   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0221 AM CST SUN DEC 21 2014

   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE PLAINS...AS THE LEADING
   EDGE OF AN EXTENSIVE WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM ADVANCES SEWD ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE CNTRL ROCKIES. IN RESPONSE...A
   SFC TROUGH WILL STRENGTHEN IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES. THE ATTENDANT
   ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT SHOULD PROMOTE AREAS OF MODERATE TO
   LOCALLY STRONG SFC WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SWRN STATES TO THE
   CNTRL/SRN HIGH PLAINS. IN THESE AREAS...MODEST DIURNAL RH REDUCTIONS
   WILL BE AUGMENTED BY DOWNSLOPE-FLOW-ENCOURAGED WARMING/DRYING.
   HOWEVER...WITHOUT A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...AND WITHOUT STRONGER SFC
   WINDS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS ARE UNNECESSARY.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0222 AM CST SUN DEC 21 2014

   VALID 221200Z - 231200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE CNTRL CONUS ON
   D2/MON. THIS WILL OCCUR AS A WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM SHIFTS SEWD ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF THE ERN GREAT BASIN AND ROCKIES...AND A RIDGE BUILDS
   INTO PORTIONS OF THE NWRN CONUS. MEANWHILE...STRENGTHENING
   SUBSIDENCE UPSTREAM FROM THE TROUGH WILL ENCOURAGE SFC RIDGING FROM
   PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE HIGH PLAINS IN THE WAKE OF A COLD
   FRONT THAT WILL ADVANCE SWD/SEWD. DESPITE AREAS OF STRONG WINDS
   OCCURRING ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT...RH VALUES ARE NOT FORECAST
   TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS WITHOUT
   WARMER/DRIER CONDITIONS. ALSO...THE AFOREMENTIONED GREAT BASIN SFC
   RIDGING WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY ENHANCED NELY TO ELY FLOW OVER THE
   SRN CA COASTAL RANGES/ADJACENT FOOTHILLS. HOWEVER...WITHOUT A
   WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...RH REDUCTIONS WILL BE HINDERED. ALSO...FUEL
   MOISTENING OWING TO RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL MITIGATE THE
   FIRE-WEATHER RISK. AS SUCH...NO FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN
   INCLUDED.
