   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0323 PM CDT WED AUG 24 2016

   VALID 261200Z - 011200Z

   FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL APPEARS LOW DURING THE DAY 3-8 PERIOD. AN
   UPPER TROUGH WILL REMAIN OVER THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH DAY 4/SAT
   BEFORE WEAK RIDGING OCCURS OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES INTO THE
   CENTRAL/SRN ROCKIES. QUASI-ZONAL TO SLIGHTLY SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL
   REMAIN OVER THE PAC NW AND NORTHERN ROCKIES WITH ANOTHER TROUGH
   EXPECTED TO MOVE INLAND AROUND THE END OF THE PERIOD. SEVERAL
   SHORTWAVE IMPULSES MIGRATING THROUGH THIS SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW FROM
   NORTHERN CA THROUGH THE NORTHERN ROCKIES COULD LEAD TO AREAS OF
   ELEVATED WIND POTENTIAL...BUT CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW IN WHEN/WHERE
   THIS WILL OCCUR DUE TO CONTINUED RUN-TO-RUN AND CROSS-MODEL
   INCONSISTENCY.  OVERALL...THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN DOES NOT APPEAR
   FAVORABLE FOR WIDESPREAD FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
