   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0316 PM CDT SUN SEP 14 2014

   VALID 161200Z - 221200Z

   AN UPPER RIDGE INITIALLY CENTERED OVER THE GREAT BASIN WILL SHIFT
   EWD AND BECOME LESS AMPLIFIED AS BELT OF STRONGER WLYS OVER CANADA
   SHIFTS SWD. AS THIS OCCURS...A PACIFIC UPPER TROUGH WILL APPROACH
   THE WRN CONUS MID-WEEK...AND COULD FOSTER A MODEST INCREASE IN SLY
   WINDS ACROSS PARTS OF ERN ORE AND NERN CA. PRECIPITATION POTENTIAL
   WITH THIS SYSTEM MAY BE LIMITED INLAND DUE TO RICHER MOISTURE LIKELY
   TO BE CONFINED TO NEAR COASTAL PORTIONS OF ORE/WA.

   MEDIUM-RANGE MODEL SOLUTIONS ALSO DEPICT A CUTOFF LOW EVENTUALLY
   EVOLVING FROM THE MID-WEEK WRN CONUS UPPER TROUGH...WHICH WILL
   COINCIDE WITH AN INCREASE IN MOISTURE OVER THE SOUTHWEST AND GREAT
   BASIN IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ODILE. AN
   ACCOMPANYING INCREASE IN TSTMS MAY OCCUR...BUT GIVEN THE DEGREE OF
   MOISTURE IN PLACE AND GENERALLY WEAK FLOW ALOFT...MOST OF THIS
   ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE WET.
