Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0229 PM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

Valid 261200Z - 021200Z

Fire weather potential appears low at this time during the Day 3-8
period. The mean upper level trough east of the Rockies early in the
period will shift east toward the Atlantic coast Day 5/Sat. As this
occurs, an amplified ridge will migrate east across the Rockies and
into the Plains. In the wake of the upper ridge, an upper trough
will dig across the western U.S. during the second half of the
forecast period. As the trough deepens and slowly moves east toward
the Rockies by the end of the period, some strong winds and lowered
RH conditions could occur across parts of the Four Corners into the
adjacent central/southern High Plains during the Day 6-8/Sun-Tue
time frame. However, fire weather concerns are expected to be
mitigated by periods of precipitation across parts of the southwest
to south-central states, in addition to largely unfavorable fuels as
springtime green-up continues.
