   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0341 AM CST WED NOV 01 2006
   
   VALID 021200Z - 031200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   NWLY FLOW INTO THE BASE OF UPPER TROUGH ACROSS THE OH/TN VALLEYS
   WILL HELP PUSH A STRONG AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE SEWD INTO THE GULF
   COAST STATES...WHERE IT WILL BECOME DRIER WITH GUSTY NLY WINDS
   PRODUCING NEAR-CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS IN SPOTS. THIS SAME AREA OF
   HIGH PRESSURE WILL EXTEND WWD THROUGH THE PLAINS STATES WITH VERY
   DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS KS/MO/OK/NWRN TX. ELSEWHERE...PACIFIC MOISTURE
   WILL BEGIN TO STREAM EWD INTO THE PACIFIC NW AND NRN CA WITH HEAVY
   PRECIPITATION LIKELY WHILE IT REMAINS DRY IN THE GREAT BASIN AND
   DESERT SW.
   
   ...MS/AL/GA/NRN FL/SRN SC...
   A VERY STRONG AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL SURGE EWD INTO THE AREA AS
   A WEAK COLD FRONT MOVES QUICKLY OFFSHORE INTO THE ATLANTIC. THIS
   WILL BRING LOW RH VALUES FROM 25-30 PERCENT OVER A LARGE
   AREA...ESSENTIALLY FROM NRN LA/MS/AL AND POINTS NWWD...AND HIGHER
   VALUES INTO SRN AL/GA/NRN FL...MAINLY ABOVE 35 PERCENT. WINDS WILL
   INCREASE TO 15-20 MPH AREAWIDE.
   
   FIRE THREAT WILL LIKELY BE TEMPERED ACROSS NRN AL/MS/TN DUE TO
   FORECAST RAINFALL WHICH WILL OCCUR WED INTO THU MORNING. AREAS FROM
   SERN AL ACROSS SRN GA/SC AND INTO NRN FL AND THE FL PANHANDLE WILL
   SEE THE HIGHEST FIRE THREAT. AT THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THAT RH
   VALUES WILL HOLD BETWEEN 35-40 PERCENT OVER MUCH OF THE AREA.
   PORTIONS OF THIS AREA COULD BE UPGRADED IN NEXT DAY 1 OUTLOOK IF IT
   BECOMES APPARENT RH WILL BE LOWER THAN FORECAST.
