   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1027 AM CST SAT FEB 28 2015

   VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   NO CHANGES...SEE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION BELOW.

   ..DEAN.. 02/28/2015

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0319 AM CST SAT FEB 28 2015/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   SWLY FLOW ALOFT DOWNSTREAM FROM A SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER CA/NV WILL
   CONTINUE ACROSS SRN NM AND FAR W TX ON D2/SUN. A SFC HIGH ALONG THE
   E COAST WILL SHIFT EWD THROUGH THE DAY...WHILE ANOTHER BROAD AREA OF
   HIGH PRESSURE MOVES SEWD FROM MT/WY ACROSS THE NRN/CNTRL PLAINS BY
   SUN EVENING. A WEAK SFC LOW SHOULD BE IN PLACE ACROSS SRN AZ AND
   ADJACENT AREAS OF NRN MEXICO SUN MORNING TO THE S OF THE UPPER
   TROUGH. THE RESULTANT MODEST PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THIS SLOWLY
   DEEPENING LOW AND HIGH PRESSURE APPROACHING FROM THE PLAINS WILL
   LIKELY INDUCE SWLY LOW-LEVEL FLOW ACROSS PORTIONS OF SRN NM AND FAR
   W TX SUN AFTERNOON. ASSOCIATED DOWNSLOPE WARMING/DRYING WILL
   CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERED RH VALUES FOR A FEW HOURS. HOWEVER...FUELS ARE
   FORECAST TO REMAIN UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS THIS REGION...AND WITH ONLY
   MARGINALLY ELEVATED WIND SPEEDS EXPECTED...NO AREAS HAVE BEEN
   DELINEATED FOR SRN NM/FAR W TX.
