DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0203 PM CST FRI JAN 30 2015

VALID 011200Z - 071200Z

FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL GENERALLY REMAIN LOW DURING THE DAY 3-8
PERIOD. WEAK TO MODERATE OFFSHORE WINDS ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
WILL WEAKEN THROUGH THE DAY 3/SUNDAY PERIOD. DESPITE BREEZY
CONDITIONS...RECENT RAINFALL AND GENERALLY UNFAVORABLE FUELS WILL
NEGATE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.

A MEAN TROUGH WILL BE REINFORCED OVER THE EASTERN U.S. WITH SEVERAL
STRONG IMPULSES DIVING SOUTH/SOUTHEAST ALONG THE ROCKIES AND ACROSS
THE PLAINS TO THE EASTERN U.S. GUSTY N/NW WINDS WILL OVERSPREAD
PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS ON DAY 6/WEDNESDAY AS A
STRONG COLD FRONT SLIDES SOUTHWARD. WHILE FUELS STILL HAVE NOT BEGUN
GREEN-UP...RAINFALL IS EXPECTED DURING THE DAY 2/3 PERIOD ACROSS
MUCH OF THE PLAINS. THIS...ALONG WITH HIGH RH VALUES AHEAD OF THE
FRONT...WILL MITIGATE THE THREAT. BY THE END OF THE WEEK...AN
AMPLIFIED UPPER RIDGE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S...LEADING TO
WARMING AND DRYING...BUT STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED.
