   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0420 AM CDT THU JUN 22 2006
   
   VALID 221200Z - 231200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   PATTERN ACROSS THE NATION TODAY WILL SLOWLY BECOME AMPLIFIED...AS
   UPPER RIDGING BUILDS OVER THE WRN STATES AND UPPER TROUGHING
   DEVELOPS OVER THE CENTRAL/ERN CONUS. VERY HOT TEMPERATURES WITH NEAR
   RECORD READINGS WILL BE PREVALENT OVER MUCH OF THE SWRN
   STATES...GREAT BASIN AND CA. LOW RH READINGS WILL RESULT BUT LIGHT
   WINDS WILL PRECLUDE A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT. DEVELOPING NW
   FLOW BETWEEN THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WEST AND UPPER TROUGHING OVER
   THE PLAINS WILL SUPPORT A FRONTAL BOUNDARY SWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS.
   IN ASSOCIATION WITH THIS FRONT...WELCOME RAINFALL WILL BE LIKELY
   OVER PORTIONS OF THE SRN PLAINS. ON THE ERN EDGE OF THE UPPER
   RIDGE...RECYCLED MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT DRY
   TSTMS OVER PORTIONS OF ERN AZ...WRN AND CENTRAL NM TODAY. BUT
   COVERAGE OF DRY TSTMS IS NOT ANTICIPATED TO BE SUFFICIENT FOR A
   CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
   
   ...SERN AZ...WRN AND CENTRAL NM...
   ON THE WRN EDGE OF LOW-MID LEVEL MOISTURE...HOT TEMPERATURES/DRY
   DEEPLY MIXED BOUNDARY LAYER WILL SUPPORT CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT IN
   THE HIGHER TERRAIN AGAIN TODAY. SOME OF THESE TSTMS ARE EXPECTED TO
   BE DRY...BUT THE OVERALL COVERAGE IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE GREAT ENOUGH
   FOR A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0421 AM CDT THU JUN 22 2006
   
   VALID 231200Z - 241200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   STRONG UPPER RIDGE WILL REMAIN ENTRENCHED OVER THE WEST THROUGH THE
   PERIOD....LEADING TO RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES OVER MUCH OF THE GREAT
   BASIN/SWRN STATES AND INTERIOR CA. ALONG WITH THE HOT TEMPERATURES
   ...LOW RH READINGS WILL SUPPORT ANOTHER DAY OF VERY HIGH FIRE
   DANGER...BUT GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS WILL PRECLUDE A CRITICAL FIRE
   WEATHER THREAT. ANOTHER DAY OF ISOLATED DRY TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
   ALONG THE AZ/NM BORDER ON THE WRN EDGE OF THE MID LEVEL MOISTURE.
   ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE NATION...A BROAD SFC HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SFC
   AND UPPER TROUGH WILL RESULT IN NO CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREATS.
   
   ...SERN AZ/WRN NM...
   ISOLATED DRY TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE WRN EDGE OF MID LEVEL
   MOISTURE SITUATED EAST OF THE UPPER RIDGE CENTER. NELY MID LEVEL
   STEERING CURRENTS WILL TAKE ANY TSTMS SWWD TOWARDS THE LOWER
   ELEVATIONS OF SERN AND POSSIBLY PARTS OF SCENTRAL AZ. AS ON DAY
   ONE...A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR DRY TSTMS WILL EXIST. HOWEVER WITH
   NEARBY PRESENCE OF THE UPPER RIDGE ONLY ISOLATED DRY TSTMS ARE
   ANTICIPATED.
