DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0322 PM CST MON DEC 05 2016

VALID 071200Z - 131200Z

THE OVERALL SYNOPTIC PATTERN WILL FOSTER A POWERFUL...CYCLONICALLY
CURVED MID/UPPER JET OVER MUCH OF THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN U.S. THAT
WILL SLOWLY MOVE EASTWARD TOWARD THE ATLANTIC THROUGH D5/FRI.  AS
THIS OCCURS...THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN WILL GRADUALLY BECOME MORE ZONAL.
AT THE SURFACE...AN EXPANSIVE REGION OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD
SOUTHWARD...ENCOMPASSING MUCH OF THE COUNTRY FROM THE CONTINENTAL
DIVIDE EASTWARD TO THE ATLANTIC WHILE RESULTING AN A COOL/DRY
PATTERN FOR MOST AREAS.  A WEAK OFFSHORE FLOW PATTERN WILL EXIST IN
DRY AREAS OF SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA ON D3/WED...ALTHOUGH THIS WILL
WEAKEN AS LOW PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST AND
IMMEDIATE LEE OF THE ROCKIES FROM D4/THU ONWARD.  THE CENTRAL U.S.
HIGH WILL ALSO GRADUALLY SHIFT EASTWARD DURING THIS TIME.

THE CHANGES IN THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN WILL GENERALLY RESULT IN LOW
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS THROUGHOUT THE EXTENDED.  LOCALLY ELEVATED
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY OCCUR ON D3/WED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
AND ALSO IN EAST-CENTRAL NEW MEXICO ON D5/FRI...ALTHOUGH NEITHER
SCENARIO APPEARS TO BE SEVERE ENOUGH TO MERIT HIGHLIGHTS AT THIS
TIME GIVEN RELATIVELY COOL SURFACE TEMPERATURES.
