DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0227 PM CST SUN FEB 01 2015

VALID 031200Z - 091200Z

QUIET FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED DURING THE DAY 3-8
PERIOD. MEDIUM RANGE GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN A MEAN TROUGH
EAST OF THE ROCKIES WITH AN AMPLIFIED RIDGE BUILDING OVER THE
WESTERN STATES. A SHORTWAVE IMPULSE WILL TRACK S/SE ALONG THE
NRN/CNTRL ROCKIES INTO THE PLAINS ON DAY 4/5 - WED/THU. AN
ACCOMPANYING SURFACE COLD FRONT WILL DIVE SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE
CENTRAL INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND GUSTY NORTH
WINDS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS PARTS OF KS/OK/TX. HOWEVER...COOL
TEMPERATURES AND CLOUD COVER WILL PRECLUDE RH VALUES FROM REACHING
CRITICAL CRITERIA. ADDITIONALLY...RECENT RAINFALL WILL FURTHER LIMIT
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS. BY NEXT WEEKEND...ANOTHER LEE LOW AND COLD
FRONT WILL TRAVERSE THE SOUTHERN PLAINS...LEADING TO ANOTHER PERIOD
OF BREEZY CONDITIONS. WARMER AND DRIER WEATHER LEADING UP TO THIS
EVENT MAY RESULT IN SOME ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN PLAINS BUT CONFIDENCE IS LOW IN THIS SCENARIO AT THIS TIME.
