DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0250 PM CDT SUN MAY 29 2016

VALID 311200Z - 061200Z

LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS SHOULD REMAIN GENERALLY LOW ACROSS
THE CONUS THROUGH MUCH OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD. A MOSTLY
ZONAL/SPLIT FLOW PATTERN INITIALLY OVER THE CONUS ON D3/TUE WILL
TRANSITION TO LARGE-SCALE UPPER RIDGING OVER THE WEST...AND UPPER
TROUGHING OVER MUCH OF THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS BY D6/FRI. AN UPPER LOW
IS FORECAST TO APPROACH THE SRN CA COAST NEXT WEEKEND...WITH SOME
INCREASE IN MID-LEVEL WINDS POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
SOUTHWEST AND GREAT BASIN BY D8/SUN. DIFFERENCES IN THE PLACEMENT
AND TIMING OF THIS UPPER LOW AND ASSOCIATED ENHANCED MID-LEVEL WINDS
LOWER CONFIDENCE IN WHERE STRONG/GUSTY SFC WINDS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS
PARTS OF THE WRN CONUS NEXT WEEKEND. IN ADDITION...FUEL
RECEPTIVENESS MAY REMAIN MARGINAL ACROSS MUCH OF THE GREAT BASIN.
GIVEN THESE UNCERTAINTIES...NO PROBABILITIES HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED
FOR D8/SUN.
