DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0235 PM CDT TUE SEP 02 2014

VALID 041200Z - 101200Z

NO LARGE SCALE FIRE WEATHER AREAS ARE CURRENTLY OUTLOOKED.

FOR DAY 3/THUR AND DAY 4/FRI...AN INVERTED TROUGH INITIALLY OFF THE
NW CA COAST MAY SHIFT NWD ALONG THE COAST BEFORE WEAKENING.  A
SURFACE HIGH BUILDING INTO THE NW MAY AID IN STRENGTHENING THE
PRESSURE GRADIENT AND AS A RESULT...THERE IS SOME POSSIBILITY FOR
LIGHT OFFSHORE WINDS ALONG WITH A VERY DRY AIR MASS IN PLACE FOR
NWRN CA AND PORTIONS OF WRN OREGON.  FORECAST PRECIPITABLE WATER FOR
NWRN CA...NWD THROUGH WRN OREGON IS AT OR BELOW 0.25 INCH.  FUELS
REMAIN VERY DRY ACROSS NRN CA WITH MORE OF A MIX OF MOIST AND DRY
FUELS ACROSS WRN OREGON.  AT THIS TIME...EVEN THOUGH THE FUELS ARE
VERY DRY AND THE AIR MASS IS VERY DRY...HAVE NOT OUTLOOKED AN AREA
BASED ON LOWER WIND SPEEDS EXPECTED.  IF LATER MODEL RUNS SUGGEST
HIGHER WINDS SPEEDS...AN AREA MAY BE INCLUDED ON UPDATES.

ELSEWHERE...THE MAIN STORM TRACK WILL RUN ALONG THE NORTHERN TIER OF
STATES.  AS ONE UPPER TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE FAR NRN PLAINS/SRN
CANADA BY THE END OF THE WEEK...A COLD FRONT AND ASSOCIATED SURFACE
HIGH WILL MOVE INTO THE CNTRL PLAINS BY LATE IN THE WEEK AND THEN
SLOWLY EWD THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
