   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0344 AM CDT FRI JUN 08 2007
   
   VALID 091200Z - 101200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER PATTERN WILL FEATURE WEAK TROUGH IN THE WEST...CENTERED ON SRN
   CA AND THE LOWER CO RIVER VALLEY...WHILE MUCH OF THE REST OF THE
   CONUS REMAINS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ZONAL FLOW. BROAD AREA OF HIGH
   PRESSURE ACROSS TX AND THE LOWER MS VALLEY WILL ALLOW MOISTURE TO
   RETURN WWD ACROSS THE HIGH PLAINS AND SOUTHWEST. COMBINED WITH THE
   WEAK LARGE SCALE ASCENT PROVIDED BY THE CA TROUGH...THERE WILL
   LIKELY BE MTN TSTMS ACROSS CO/NM. ISOLD DRY TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE
   MAINLY WEST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE ACROSS NW NM AND EXTREME ERN
   AZ.
   
   ...SOUTHWEST...
   THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT FIRE THREAT ON SATURDAY WILL BE FROM ISOLD DRY
   LIGHTNING. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST STORMS THAT DEVELOP EAST OF
   THE DIVIDE ACROSS CNTRL/NRN NM WILL BE MAINLY WET...WITH RELATIVELY
   HIGH PW VALUES. WEST OF THE DIVIDE...INVERTED-V THERMODYNAMIC
   PROFILES SUGGEST AT LEAST THE POSSIBILITY OF ISOLD DRY LIGHTNING
   STRIKES. FUELS IN THIS REGION ARE SUFFICIENTLY DRY GIVEN RECENT FIRE
   DANGER CLASS VALUES...SO NEW IGNITIONS ARE POSSIBLE IF STORMS
   DEVELOP.
