   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0252 AM CST THU DEC 08 2005
   
   VALID 091200Z - 101200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   SFC HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE ERN HALF OF THE NATION WILL BE REPLACED
   BY A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THAT WILL MOVE OUT OF CANADA. WLY
   DOWNSLOPE FLOW IN ASSOCIATION WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL AID IN A WARMING
   TREND OVER THE PLAINS STATES. DESPITE INCREASING WLY WINDS OVER THE
   NRN HIGH PLAINS...TEMPERATURES WILL BE TOO LOW /40S/ TO WARRANT ANY
   HIGH FIRE DANGER OR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT. MEANWHILE...THE
   UPPER LOW OFF THE CA COAST IS FORECAST TO BECOME STATIONARY. A
   SLIGHT INCREASE IN OFFSHORE LOW LEVEL FLOW AND DECREASE IN CLOUD
   COVER WILL SUPPORT LOWERING RH READINGS THAN ON DAY ONE. BUT
   SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS WILL BE INSUFFICIENT /AOB 20 MPH/ FOR A
   CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
