DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0131 AM CDT WED AUG 24 2016

VALID 241200Z - 251200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
FLOW ALOFT OVER THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST WILL WEAKEN SUBSTANTIALLY
DURING THE DAY TODAY...AS WEAK DISTURBANCES LINGER OVER IDAHO AND
ARIZONA/NEW MEXICO AND A STRONGER DISTURBANCE MOVES TOWARD THE
WESTERN GREAT LAKES.  MEANWHILE...STOUT UPPER RIDGING WILL REMAIN IN
PLACE ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES.  AT THE SURFACE...COOLER AIR
WILL FILTER INTO AREAS OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AS HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS INTO THAT AREA...WHILE A WEAK SURFACE LOW REMAINS NEARLY
STATIONARY OVER NORTHERN COLORADO.

THE NET RESULT OF THIS SYNOPTIC PATTERN IS A REDUCED FIRE WEATHER
THREAT IN DRY AREAS OF THE WEST...PRIMARILY DUE TO COOLER
TEMPERATURES IN MANY AREAS AND A LACK OF WIDESPREAD AREAS OF 15 MPH
OR GREATER SURFACE FLOW.  AS SUCH...NO AREAS WILL BE INTRODUCED FOR
THIS OUTLOOK.
