NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0307 PM CST THU MAR 05 2015

VALID 071200Z - 131200Z

UPPER RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN SITUATED ALONG THE WEST COAST
THROUGH THE WEEKEND WHILE GENERALLY CYCLONIC FLOW PERSISTS E OF THE
ROCKIES. UPPER LOW...LIKELY CENTERED OVER SRN AZ/FAR NW MEXICO AT
THE BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD...IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS IT
TRACKS EWD...REACHING CNTRL TX BY 12Z D5/MON. POTENTIAL BREAKDOWN OF
THE UPPER RIDGE IS POSSIBLE BY D6/TUE OR D7/WED BUT MODEL
DIFFERENCES KEEP PREDICTABILITY AFTER D6/TUE LOW. IN
CONTRAST...MODEL CONSENSUS IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THAT THE UPPER
PATTERN E OF THE ROCKIES WILL CONTINUE TO DEAMPLIFY THROUGH THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

SOME OFFSHORE FLOW WILL PERSIST ACROSS SRN CA THROUGH THE WEEKEND
BUT UNRECEPTIVE FUELS WILL MITIGATE ANY POTENTIAL FIRE WEATHER
THREAT. NO WIDESPREAD FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE CURRENTLY EXPECTED
ELSEWHERE.
