   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0350 AM CST THU FEB 08 2007
   
   VALID 081200Z - 091200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LITTLE CHANGE TO THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN IS PROGGED TODAY...AS A
   BLOCK PERSISTS IN THE UPPER FLOW REGIME NEAR 140W.  CONFLUENT REGIME
   INTO CYCLONIC FLOW SOUTH OF EASTERN CANADIAN/NORTHEASTERN U.S. POLAR
   LOW WILL MAINTAIN A STRONG SURFACE RIDGE TO THE LEE OF THE
   CANADIAN/U.S. ROCKIES.  AND...NEAR/SUB-FREEZING DAYTIME TEMPERATURES
   ARE EXPECTED FROM PARTS OF THE NORTHERN INTERMOUNTAIN
   REGION/NORTHERN ROCKIES THROUGH THE NORTHERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE
   NATION EAST OF THE ROCKIES.  THE SHALLOW LEADING EDGE OF THE ARCTIC
   AIR MASS LIKELY WILL ADVANCE THROUGH MUCH OF THE REMAINDER OF THE
   SOUTHERN TIER STATES.  PRE-FRONTAL BOUNDARY LAYER ACROSS DEEP SOUTH
   TEXAS AND THE FLORIDA PENINSULA WILL REMAIN WARM...BUT WITH
   INCREASING HUMIDITY LEVELS.
   
   ANOTHER SHORT WAVE IMPULSE EMANATING FROM THE SOUTHERN STREAM
   EASTERN PACIFIC TROUGH WILL SUPPORT INCREASING PRECIPITATION ACROSS
   NORTHERN/CENTRAL PACIFIC COASTAL AREAS...AND REINFORCE COOLER
   TEMPERATURES.  MEANWHILE...A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE IMPULSE
   ALREADY PROGRESSING INLAND WILL BRIEFLY SUPPRESS INTERMOUNTAIN UPPER
   RIDGE...AS IT CONTINUES ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN AND CENTRAL ROCKIES. 
   AS A RESULT...WARM/DRY CONDITIONS WILL GENERALLY BECOME CONFINED TO
   PORTIONS OF THE LOWER COLORADO VALLEY/SOUTHERN PLATEAU AND THE
   IMMEDIATE LEE OF THE SOUTHERN ROCKIES.  THIS IS WHERE LATE AFTERNOON
   TEMPERATURES/HUMIDITIES MAY APPROACH CRITICAL LEVELS...BUT WEAK
   SURFACE WINDS SHOULD MINIMIZE FIRE POTENTIAL.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0352 AM CST THU FEB 08 2007
   
   VALID 091200Z - 101200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LITTLE CHANGE TO THE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN IS EXPECTED THROUGH FRIDAY.
   A STRONG UPPER JET STREAK ASSOCIATED WITH THE SOUTHERN BRANCH OF
   SPLIT POLAR WESTERLIES IS PROGGED TO NOSE TOWARD SOUTHERN
   CALIFORNIA/NORTHERN BAJA.  AND...THIS MAY CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASINGLY
   BREEZY DAYTIME CONDITIONS ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN PLATEAU AND
   LOWER COLORADO VALLEY...WHERE IT WILL REMAIN WARM/DRY. 
   HOWEVER...WIND SPEEDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN MOSTLY BELOW CRITICAL
   LEVELS.  AND...AN INCREASE IN HIGH LEVEL CLOUD COVER MAY FILTER
   INSOLATION ACROSS THIS REGION...ALSO MITIGATING FIRE WEATHER
   POTENTIAL.
