Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

Valid 281200Z - 291200Z

...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR NORTHEAST NEW MEXICO...SOUTHEAST
COLORADO...FAR WESTERN OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE...AND NORTHWEST TEXAS
PANHANDLE...

...Synopsis...
Closed low over the Great Basin will weaken, open up, and begin to
move east on Monday. To the southeast of the main low/trough,
persistent south-southwest mid-level flow will maintain lee
troughing across the central and southern High Plains, albeit
slightly farther east than previous days. The result will once again
be the overlap of strong, gusty surface winds in excess of 20 mph
and minimum relative humidity in the low teens. As such another day
of critical fire-weather conditions across northeast New Mexico,
southeast Colorado, and the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles will
occur. Surrounding the critical, elevated fire-weather concerns will
persist, with the duration of winds in excess of 20 mph being the
mitigating factor for higher-end fire-weather concerns.
