   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0412 AM CDT THU JUL 06 2006
   
   VALID 061200Z - 071200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGE WILL REMAIN OVER THE CENTRAL CONUS...WITH UPPER TROUGHS
   LOCATED OVER THE WEST AND EAST COASTS. SCT TSTMS WILL OCCUR OVER
   MUCH OF THE WEST AHEAD OF THE UPPER TROUGH AND ON THE WEST SIDE OF
   THE UPPER RIDGE. MOST OF THIS CONVECTION IS ANTICIPATED TO BE
   WET...ESPECIALLY OVER THE SWRN STATES WHERE THE MONSOON IS WELL
   UNDERWAY. OVER THE ERN CONUS...A COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH
   SWD THROUGH THE MID-ATLANTIC/SERN STATES. BEHIND THE FRONT...A
   BROAD/LARGE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL EXIST OVER MUCH OF THE
   PLAINS/GREAT LAKES REGION. RELATIVELY LOW DEWPTS /AFTERNOON RH
   READINGS AROUND 30 PERCENT/ WILL EXIST OVER MUCH OF THIS
   REGION...BUT RELATIVELY LIGHT WINDS WILL PRECLUDE ANY FIRE WEATHER
   CONCERNS.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0412 AM CDT THU JUL 06 2006
   
   VALID 071200Z - 081200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGING OVER THE CENTRAL CONUS WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT
   FEATURE AT UPPER LEVELS TOMORROW. AN UPPER TROUGH OVER THE GREAT
   BASIN/PAC NW TODAY WILL LIFT NEWD INTO THE NRN ROCKIES
   TOMORROW...WHILE UPPER TROUGHING SHOULD REMAIN ALONG THE EAST COAST.
   MEANWHILE...SFC HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT SFC FEATURE
   OVER MUCH OF THE ERN CONUS. SFC LEE TROUGHING OVER THE HIGH PLAINS
   AHEAD OF THE NRN ROCKIES UPPER TROUGH WILL RESULT IN SLY WINDS
   INCREASING OVER MUCH OF THE CENTRAL/NRN PLAINS LATE IN THE DAY. LOW
   LEVEL MOISTURE RETURN WILL BE NEGLIGIBLE BUT ENOUGH MOISTURE WILL BE
   IN PLACE THAT NO LOW RH FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE ANTICIPATED.
   ANOTHER DAY OF SCT-NMRS TSTMS ARE EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF THE ROCKIES
   REGION AS MONSOON MOISTURE INTERACTS WITH FORCING AHEAD OF THE UPPER
   TROUGH. A DECREASING TREND IN TSTM COVERAGE IS EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF
   THE GREAT BASIN AS MID LEVEL FLOW BECOMES MORE WLY IN THE WAKE OF
   THE UPPER TROUGH.
   
   ...GREAT BASIN...
   DECREASING TSTM COVERAGE IS EXPECTED OVER THE GREAT BASIN AS MID
   LEVEL FLOW BECOMES MORE WLY. HOWEVER WHAT MID LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINS
    WILL CO-EXIST WITH A FORECAST MID LEVEL THERMAL TROUGH. SUFFICIENT
   INSTABILITY SHOULD RESULT IN ISOLATED TSTMS OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN
   OF THE GREAT BASIN. DRYING LOW LEVELS WILL LIKELY AID IN SOME
   POTENTIAL FOR DRY TSTMS. HOWEVER THE COVERAGE IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE
   SUFFICIENT FOR ANY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
