Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0250 AM CDT Thu Jun 29 2017

Valid 291200Z - 301200Z

An upper-level disturbance evident in water vapor satellite imagery
over the Pacific Northwest this morning is expected to move
southeastward across the Intermountain West throughout the day.  As
a result, portions of the central Great Basin and Southwest will
experience modestly enhanced flow aloft during the afternoon.  At
the surface, deepening low pressure near the Texas Panahndle will
enhance the pressure gradient across northern New Mexico.

Utah...western Colorado...
Continued hot and very dry conditions will linger across the region
again today with afternoon RH values expected to fall into the
single digits.  As vertical mixing occurs within a deepening
boundary layer, enhanced flow aloft will be transported downward,
resulting in sustained afternoon westerly surface wind speeds of
15-20 mph.  In the midst of dry fuels, these meteorological
conditions will lead to elevated fire weather concerns.
