   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0458 AM CDT MON MAY 14 2007
   
   VALID 141200Z - 151200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER TROUGH NOW MOVING ACROSS SRN ALBERTA WILL CONTINUE EAST TODAY
   WITHIN AN ACTIVE NRN STREAM. MEANWHILE MID LEVEL RIDGE WILL ALSO
   SHIFT EAST ACROSS THE ERN THIRD OF THE CONUS TODAY. SFC LOW PRESSURE
   SYSTEM ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR WIDESPREAD
   SHOWERS/TSTMS ALONG ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WHICH IS EXPECTED TO
   EXTEND FROM UPPER MI TO ERN NEB TO ANOTHER SFC LOW IN SW KS BY AFTN.
   SUFFICIENT MID LEVEL MOISTURE IS IN PLACE TO PROMOTE SCATTERED TSTMS
   THROUGH THE CNTRL/SRN ROCKIES. MAIN FIRE CONCERNS TODAY WILL BE OVER
   THE ERN STATES...WITH SFC HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING ACROSS THE AREA.
   DRY AIR COMBINED WITH STRONGER ELY WINDS ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST MAY
   POSE ADDITIONAL FIRE THREATS...AND VERY DRY AIRMASS WILL ALSO BE
   PRESENT OVER THE NORTHEAST.
   
   ...SERN GA/NRN FL/INLAND PORTIONS OF CAROLINAS...
   MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL FALL BELOW 25-30 PERCENT ACROSS PORTIONS OF
   SERN GA/NRN FL AND THE E FL PANHANDLE. THIS WILL BE TRUE ESPECIALLY
   IN AREAS AWAY FROM THE COAST. MAX TEMPS WILL MAINLY BE IN THE
   70S/80S WITH DEWPOINTS ONLY IN THE 30S. IN ADDITION...E/NE WINDS
   WILL BE QUITE GUSTY /20-25 MPH/...WHICH MAY HAMPER ONGOING
   FIREFIGHTING EFFORTS. TSTMS SHOULD MAINLY BE CONFINED TO CNTRL/SRN
   FL...WITH LOWER CHANCES IN THE FL PANHANDLE. LIGHTNING STRIKES WILL
   BE A POSSIBLE IGNITION SOURCE IF THEY OCCUR AWAY FROM THE AREA OF
   HEAVIEST RAIN.
   
   ...NORTHEAST...
   MINIMUM RH VALUES DROPPED TO AROUND 20 PERCENT IN SOME LOCATIONS OF
   ME/MA/NH/VT/ERN NY ON SUNDAY...AND THIS WILL OCCUR AGAIN TODAY.
   SUSTAINED WINDS WILL NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO PRODUCE WIDESPREAD
   CRITICAL CONDITIONS...THOUGH GUSTY CONDITIONS WILL ENHANCE WILDFIRE
   THREAT LOCALLY.
