DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0403 PM CDT SAT MAY 23 2015

VALID 251200Z - 311200Z

LARGE-SCALE FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS APPEAR TO BE MINIMAL THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD.

A SERIES SHORT-WAVE TROUGHS ARE EXPECTED TO DEAMPLIFY AS THEY MOVE
THROUGH A LARGER-SCALE WESTERN UNITED STATES TROUGH INTO THE
CENTRAL/EASTERN UNITED STATES. THIS PATTERN WILL PROMOTE SEASONABLY
COOL CONDITIONS ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND PERIODIC PRECIPITATION
CHANCES ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREAS EAST OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS. THE
EXCEPTION TO THIS WILL BE ACROSS THE FAR SOUTHEAST PART OF THE
UNITED STATES WHICH WILL REMAIN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE BERMUDA
HIGH. NUMERICAL GUIDANCE ALSO DEPICTS RELATIVELY WEAK
SURFACE-PRESSURE GRADIENTS ACROSS MUCH OF THE COUNTRY...WHICH WILL
LIMIT THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG SURFACE WINDS. THE COMBINATION OF
THESE FACTORS WILL ACT TO LIMIT THE OVERALL FIRE-WEATHER THREAT.
