DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0301 PM CST WED DEC 17 2014

VALID 191200Z - 251200Z

UPPER TROUGH ACROSS THE PLAINS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD --
12Z/FRI -- WILL CONTINUE EWD WHILE BECOMING INCREASINGLY
NEGATIVELY-TILTED. UPSTREAM UPPER RIDGE WILL ALSO PROGRESS EWD WHILE
DEAMPLIFYING...LARGELY IN RESPONSE TO PHASED SHORTWAVE TROUGHS
EMANATING FROM STRONG NE PACIFIC JET STREAK MOVING QUICKLY ACROSS
THE WRN CONUS. LEAD TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE NEWD INTO THE
NORTHEAST WHILE CYCLONIC FLOW AMPLIFIES ACROSS MOST OF THE CONUS AS
THE NE PACIFIC JET STREAK /AND ASSOCIATED SHORTWAVES AHEAD OF IT/
MOVES OVER THE PACIFIC NW ON D5/SUN AND OVER THE NRN AND CNTRL
ROCKIES BY D6/MON. UPPER PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO AMPLIFY
EARLY NEXT WEEK AS UPPER FLOW INCREASES AND RIDGING BUILDS INTO THE
W COAST.

PATTERN FAVORS SOME OFFSHORE WINDS EARLY NEXT WEEK ACROSS SRN CA BUT
CURRENT GUIDANCE KEEPS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT MODEST AND ANTECEDENT
PRECIP HAS MOISTENED FUELS. AS SUCH...NO FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
ANTICIPATED. ELSEWHERE...COOL AND MOIST CONDITIONS WILL PRECLUDE ANY
FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
