DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0316 PM CDT TUE AUG 23 2016

VALID 251200Z - 311200Z

OVERALL FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL DURING THE DAY 3-8 APPEARS LOW.
HOWEVER...THERE STILL REMAINS LARGE RUN-TO-RUN AND CROSS-MODEL
INCONSISTENCIES IN THE MEDIUM RANGE...RESULTING IN MORE UNCERTAINTY
THAN NORMAL DURING THIS FORECAST PERIOD. THAT BEING SAID...OVERALL
DEEP LAYER FLOW IS EXPECTED TO BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE.  THERE MAY BE
SOME PERIODS OF MARGINAL WINDS FROM PARTS OF NORTHERN CA THROUGH THE
NORTHERN ROCKIES AS SEVERAL TROUGHS ARE FORECAST TO TRACK ACROSS THE
NORTHWEST U.S./SOUTHWEST CANADA...AND THIS COULD RESULT IN SOME
ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS BUT CONFIDENCE IN WHEN/WHERE THIS
MAY OCCUR IS LOW. AS SUCH...NO AREAS WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED AT THIS
TIME.
