DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK

VALID 201200Z - 211200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
THE MID-LEVEL FLOW PATTERN WILL CONTINUE TO AMPLIFY THROUGHOUT THE
PERIOD AS A RIDGE BUILDS ACROSS WESTERN CANADA AND A TROUGH
CONTINUES TO DEEPEN ACROSS THE CENTRAL/EASTERN UNITED STATES. AT THE
SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL OVERSPREAD THE NORTHERN PLAINS IN THE
WAKE OF A SURFACE COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE DIGGING MID-LEVEL
TROUGH.

AS THE AFOREMENTIONED SURFACE HIGH BUILDS INTO THE UNITED STATES...A
WEAK TROUGH/LOW SHOULD BE MAINTAINED OFF THE COAST OF NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA AND OREGON. THIS WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASING
SURFACE-PRESSURE GRADIENT ACROSS SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST. THIS INCREASING SURFACE-PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL RESULT IN
BREEZY OFFSHORE FLOW. AT THIS TIME...RELATIVE-HUMIDITY VALUES SHOULD
REMAIN HIGH ENOUGH TO PRECLUDE LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
HOWEVER...AN ELEVATED AREA COULD BECOME NECESSARY SHOULD LOWER
RELATIVE-HUMIDITY VALUES BECOME EXPECTED.
