   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WEST WILL CONTINUE TO
   INTENSIFY....RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD HOT AND EXTREMELY DRY WEATHER.

   LOCALIZED PRESSURE GRADIENTS FROM THE VALLEYS INTO THE MTNS WILL

   THROUGH PASSES AND CANYONS. WINDS WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT WITH POOR
   RH RECOVERY.
   
   ...SERN AZ...
   LOCALLY STRONG WLY WINDS WILL DEVELOP MAINLY DUE TO DIFFERENTIAL
   HEATING FROM THE LOWLANDS INTO THE MTNS OF SERN AZ. SOME AREAS WILL
   SEE SUSTAINED WINDS OF 15-20 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 30 MAINLY THROUGH
   PASSES AND CANYONS. IT WILL ALSO REMAIN QUITE HOT AND EXTREMELY DRY

   OCCUR. IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE HOT AND WITH RH DIPPING TO NEAR 10
   PERCENT. A MDT TO HIGH HAINES INDEX WILL BE IN PLACE WHICH MAY
   COMBINE WITH THE RECENTLY CHANGED WIND DIRECTION TO AGGRAVATE
   EXISTING FIRES.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0408 AM CDT TUE JUL 03 2007
   
   VALID 041200Z - 051200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY ACROSS THE WRN U.S. WITH
   RECORD HEAT AND EXTREMELY LOW RH. MEANWHILE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL
   SINK SWD ACROSS CO INTO NM...ALLOWING A WWD SURGE OF MOISTURE TO
   MOVE INTO ERN AZ WITH THREAT OF A FEW DRY STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS.
   ELSEWHERE...SURFACE HIGH/RIDGE WILL EXTEND WWD INTO THE MID ATLANTIC
   WITH VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS OVER THE CAROLINAS.
   
   ...SERN AZ...
   ELY LOW LEVEL WINDS WILL BRING MOISTURE WWD OUT OF NM INTO SERN
   AZ...RESULTING IN A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY OVER THE HIGH TERRAIN.
   SOME OF THESE STORMS WILL LIKELY BE DRY...AND ALL WILL PRODUCE GUSTY
   WINDS. WETTING RAIN IS A POSSIBILITY IF ENOUGH MOISTURE ARRIVES. IT
   WILL REMAIN VERY HOT AND DRY WITH SINGLE DIGIT RH ALONG WITH LOCALLY
   GUSTY TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS OF 10-20 MPH.
   
   ...SRN CA ANTELOPE VALLEY AND COASTAL RANGE...
   LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH PASSES AND CANYONS BUT ARE
   NOT EXPECTED TO REACH CRITICAL LEVELS ON A LARGE SCALE. SPEEDS OF
   15-20 MPH WILL BE EASILY ATTAINED WITH HIGHER GUSTS...WHILE EXTREME
   HEAT AND LOW HUMIDITY CONTINUE. RH WILL BE POOR OVERNIGHT WHILE
   WINDS REMAIN GUSTY.
