A SPLIT-FLOW PATTERN WILL PERSIST ACROSS MOST OF THE CONUS THROUGH
AT LEAST EARLY NEXT WEEK...MAINTAINING A SERIES OF SRN STREAM
UPPER-LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVING ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND SRN PLAINS.
PERIODS OF INCREASED S TO SWLY WINDS WILL OCCUR ON SAT/D3 AND SUN/D4
OVER PARTS OF SRN AZ AND NM...BUT LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES
BOTH WIND SPEEDS AND RH VALUES WILL BE MARGINAL FOR A CRITICAL FIRE
WEATHER THREAT...AND TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN MILD. SFC HIGH
PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE CNTRL/NRN PLAINS AND BE ASSOCIATED
WITH DRY BUT COOLER CONDITIONS...WHILE RICHER GULF MOISTURE SLOSHES
EACH DAY ACROSS TX AND THE SRN PLAINS THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK. A MIDLEVEL RIDGE WILL BECOME DOMINANT BY MID-WEEK ACROSS THE
WRN/CNTRL CONUS...BEFORE ANOTHER AMPLIFYING LARGE-SCALE TROUGH
APPROACHES THE PACIFIC COAST. THIS COULD RESULT IN SOME FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS OVER PARTS OF THE SOUTHWEST ON THU/D8...BUT UNCERTAINTY IN
THE FINER-SCALE DETAILS REMAINS HIGH.
