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.
