   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0232 AM CDT SAT MAY 30 2015

   VALID 311200Z - 011200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   RIDGING ALOFT WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER THE WEST AS IT SLOWLY
   PROGRESSES EWD. IN ITS WAKE...A SHARP SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL PUSH
   ONSHORE THE CA COAST. ACROSS THE ERN CONUS...SEVERAL IMPULSES WILL
   MAINTAIN A BROAD TROUGH OVER THE MS/OH VALLEY AND GREAT LAKES
   REGIONS. THE RESULTANT SFC PATTERN WILL FEATURE WEAKENING LOW
   PRESSURE TRANSITING FROM THE MIDWEST TOWARDS THE NORTHEAST. LEE
   TROUGHING WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE CNTRL/NRN HIGH PLAINS...WHILE LOW
   PRESSURE ALSO EXTENDS FROM THE CO RIVER VALLEY TO THE PAC NW.

   SWLY FLOW ALOFT OVER THE WRN GREAT BASIN AND SURROUNDING AREA WILL
   STRENGTHEN FURTHER FROM THE PREVIOUS DAY...ENHANCING WINDS OVER MUCH
   OF THE REGION /UP TO 20-30 MPH SUSTAINED/. MOREOVER...RH VALUES WILL
   ONCE AGAIN FALL BELOW 10 PERCENT IN MANY LOCATIONS...AS HOT
   CONDITIONS DEVELOP WITH DEEP DIURNAL MIXING/INCREASING TEMPS ALOFT.
   HOWEVER...THE MOST LIKELY AREA FOR CRITICAL METEOROLOGICAL
   CONDITIONS /S-CNTRL NV/ WILL LIKELY STILL BE CHARACTERIZED BY
   GENERALLY UNRECEPTIVE FUELS. FARTHER S/E /I.E. PORTIONS OF AZ/ WHERE
   FUELS ARE SOMEWHAT DRIER...WINDS WILL BE WEAKER...OWING TO THE AREA
   BEING FARTHER REMOVED FROM THE CORE OF STRONGEST WINDS ALOFT. THE
   END RESULT IS THAT NO DELINEATION WILL BE INTRODUCED WITH THE
   CURRENT FORECAST. HOWEVER...IF CONFIDENCE INCREASES REGARDING
   STRONGER WINDS FARTHER SOUTH AND/OR DRIER FUELS FARTHER NORTH...AN
   ELEVATED DELINEATION COULD BECOME NECESSARY.
