ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 220635 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0135 AM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017 Valid 231200Z - 241200Z ...NO CRITICAL AREAS... ...Synopsis... A large-scale upper trough/low centered over the Great Basin will continue to move slowly eastward across the western CONUS on Day 2/Saturday. An upper ridge will persist over much of the eastern CONUS. While enhanced mid-level winds will remain present over portions of the Southwest into the High Plains Saturday afternoon, RH values behind a surface cold front are generally expected to remain above critical levels. Locally elevated fire weather conditions may occur across parts of northern AZ and southeastern UT where RH values could become lowered near 20% in conjunction with strong/gusty surface winds. However, only marginally receptive to unreceptive fuels across this region and cooler temperatures behind the surface cold front preclude the introduction of an elevated area at this time. ..Gleason.. 09/22/2017 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
