   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0353 AM CDT SAT JUN 24 2006
   
   VALID 241200Z - 251200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WRN UPPER RIDGE WILL SLOWLY AMPLIFY WITH AN ASSOCIATED SURFACE
   THERMAL TROUGH FROM THE SWRN DESERTS NNW INTO THE CA CNTRL VALLEY.
   SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL NOSE SWD IN THE LEE OF THE NRN ROCKIES.
   MOIST ELY UPSLOPE FLOW TO THE S OF THIS HIGH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO TSTM
   DEVELOPMENT FROM PORTIONS OF WY SWD INTO SERN AZ. ISOLATED DRY TSTMS
   WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE EDGE OF THE LOW-LEVEL ELY FLOW...WITH THE
   GREATEST COVERAGE ACROSS E-CNTRL AZ INTO W-CNTRL NM.
   
   ...MOGOLLON RIM/WHITE MTNS OF AZ INTO FAR W-CNTRL NM...
   ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED DRY TSTMS APPEAR LIKELY TODAY AS DEEP
   ELY FLOW CONTINUES TO THE SE OF AN UPPER-LEVEL HIGH CENTERED NEAR
   SRN NV. SUFFICIENT LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE /CURRENT SFC DEW POINTS IN THE
   MID 40S TO MID 50S/ ACROSS SERN AZ/SWRN NM WILL BE OROGRAPHICALLY
   LIFTED TO PRODUCE HIGH-BASED TSTMS ACROSS THE HIGH TERRAIN OF
   E-CNTRL AZ/W-CNTRL NM. ALTHOUGH AMBIENT LOW-LEVEL WIND FIELDS WILL
   BE WEAK /GENERALLY AROUND 10 KTS OR LESS/...GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS
   WILL ACCOMPANY ANY TSTMS.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0425 AM CDT SAT JUN 24 2006
   
   VALID 251200Z - 261200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LITTLE CHANGE IN THE OVERALL PATTERN WILL OCCUR FROM DAY 1. THE
   CENTER OF THE LARGE UPPER-LEVEL HIGH ACROSS THE WEST...WILL LIFT
   SLOWLY NWD TOWARDS LAKE TAHOE. A MOIST ELY UPSLOPE FLOW WILL BE
   MAINTAINED ACROSS THE CNTRL/SRN ROCKIES THROUGH SRN AZ...TO THE S OF
   A SURFACE HIGH IN THE NRN PLAINS. WHERE THE MOIST LOW-LEVEL FLOW
   INTERSECTS WITH VERY WARM AND DRY AIR ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN/FOUR
   CORNERS REGION...ISOLATED DRY TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ONCE AGAIN. THE
   MOST LIKELY AREA FOR ANY SUBSTANTIAL COVERAGE SHOULD SHIFT SLIGHTLY
   WEST ACROSS E-CNTRL AZ.
   
   ...MOGOLLON RIM/WHITE MTNS OF AZ...
   DRY TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ON SUNDAY...AS OROGRAPHIC LIFT AND
   SUFFICIENT LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS SERN AZ/SWRN NM COMBINE TO
   PRODUCE HIGH-BASED TSTMS ALONG THE HIGH TERRAIN. OVERALL COVERAGE IS
   NOT EXPECTED TO WARRANT A CRITICAL AREA...WITH ISOLATED TO WIDELY
   SCATTERED DRY TSTMS DEVELOPING. LOW-LEVEL WIND FIELDS SHOULD ONCE
   AGAIN BE WEAK. HOWEVER...GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY TSTMS.
