUGH PATTERN IS EXPECTED AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD -- 12Z/MON.  WRN RIDGE WILL GRADUALLY
DEAMPLIFY AND SHIFT EWD AS A CLOSED LOW INITIALLY OFF THE SRN CA
COAST TRAVELS NEWD...REACHING THE GREAT BASIN BY LATE D4/TUE.
REMNANT OF THIS UPPER LOW IS THEN EXPECTED TO CONTINUE EWD INTO THE
CNTRL PLAINS WHILE PHASING WITH ANOTHER SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING SEWD
FROM THE CANADIAN PRAIRIE PROVINCES INTO THE NRN PLAINS. UNCERTAINTY
INCREASES AFTER D6/THU WITH MODELS SUGGESTING DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS
REGARDING THE PROGRESSION OF THESE PHASED SHORTWAVES AND THE
DEVELOPMENT OF ANOTHER UPPER LOW OFF THE NRN BAJA/SRN CA COAST.

SRN CA OFFSHORE WIND EVENT SHOULD END ON D3/MON AS THE UPPER LOW
AND ASSOCIATED PRECIPITATION MOVE INTO THE REGION. SOME GUSTY WINDS
ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE PLAINS D4/TUE AND D5/WED BUT RH VALUES ARE
EXPECTED TO STAY ABOVE 20 PERCENT WITH ANY FIRE WEATHER THREAT
REMAINING LOCALIZED.
