   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0308 AM CDT WED OCT 26 2005
   
   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A DEEP UPPER TROUGH WILL BE MAINTAINED OVER THE ERN CONUS THROUGH
   THE PERIOD...AS ADDITIONAL SHORTWAVE ENERGY MOVES SWD THROUGH GREAT
   LAKES REGION. THIS WILL AID IN REINFORCING SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
   CENTERED OVER THE MS VALLEY. LOW RH READINGS WILL AGAIN OCCUR OVER
   MUCH OF THE SERN STATES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS HIGH. HOWEVER...LIGHT
   WINDS WILL PRECLUDE A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT. ELSEWHERE ACROSS
   THE NATION...LIGHT WINDS AND/OR MODERATE TO HIGH RH READINGS WILL
   PRECLUDE ANY FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
   
   ...SERN STATES...
   MIN RH READINGS FROM 25-35 PERCENT WILL OCCUR TODAY AS LOW DEWPOINTS
   COMBINE WITH SEASONABLY COOL TEMPERATURES. HOWEVER...SUSTAINED NLY
   WINDS GENERALLY BELOW 10 MPH WILL LIMIT ANY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
   THREAT.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0309 AM CDT WED OCT 26 2005
   
   VALID 271200Z - 281200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER PATTERN ACROSS THE CONUS WILL REMAIN HIGHLY
   MERIDIONAL...AS A DEEP UPPER TROUGH WILL BE LOCATED OVER THE ERN
   SEABOARD AND UPPER RIDGING EXISTS OVER THE PLAINS. MEANWHILE AN
   UPPER TROUGH WILL RESIDE IN THE WEST. AT THE SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE
   WILL BE IN CONTROL OVER MOST OF THE ERN HALF OF THE NATION. LOW
   DEWPTS WILL BE A RESULT WITH LOW MIN RH READING IN THE PLAINS AND
   SERN STATES WHERE TEMPERATURES WILL BE MILD. HOWEVER...IN BOTH OF
   THESE AREAS THE SUSTAINED WINDS WILL BE UNDER CRITICAL LEVELS
   PREVENTING ANY FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
   
   ...SERN STATES...
   MIN RH READINGS WILL BE FROM 25-35 PERCENT AS THE CENTER OF A LARGE
   AREA OF SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY MOVES TOWARDS THE REGION. AS ON
   DAY ONE...SUSTAINED WINDS WILL AVERAGE LESS THAN 10 MPH PRECLUDING A
   CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
   
   ...CENTRL/NRN PLAINS...
   AHEAD OF THE DEEPENING UPPER TROUGH OVER THE PAC NW/NRN ROCKIES...A
   SURFACE LEE TROUGH WILL INTENSIFY OVER THE NRN/CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS.
   WITH SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE MS VALLEY....A MODEST
   PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL DEVELOP AS A RESULT. THIS INCREASE IN
   PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL LEAD TO SUSTAINED SSELY WINDS FROM 15-20 MPH
   WITH HIGHER GUSTS DURING THE AFTERNOON.  THE SLY COMPONENT OF THE
   WINDS WILL ALLOW FOR ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S TO LOWER
   70S. COMBINED WITH LOW DEWPOINTS...MIN RH READINGS FROM 25-30
   PERCENT WILL BE COMMONPLACE OVER THE REGION. THE COMBINATION OF
   MARGINAL WINDS/RH READINGS WILL PRECLUDE A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
   THREAT.
