DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0351 PM CST WED NOV 26 2014

VALID 281200Z - 041200Z

RELATIVELY ZONAL MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL ESTABLISH ITSELF ACROSS THE
CONUS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD...AS A TROUGH DEPARTS NEW
ENGLAND TO THE NORTHEAST AND ANOTHER TROUGH PROGRESSES SE ACROSS THE
PAC NW. WITH THE RESULTANT WLY FLOW SITUATED ACROSS THE
ROCKIES...LEE TROUGHING WILL OCCASIONALLY SUPPORT PERIODS OF BREEZY
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE SRN HIGH PLAINS. DOWNSLOPE FLOW AND DEEP
DIURNAL MIXING THIS WEEKEND WILL BRING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY FOR
LOCALLY ELEVATED FIRE WX CONDITIONS. HOWEVER...DETERMINISTIC AND
ENSEMBLE GUIDANCE INDICATE SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS WILL BE MARGINAL
FOR MORE SUBSTANTIAL FIRE WX CONCERNS.

DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS SRN CA INTO AT LEAST THE FIRST
HALF OF THE WEEKEND. ON D4/SAT...STRENGTHENING SW FLOW AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING TROUGH COULD RESULT IN SOME AREAS OF ELEVATED CONDITIONS
ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS AND INTERIOR VALLEYS...WHERE DRY AIR WILL BE
SLOWER TO DEPART. HOWEVER...THE PROBABILITY OF WIDESPREAD CRITICAL
CONDITIONS IS LOW AT THIS TIME.

ELSEWHERE...AREAS OF ENHANCED WINDS WILL FAIL TO OVERLAP AREAS OF
LOW RH.
