Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0227 AM CDT Tue Jul 25 2017

Valid 261200Z - 271200Z

The slow-moving midlevel low centered over northern CA is forecast
to begin ejecting northeast on Wednesday, though in general the
pattern will change little compared to previous days, with an upper
ridge persisting across the Southwest into the southern Plains. A
weak surface ridge will settle into portions of the central and
northern Plains in the wake of a cold front, resulting in light
winds and somewhat cooler conditions.

...OR/Northern CA eastward into southern MT...
With the midlevel low expected to shift only slightly eastward
through the first half of the period, scattered thunderstorms are
expected over many of the same areas that have been affected on
previous days. Thermodynamic profiles will may be slightly cooler
and more moist compared to previous days, due to the cumulative
effects of repeated rounds of convection. However, widespread
wetting rainfall is not anticipated, and, due to the potential for
abundant lightning to impact areas where dry fuels remain, some
threat for lightning-related ignitions will continue.
