Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0318 PM CDT Mon Jun 26 2017

Valid 281200Z - 041200Z

A band of low-amplitude, enhanced flow aloft will remain situated
primarily over the northern states into early next week. However,
some southward protrusion of this enhanced flow will persist over a
dry, deep, and well-mixed boundary layer on Day-3/Wednesday across
portions of the western states. This will yield an increased
fire-weather risk from parts of the southwest states to the vicinity
of the central Great Basin, with critical fire-weather conditions
expected across northern AZ, northwestern NM, southern UT, and
extreme southwest CO for Day-3/Wednesday. Thereafter, for
Day-4/Thursday through Day-8/Monday, the bulk of model solutions
indicate minimal overlap of enhanced winds and low RH (relegated to
portions of the western states), with some differences noted among
model solutions regarding the large-scale pattern evolution,
precluding probabilistic delineations.
