Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0306 PM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018

Valid 251200Z - 011200Z

Fire weather potential will remain low for much of the Day 3-8
period, though the upper level pattern will become somewhat more
progressive. Cyclonic flow to the east of the Rockies through Day
4/Thu will push further east toward the Atlantic coast as the
western upper ridge shifts east into the Plains through the weekend.
By early next week, an upper trough will deepen over the western
states and stronger deep layer west/southwesterly flow will develop
over portions of the southwest, southern Rockies and Plains. Some
increase in fire weather potential could develop over parts of the
southwestern states in response to the deepening trough, though
confidence is low given 1) periods of precipitation between now and
then and 2) continuing green-up of fuels across the broader
southwest to south-central areas of the U.S.
