   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0315 PM CST FRI DEC 02 2016

   VALID 041200Z - 101200Z

   THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN FOR MOST OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD WILL
   GENERALLY BE CHARACTERIZED BY A BROAD MID-LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE
   CENTRAL AND EVENTUALLY EASTERN U.S.  SEASONABLY STRONG MID-LEVEL
   FLOW WILL EXIST IN MOST AREAS THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD GIVEN
   THE ACTIVE WESTERLIES.  AT THE SURFACE...A CYCLONE WILL DEEPEN
   RAPIDLY WHILE MOVING NORTH INTO SOUTHERN MANITOBA ON D4/MON...WHILE A
   VERY STRONG AND EXPANSIVE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE SPREADS
   SOUTHEASTWARD FROM THE NORTHERN ROCKIES INTO THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN
   STATES.  THIS WILL RESULT IN A SEASONABLY COLD PATTERN THAT WILL
   INHIBIT LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS FROM DEVELOPING.  A FEW
   PERIODS OF OFFSHORE FLOW MAY OCCUR IN COASTAL RANGES OF SOUTHERN
   CALIFORNIA...ALTHOUGH COOL TEMPERATURES AND AREAS OF UNFAVORABLE
   FUELS SUGGEST THAT HIGHLIGHTS WILL NOT BE NEEDED THERE FOR THIS
   FORECAST.
