NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0336 PM CDT THU MAY 23 2013
VALID 251200Z - 311200Z
ALTHOUGH MODEL SOLUTIONS DIVERGE WITH TIME...THE OVERALL TREND OF
THE MODELS IS TO BUILD AN EASTERN U.S. UPPER RIDGE WITH A WEST COAST
TROUGH ADVANCING EWD. THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE IS IN THE INTENSITY AND
SPEED OF THIS WEST COAST UPPER TROUGH. MOST OF ARIZONA AND THE
WESTERN HALF OF NEW MEXICO WILL REMAIN SEASONABLY WARM/HOT AND DRY
WITH EPISODIC PERIODS IN INCREASED AFTERNOON SWLY WINDS. THE AREA
REMAINS IN LONG TERM DROUGHT WITH VERY DRY FUELS. SOME
PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED ON DAYS 3-4/SAT-SUN ACROSS THE EASTERN
ONE/THIRD OF NEW MEXICO AND THE TEXAS PANHANDLE.
MODELS ARE IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT FOR DAY 3/SAT WITH A CRITICAL
AREA ACROSS NRN AZ/NW NM/SW CO AND SRN UT FOR STRONG SWLY WINDS/WARM
CONDITIONS AND LOW HUMIDITY. SURROUNDING THIS AREA WILL BE AN AREA
OF ELEVATED FIRE CONDITIONS WITH LESSER WIND SPEED EXPECTED.
FROM DAYS 4-8/SUN-THUR...SOME PERIODS OF ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER
THREAT WILL EXIST. HOWEVER...BASED ON MODEL DIFFERENCES IN THE
ADVANCING WEST COAST TROUGH...CANNOT HIGHLIGHT ANY CRITICAL AREA IN
THE SOUTHWEST AFTER DAY 3. PORTIONS OF ARIZONA AND THE WESTERN HALF
OF NEW MEXICO WILL HAVE ELEVATED FIRE CONDITIONS IN THE AFTERNOONS.
