   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0218 PM CST MON DEC 22 2014

   VALID 241200Z - 301200Z

   NO LARGE SCALE FIRE WEATHER AREAS ARE EXPECTED. 

   THE CNTRL U.S. UPPER TROUGH WILL MOVE EWD...THEN LIFT OUT ACROSS THE
   NERN U.S. BY THE END OF THE WEEK.  AS IT DOES SO...ANOTHER STRONG
   UPPER SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE CNTRL PLAINS BY THE END OF THE WEEK
   BEFORE ALSO LIFTING OUT TO THE NORTHEAST BY THE END OF THE WEEKEND. 
   FINALLY...YET ANOTHER UPPER TROUGH WILL BUILD INTO THE SOUTHWEST BY
   EARLY NEXT WEEK.  

   SEVERAL PLUNGES OF COLD SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE CENTRAL AND
   EASTERN STATES WILL KEEP MOST AREAS EAST OF THE ROCKIES COOL TO
   COLD.  ALTHOUGH THE SURFACE PRESSURE PATTERN WILL TEND TO FAVOR
   STRONGER WINDS...WITH THE COOL TO COLD AFTERNOON HIGHS...HUMIDITY
   SHOULD REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS AND MOST AREAS HAVE MOIST FUELS.
    
   THE TEXAS PANHANDLE WILL SEE BREEZY SWLY WINDS ON THURSDAY/DAY 4 BUT
   WITH HIGHS ONLY IN THE 50S.  HUMIDITY WILL BE IN THE 25 TO 35
   PERCENT RANGE SO WILL NOT OUTLOOK ANY AREA.  

   BY LATE FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND...ANOTHER SURFACE HIGH BUILDING INTO
   THE GREAT BASIN MAY LEAD TO SOME LIGHT OFFSHORE WINDS FOR SRN
   CA...HOWEVER FUELS ARE MOIST AND IT WILL BE COOL TO MILD WITH
   HUMIDITY REMAINING ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS.
