   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0356 AM CST SAT FEB 03 2007
   
   VALID 031200Z - 041200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THREAT FOR CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN MINIMAL FOR THE NEXT
   SEVERAL DAYS ACROSS MOST OF THE CONUS. THE EXCEPTION MAY BE ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF SRN CA...WHERE PATTERN FAVORS OFFSHORE WINDS AND A
   SIGNIFICANT WARM UP THIS WEEKEND. UPPER PATTERN THIS MORNING IS
   CHARACTERIZED BY LARGE UPPER RIDGE IN THE WEST AND ABNORMALLY DEEP
   CYCLONE OVER ONTARIO. DUE TO SEVERAL RECENT INTRUSIONS OF ARCTIC
   AIR...MUCH OF THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE BELOW NORMAL
   TEMPERATURES. PORTIONS OF CNTRL/SRN FL WILL BE ONE OF THE ONLY
   REGIONS IN THE EAST TO HAVE NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES...GENERALLY IN
   THE 60S TODAY WITH 70S ACROSS SRN FL. ACROSS SRN CA...SANTA ANA
   WINDS AND LOWERING HUMIDITY MAY INCREASE FIRE CONCERNS.
   
   ...SRN CA...
   AS GREAT BASIN HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS ACROSS THE REGION...GRADIENT
   WILL INCREASE OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO...WHICH WILL FAVOR GUSTY
   OFFSHORE WINDS. MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL CERTAINLY BE LOW ENOUGH TO
   SUPPORT CRITICAL VALUES /BELOW 15 PERCENT/ AND TEMPERATURES WILL
   RISE INTO THE 70S. HOWEVER...MAGNITUDE OF WINDS IS NOT EXPECTED TO
   WARRANT A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK. EVEN WARMER TEMPERATURES
   ARE EXPECTED FOR SUNDAY.

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ST LAWRENCE BAY AND ERN QUEBEC. MEANWHILE WRN RIDGE WILL MOVE LITTLE
   THROUGH THE PERIOD...AS SFC HIGH CONTINUES TO BUILD ACROSS THE ERN
   GREAT BASIN. THE ONLY TWO PLACES IN THE CONUS THAT HAVE ANY LOW-END
   FIRE WEATHER THREAT ARE SRN FL AND SRN CA. SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT
   SHOULD REMAIN STRONG ENOUGH ACROSS SRN CA TO FAVOR GUSTY OFFSHORE
   WINDS...WITH WARMING TEMPS/LOWERING RH VALUES. 
   
   MEANWHILE...ACROSS SRN FL...POST FRONTAL AIRMASS WILL BE COOLER BUT
   SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED. THE LOWEST RH VALUES ARE

   OFFSHORE WINDS WILL CONTINUE ON SUNDAY...WITH WARMING TEMPERATURES
   IN THE 70S AND 80S AND LOW RH VALUES. AGAIN...OVERALL MAGNITUDE OF
   WINDS DOES NOT APPEAR TO WARRANT A WIDESPREAD CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
   THREAT. HOWEVER...LOCALLY WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE
   WITHIN PASSES AND CANYONS.
