DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0308 AM CST FRI MAR 06 2015

VALID 071200Z - 081200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A SPLIT-FLOW REGIME WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE CONUS ON
SATURDAY...WITH CYCLONIC FLOW PERSISTING ACROSS THE MIDWEST AND
NORTHEAST...AND RIDGING ALONG MOST OF THE WEST COAST. A WEAK
MID/UPPER LOW WILL SLOWLY TRANSLATE E/NE ACROSS THE SWRN
CONUS...LIKELY PHASING WITH THE NRN STREAM BY THE END OF THE PERIOD.
WHILE AN OFFSHORE GRADIENT WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS SRN CA SATURDAY
MORNING...WINDS WILL TRANSITION TO MORE OF AN ONSHORE FLOW DURING
THE DAY...AS SFC TROUGHING DEVELOPS ACROSS THE SWRN CONUS IN
RESPONSE TO THE AFOREMENTIONED UPPER LOW. FURTHERMORE...A
CONTINUATION OF GENERALLY UNRECEPTIVE FUELS WILL PRECLUDE ANY
WIDESPREAD FIRE WX THREAT EARLY IN THE DAY.

SFC HIGH PRESSURE WILL GRADUALLY BUILD ACROSS THE SERN CONUS...WHILE
A CLIPPER LOW TRANSLATES EWD FROM THE GREAT LAKES TOWARDS NEW
ENGLAND. A TROUGH EXTENDING SWD FROM THIS LOW WILL INCREASE THE SFC
PRES GRADIENT ACROSS THE CAROLINAS DURING THE DAY...PROVIDING SOME
ENHANCEMENT TO THE WINDS...AMIDST A RELATIVELY DRY AIR MASS.
HOWEVER...UNRECEPTIVE FUELS WILL LIKELY KEEP THE FIRE WX THREAT LOW.
ELSEWHERE...THE OVERLAP OF STRONG WINDS AND LOW RH VALUES IS NOT
FORECAST.
