   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0239 PM CST SAT JAN 31 2015

   VALID 021200Z - 081200Z

   FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW DURING THE DAY 3-8
   PERIOD. A MEAN TROUGH WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE EASTERN U.S. WITH
   SEVERAL REINFORCING SHORTWAVES PASSING THROUGH LARGER-SCALE FLOW. AN
   UPPER RIDGE WILL AMPLIFY ACROSS THE WEST...BRINGING A WARMING AND
   DRYING TREND TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST DESERTS...GREAT BASIN AND
   SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. HOWEVER...OFFSHORE WINDS AND/OR STRONGER INLAND
   WINDS DO NOT APPEAR LIKELY DURING THE PERIOD...LIMITING THE OVERALL
   THREAT. ON WEDNESDAY/DAY 5...A SHORTWAVE IMPULSE WILL TRACK
   SOUTH/SOUTHEAST FROM THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AND INTO THE PLAINS...AND A
   STRONG COLD FRONT WILL DROP SOUTHWARD FROM THE CENTRAL INTO THE
   SOUTHERN PLAINS. THIS WILL LEAD TO SOME WINDY CONDITIONS ACROSS
   PARTS OF KS/OK/TX BUT COOL TEMPERATURES AND CLOUD COVER WILL
   PRECLUDE LOW RH VALUES. ADDITIONALLY...WHILE FUELS HAVE NOT BEGUN TO
   GREEN-UP YET...RECENT RAINFALL WILL FURTHER NEGATE WIDESPREAD FIRE
   WEATHER CONCERNS.
