   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0231 AM CDT THU AUG 21 2014

   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   EARLY-MORNING WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES A MID-LEVEL CYCLONE
   CENTERED NEAR THE COAST OF SRN CA. THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY
   DRIFT EWD AS A TROUGH IS REINFORCED TO ITS N ACROSS THE NW CONUS. A
   RIDGE DOWNSTREAM WILL EXTEND NWD FROM AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER
   THE SERN CONUS ACROSS PARTS OF THE ERN PLAINS AND MS VALLEY...WHILE
   CYCLONIC FLOW OVERLIES PORTIONS OF THE NORTHEAST. THUNDERSTORMS ARE
   EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS OF THE WRN CONUS...LOCALLY ENHANCED IN
   PROXIMITY TO THE AFOREMENTIONED CYCLONE FROM THE COASTAL RANGES OF
   SRN CA TO THE LOWER CO RIVER VALLEY AND VICINITY. HOWEVER...PW
   VALUES AND LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ARE EXPECTED TO BE SUFFICIENTLY ROBUST
   TO LIMIT THE RISK FOR PURELY DRY THUNDERSTORMS...WITH MOST STORMS
   YIELDING WETTING RAINS. FURTHERMORE...STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED
   TO OVERLAP WITH LOW SFC RH ACROSS THE CONUS. FOR THESE
   REASONS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE NOT BEEN INCLUDED.
