   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0413 AM CDT SAT APR 07 2007
   
   VALID 071200Z - 081200Z
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF SERN AL/GA/FL AND THE
   CAROLINA PIEDMONT...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   VERY COLD UPPER TROUGH WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE
   NEXT 24-36 HOURS. MID LEVEL 120KT JET MAX WILL MOVE AROUND THE BASE
   OF THE TROUGH...EXTENDING FROM NRN GA ACROSS THE CAROLINA PIEDMONT
   THIS AFTN. EXISTING SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT COMBINED WITH STRONG UPPER
   LEVEL JET WINDS WILL SUPPORT GUSTY SFC WINDS TODAY MAINLY ACROSS GA
   AND THE CAROLINAS. CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE
   ACROSS A BROAD AREA OF THE SOUTHEAST DUE TO THE VERY LOW HUMIDITY
   VALUES AND GUSTY WINDS...DESPITE BELOW NORMAL MAX TEMPERATURES.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA - PORTIONS OF SERN AL/GA/FL AND THE
   CAROLINA PIEDMONT...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: MINIMUM RH VALUES 15-25 PERCENT/SUSTAINED WINDS
   15-20 MPH/LONG TERM DROUGHT
   
   CRITICALLY LOW RH VALUES WILL AFFECT ALL LOCATIONS WITHIN THE
   OUTLOOK AREA...WITH HUMIDITY RANGING FROM 15-25 PERCENT IN MOST
   LOCATIONS. MAX TEMPS WILL BE GENERALLY 10-20 DEGREES BELOW
   NORMAL...HOWEVER...AND THIS WILL SOMEWHAT OFFSET THE SEVERITY OF THE
   LOW HUMIDITY. STRONGEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP IN CLOSEST PROXIMITY TO
   THE JET MAX...SPECIFICALLY ACROSS GA AND THE CAROLINAS...WITH MORE
   MODERATE WINDS ACROSS CNTRL AND SRN FL. RECENT KBDI VALUES SUGGEST
   THE MOST SEVERE DROUGHT CONDITIONS ARE ACROSS MUCH OF FL AND SRN GA
   THROUGH COASTAL SC...WHERE VALUES EXCEED 400. SRN AND CNTRL FL WILL
   HAVE THE WARMEST TEMPS TODAY...IN THE 60S/70S...WITH LOW HUMIDITY
   VALUES...ALTHOUGH WINDS WILL NOT BE AS STRONG AS FARTHER NORTH.
   
   RAINFALL DEFICITS IN THE PAST 30-60 DAYS ARE GENERALLY IN EXCESS OF
   4 INCHES...SO GIVEN FAVORABLE FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS...THERE
   REMAINS AN INCREASED POTENTIAL FOR WILDFIRE.

   VALID 081200Z - 091200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE TO BE DOMINATED BY A LARGE CYCLONIC FLOW
   AFFECTING MUCH OF THE UPPER MIDWEST THROUGH THE OH/TN VALLEYS AND
   THE ERN STATES THROUGH SUNDAY. MEANWHILE ACROSS THE WEST...WEAKER
   IMPULSES WILL MOVE FROM THE GREAT BASIN INTO CNTRL AZ AND INTO THE
   NORTHWEST. AT THE SFC...HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL SLIDE
   EAST...EXTENDING ACROSS THE LOWER MS VALLEY/OZARKS AND UPPER MIDWEST
   BY EARLY MONDAY.
   
   ...PORTIONS OF GA/CAROLINAS AND FL...
   ALTHOUGH RH VALUES WILL CONTINUE TO BE QUITE LOW ACROSS THE
   AREA...MAX TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE SIMILAR OR A FEW DEGREES WARMER
   THAN ON SATURDAY. STRONG MID LEVEL WINDS NEAR 80 KT WILL CONTINUE
   ACROSS THE TN VALLEY ON SUNDAY...BUT WILL NOT BE AS STRONG AS ON
   SATURDAY. IN ADDITION...DIMINISHING SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL
   SUPPORT ONLY MODERATE WINDS ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHEAST WITH
   SUSTAINED WINDS OF AROUND 10-15 MPH. OVERALL WEATHER CONDITIONS
   SHOULD REMAIN BELOW CRITICAL THRESHOLDS ON SUNDAY...EVEN WITH DRY
   FUEL CONDITIONS AND LOW HUMIDITY.
