DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0348 AM CST SAT JAN 31 2015

VALID 311200Z - 011200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A CLOSED LOW OFF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST WILL CONTINUE TO LIFT
NORTHEASTWARD AWAY FROM THE UNITED STATES LEAVING A COLD AIRMASS IN
ITS PLACE. FARTHER WEST...A MID-LEVEL LOW ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN
UNITED STATES WILL CONTINUE TO AID NORTHWARD MOISTURE TRANSPORT INTO
THE SOUTHERN ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND SOUTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS. LARGE
SCALE ASCENT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH WILL COMBINE
WITH THE INCREASING MOISTURE TO PROMOTE WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVER AND
PRECIPITATION ACROSS MUCH  OF THE SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL PARTS OF THE
COUNTRY.

FARTHER WEST...ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...AN OFFSHORE
WIND EVENT /LIKELY ONGOING AT THE START OF THE FORECAST PERIOD/ WILL
WANE DURING THE AFTERNOON BEFORE STRENGTHENING AGAIN OVERNIGHT.

ACROSS ALL AREAS...THE POOR COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS...LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY COUPLED WITH WARM TEMPERATURES...AND DRY FUELS
WILL ACT TO LIMIT FIRE-WEATHER CONDITIONS.
