   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A LOW AMPLITUDE TROUGH OVER THE WRN U.S. WILL CONTINUE TO SAG
   SEWD...AND WILL BREAK DOWN A WEAK UPPER RIDGE OVER THE CENTRAL U.S. 
   THE APPROACHING TROUGH WILL ALLOW RH LEVELS TO RISE OVER THE SWRN
   DESERTS.  FURTHER E...LOWERING PRESSURES OVER THE HIGH PLAINS WILL
   COMBINE WITH HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST TO CAUSE INCREASING SLY WINDS
   ALTHOUGH RH LEVELS WILL NOT BE PARTICULARLY LOW. 
   ELSEWHERE...RELATIVELY LOW RH LEVELS AND COOL TEMPERATURES CAN BE
   EXPECTED WITH HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GULF COAST STATES...WHILE
   BLIZZARD CONDITIONS MATERIALIZE OVER NEW ENGLAND LATE IN THE PERIOD.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0219 AM CST SAT DEC 06 2003
   
   VALID 071200Z - 081200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER TROUGH OVER THE W WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE SLOWLY EWD...CAUSING A
   BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE TO DEEPEN FROM ERN CO INTO SD.  SLY WINDS
   WILL RESPOND TO THIS LOWERING OF PRESSURE AND INCREASE ACROSS THE
   PLAINS...WHILE WLY DOWNSLOPE FLOW STRENGTHENS ACROSS WY / CO / NM. 
   A MODIFIED AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL MAKE FOR VERY DRY CONDITIONS
   OVER THE SERN U.S...BUT WINDS WILL BE LIGHT.
   
   ...SERN STATES...
   A DRY AIR MASS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE SUNDAY WITH HIGH PRESSURE
   CENTERED OVER SRN GA AT 00Z.  TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMER COMPARED
   TO PREVIOUS DAY...WITH HIGHS RANGING FROM THE MID 50S ACROSS MS / AL
   / NRN GA / SC...AND LOWER 60S F FROM SRN GA INTO NRN FL.  AS A
   RESULT RH LEVELS WILL DROP INTO THE 25-30 PERCENT RANGE AT PEAK
   HEATING.  INVERSION HEIGHTS WILL STILL BE LOW HOWEVER...RANGING FROM
   2500-3000 FT OVER MS/AL/ WRN FL PANHANDLE TO 3000-3500 FT OVER THE
   ERN FL PANHANDLE...GA AND N FL.  WINDS WILL BE LIGHT OUT OF THE NW
   WITH SPEEDS TO 10 MPH. 
   
   ...ERN CO / NM / FAR WRN TX...
   INCREASING WLY FLOW ALOFT AND STRENGTHENING LEE TROUGH WILL COMBINE
   TO CAUSE DRY DOWNSLOPE WINDS AND TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO THE 60S F
   NORTH TO THE 70S F IN ERN NM AND WRN TX.  SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS OF
   20-30 MPH WILL OCCUR DURING THE AFTERNOON.  RH LEVELS ARE FORECAST
   TO LARGELY BE BETWEEN 20 AND 30 PERCENT...BUT AREAS FROM SERN CO
   INTO NERN NM WILL LIKELY SEE READINGS NEAR 15 PERCENT AT PEAK
   HEATING...AS FAVORABLE DOWNSLOPE AREAS TRANSPORT DRY AIR TO THE
   SURFACE.  RH LEVELS WILL THEN RECOVER QUICKLY AFTER SUNSET WITH
   LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS.
