Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0309 PM CST Mon Dec 09 2019

Valid 111200Z - 171200Z

A quasi-zonal upper-level pattern is expected during the beginning
of the extended period. Two relatively low-latitude shortwave
troughs are expected to move across the Southeast and southern High
Plains through D5/Friday. Through the week, the upper-level pattern
is expected to evolve into a rather broadly cyclonic regime as the
polar jet stream gets pushed into the southern tier of the CONUS.
Cool temperatures and precipitation will continue to greatly limit
potential for fire ignition and spread. Periodic lee trough
development in the southern High Plains will lead to enhanced
surface winds during the afternoon. However, fuels remain marginal
and RH is not forecast to reach critical thresholds.
