   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0408 AM CDT TUE JUN 06 2006
   
   VALID 061200Z - 071200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER LEVEL RIDGE ACROSS THE WEST WILL AMPLIFY AND SHIFT EWD
   TODAY...IN RESPONSE TO ERN PACIFIC WAVE. AN ELY WAVE WAS NOTED IN
   EARLY MORNING WATER VAPOR LOOPS MOVING TOWARD THE GULF OF CA. THIS
   DISTURBANCE WILL BECOME ABSORBED WITHIN THE LARGE RIDGE NOW OVER THE
   SOUTHWEST...BRINGING ADDITIONAL MID LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS SRN CA
   INTO THE GREAT BASIN. ISOLD DRY TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SRN CA
   MTNS THROUGH THE SIERRA AND GREAT BASIN/SW UT. A HIGHER PROBABILITY
   FOR TSTMS EXISTS ACROSS PORTIONS OF AZ/NM INTO THE SRN ROCKIES.
   BECAUSE OF THE AMBIENT DRY CONDITIONS...ANY ISOLD LIGHTNING STRIKE
   POSES A FIRE WEATHER THREAT. AIRMASS ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST REMAINS
   VERY DRY AND MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL FALL BELOW 30 PERCENT THIS AFTN
   WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE WINDS.
   
   ...SRN AL/SRN GA/PORTIONS OF THE FL PANHANDLE...
   SFC DEWPOINTS WILL BE IN THE UPPER 40S TO MID 50S FROM MOBILE
   THROUGH TALLAHASSEE TO GAINESVILLE...AND WITH HIGH TEMPS IN THE
   UPPER 80S/LOWER 90S...MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL RANGE FROM 25-35
   PERCENT. KBDI VALUES ARE GENERALLY ABOVE 500 ACROSS THE FL PANHANDLE
   AND PORTIONS OF SRN GA. FIRE THREATS WILL BE MITIGATED BY LIGHTER
   WINDS.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0411 AM CDT TUE JUN 06 2006
   
   VALID 071200Z - 081200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   PATTERN CHANGE WILL BE UNDERWAY BY WEDNESDAY...AS NEXT UPPER TROUGH
   MOVES INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. MID LEVEL WINDS WILL INCREASE
   ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN AS SUBTROPICAL IMPULSES MOVE AROUND THE
   PERIPHERY OF FOUR CORNERS UPPER RIDGE. LARGE SCALE ASCENT WILL BE
   FOCUSED ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN/NRN ROCKIES ASSOCIATED WITH UPPER
   LEVEL DIVERGENCE AHEAD OF THE PAC NW UPPER TROUGH. GIVEN INCREASED
   FORCING FOR ASCENT AND MID LEVEL MOISTURE...TSTMS ARE EXPECTED TO BE
   MORE NUMEROUS ON WEDNESDAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE WEST. ISOLD DRY
   LIGHTNING AND STRONG/SEVERE WIND GUSTS COULD CONTRIBUTE TO A FIRE
   WEATHER HAZARD.
   
   ...SOUTHWEST AND GREAT BASIN...
   FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST HIGH BASED TSTMS WILL FORM ON WEDNESDAY
   ACROSS MUCH OF AZ AND NM AND PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN/UT AND THE
   SIERRA. IN GENERAL...PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES WILL RANGE FROM
   AROUND .50 TO .65 INCHES SUGGESTING THAT LITTLE WETTING RAIN WILL
   ACCOMPANY STORMS. CALIBRATED PROBABILITY OF A DRY TSTM PROVIDED BY
   SREF GUIDANCE WOULD INDICATE SLIGHTER HIGHER CONCENTRATIONS OF
   STORMS FROM SERN AZ NWWD TO THE MOGOLLON RIM...AND NERN NV.
