DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0315 PM CDT TUE SEP 23 2014

VALID 251200Z - 011200Z

UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE SLOWLY EWD OVER THE W COAST ON D3/THU
WHILE STRONG SWLY FLOW PERSISTS AHEAD OF IT...EXTENDING FROM CNTRL
CA NEWD INTO WRN MT. SOME LOCALLY ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS FAR SE ORE...N-CNTRL/NE NV...AND SRN ID.
HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES WILL BE MODERATED BY CLOUD COVER AND FUEL
GUIDANCE INDICATES GENERALLY MOIST FUELS. BOTH OF THIS FACTORS ARE
EXPECTED TO KEEP THE OVERALL FIRE WEATHER THREAT LOW AND PRECLUDE
THE NEED FOR AN ELEVATED AREA.

AFTER D3/THU...UPPER TROUGH ALONG THE W COAST SLOWS SIGNIFICANTLY AS
AN UPPER RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE CNTRL AND ERN CONUS AND A BLOCKING
PATTERN DEVELOPS. BY D6/SUN...GUIDANCE INDICATES THE UPPER TROUGH
WILL BEGIN SHIFTING NEWD WHILE ANOTHER SHORTWAVE TROUGH APPROACHES
THE PACIFIC NW.

OVERALL...THIS PATTERN SHOULD KEEP THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT LOW
THROUGH THE EXTENDED PERIOD.
