   VALID 111200Z - 121200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN FAIRLY STATIONARY OVER THE
   GREAT LAKES REGION...BRINGING PRECIPITATION TO THAT REGION...AND TO
   THE NORTHEAST UNITED STATES. A COLD FRONT WILL STRETCH FROM THIS
   SYSTEM SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE EASTERN U.S. INTO THE GULF OF
   MEXICO...AND WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARY FOCUS FOR THE PRECIPITATION
   ALONG AND AHEAD OF IT. ADDITIONALLY...A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL
   REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE WESTERN TWO THIRDS OF THE U.S...BRINGING A
   RELATIVELY MILD AND DRY AIRMASS TO THE REGION. IN THE
   SOUTHWEST...TEMPERATURES WILL BE FAIRLY WARM...AND WITH THE DRY AIR
   IN PLACE...A SLIGHT FIRE WEATHER DANGER WILL EXIST.
   
   ...AZ/NM...
   
   AS IN PREVIOUS DAYS...AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES IN SOME REGIONS WILL
   CLIMB INTO THE 80S F AND 90S F...WITH LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES
   IN THE UPPER SINGLE DIGITS INTO THE TEENS. HOWEVER...WIND SPEEDS
   WILL AGAIN REMAIN VERY LIGHT WITH VALUES APPROACHING 5 TO 10 KTS.
   WHILE A DROUGHT PERSISTS IN THE AREA...LACK OF SIGNIFICANT WIND
   SPEEDS WILL HELP TO KEEP THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT TO A MINIMUM.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0453 AM CDT THU MAY 11 2006
   
   VALID 121200Z - 131200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE GREAT LAKES REGION AND NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES WILL CONTINUE
   TO BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A RELATIVELY STATIONARY LOW PRESSURE
   SYSTEM...BRINGING SOME THUNDERSTORMS AND RAIN TO THE REGION
   THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. IN THE CENTRAL AND WESTERN U.S...A
   HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE. DRY AIR WILL
   MAINTAIN LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ACROSS MUCH OF THE WESTERN
   STATES...WITH WARM AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES...BUT LACK OF SUSTAINED
   STRONG WIND SPEEDS WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT AT
   A MINIMUM.
   
   ...FL...
   
   RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL DIP BELOW THIRTY PERCENT DURING THE
   LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS AS DRY AIR MOVES INTO THE REGION
   BEHIND A EASTWARD MOVING COLD FRONT. WIND SPEEDS WILL BE SUSTAINED
   AROUND 10 TO 15 KTS...WITH HIGHER GUSTS IN SOME REGIONS.
   THEREFORE...THERE WILL BE A MINIMAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT...MAINLY
   DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON WHEN RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE
   MINIMIZED AND AIR TEMPERATURES ARE MAXIMIZED.
