   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0322 PM CDT SUN AUG 02 2015

   VALID 041200Z - 101200Z

   MEDIUM RANGE GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO INDICATE A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN IN
   NORTHERN STREAM FLOW ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CONUS.  THIS
   WILL RESULT IN THE CONTINUED SOUTHWARD SUPPRESSION OF AN UPPER RIDGE
   OVER THE SOUTHWEST/SOUTH-CENTRAL STATES THROUGH MOST OF THE FORECAST
   PERIOD. AS A SERIES OF SHORTWAVE TROUGHS MIGRATE FROM THE PACIFIC
   NORTHWEST ACROSS THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS TO THE GREAT
   LAKES...SOME ENHANCED DEEP LAYER WESTERLY FLOW WILL BE POSSIBLE NEAR
   THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AND ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS. THIS MAY LEAD TO SOME
   ELEVATED CONDITIONS BUT WILL BE DEPENDENT ON AVAILABLE FUELS...WHICH
   MAY BECOME MORE ABUNDANT TOWARD THE LATTER HALF OF THE PERIOD.
   CONFIDENCE IN WHERE/WHEN THIS MAY OCCUR IS RATHER LOW AT THIS POINT
   SO NO AREAS WILL BE DELINEATED AT THIS TIME. OTHERWISE...ISOLATED TO
   WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE
   NORTHWEST/NORTHERN ROCKIES ON DAY 3/TUESDAY AHEAD OF THE FIRST
   SHORTWAVE IMPULSE COMING OUT OF SOUTHWEST CANADA. WHERE FUELS ARE
   DRY...A THREAT FOR NEW IGNITIONS WILL EXIST.
