ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 191624 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1124 AM CDT Mon Mar 19 2018 Valid 201200Z - 211200Z ...NO CRITICAL AREAS... The previous forecast is on track and no changes are needed. See discussion below for more details. ..Leitman.. 03/19/2018 .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0130 AM CDT Mon Mar 19 2018/ ...Synopsis... A shortwave trough will move eastward across the Southeast on Day 2/Tuesday, while an upper ridge persists over the western CONUS. At the surface, high pressure will be in place over much of the Plains in the wake of an earlier cold front. Some modest lee cyclogenesis appears possible across the southern High Plains as a low-amplitude shortwave trough moves through the upper ridge, and a lee surface trough should extend southward from the low across the southern High Plains. ...Portions of the Southern High Plains... Locally elevated conditions may occur Tuesday afternoon across a small part of east-central NM as modestly enhanced mid-level winds become diurnally mixed the surface and the pressure gradient strengthens slightly with the development of the lee trough. Given an antecedent dry airmass, RH values should fall into the 10-15% by peak afternoon heating, and sustained westerly winds up to 15 mph appear possible. A small elevated area may be needed in a future update if forecast winds strengthen any further. ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
