   VALID 251200Z - 261200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LARGE UPPER-LEVEL HIGH WILL REMAIN ANCHORED IN THE WRN CONUS. HOT
   AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE SRN GREAT BASIN...WITH
   MID-LEVEL MOISTURE SPREADING NWWD ACROSS THE SIERRAS. SURFACE HIGH
   PRESSURE ACROSS THE NRN PLAINS WILL MAINTAIN A MOIST ELY UPSLOPE
   FLOW ALONG THE CNTRL/SRN ROCKIES THROUGH SRN AZ. ISOLATED DRY TSTMS
   WILL BE POSSIBLE ON THE PERIPHERY OF THE MOISTURE PLUMES...GENERALLY
   ALONG AND JUST W OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE FROM SRN WY SWD INTO NRN
   AZ/NWRN NM...ARCING NWWD ACROSS THE SIERRAS.
   
   ...MOGOLLON RIM/WHITE MTNS OF AZ INTO NWRN NM...
   A SIMILAR SETUP TO SATURDAY IS EXPECTED WITH ISOLATED TO WIDELY
   SCATTERED DRY TSTMS ALONG THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF CNTRL AZ INTO NWRN
   NM ALONG AND W OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. ALTHOUGH SURFACE DEW
   POINTS ARE GENERALLY HIGHER OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS...SATURDAY
   EVENING OBSERVED SOUNDINGS INDICATE A VERY DRY AIR MASS REMAINS IN
   PLACE JUST ABOVE THE SURFACE AND IN AREAS FURTHER NORTH. OROGRAPHIC
   LIFT IN THE PRESENCE OF LOW-LEVEL MOIST SELY FLOW ACROSS SERN AZ/SRN
   NM WILL CONTRIBUTE TO HIGH-BASED TSTM DEVELOPMENT THIS AFTERNOON.
   GUSTY AND ERRATIC OUTFLOW WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY TSTMS.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0413 AM CDT SUN JUN 25 2006
   
   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LARGE MID/UPPER-LEVEL HIGH WILL REMAIN IN THE WRN CONUS...WITH
   SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS. AN ELY COMPONENT TO THE
   LOW AND/OR MID-LEVEL FLOW ALONG WITH SUFFICIENT MOISTURE WILL
   PRODUCE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED TSTMS ACROSS THE CNTRL/SRN ROCKIES AND
   SRN AZ...EXPANDING WWD IN THE FOUR CORNERS REGION. ISOLATED DRY
   TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE MOIST PLUMES AND
   HOT/DRY AIR IN THE GREAT BASIN. 
   
   A TRANSITION TO MORE WETTER TSTMS IS EXPECTED ALONG THE MOGOLLON
   RIM/WHITE MTNS AREA OF CNTRL AZ INTO NWRN NM. THE GREATEST DRY TSTM
   POTENTIAL SHOULD SHIFT NWD...ALONG THE NRN PLATEAU OF AZ INTO THE
   VALLEYS OF ERN UT/WRN CO. FURTHER W...MID-LEVEL IMPULSES/MOISTURE
   CIRCULATING NWWD AROUND THE HIGH MAY LEAD TO A FEW DRY TSTMS ALONG
   THE SIERRAS.
   
   ...NRN PLATEAU OF AZ INTO THE VALLEYS OF ERN UT/WRN CO...
   ISOLATED DRY TSTMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP MONDAY AFTERNOON...AS
   MID-LEVEL MOISTURE INCREASES IN THIS REGION. AN ANTECEDENT DRY AIR
   MASS IN THE LOW-LEVELS WILL YIELD HIGH-BASES ON ANY TSTMS THAT DO
   DEVELOP. HOWEVER...OVERALL COVERAGE IS EXPECTED TO BE ISOLATED...
   OWING TO THE STRENGTH AND PROXIMITY OF THE MID/UPPER-LEVEL HIGH
   CENTERED IN THE GREAT BASIN.
