   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0311 AM CDT THU JUL 26 2007
   
   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE NEAR THE FOUR CORNERS AREA WILL MAINTAIN A
   MONSOONAL PATTERN WITH WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS A LARGE
   PORTION OF THE INTERIOR WEST TODAY.  FARTHER EAST A COLD FRONT WILL
   MOVE FROM THE NRN PLAINS TOWARD THE GREAT LAKES REGION...WHILE AN
   UPPER LOW NEAR LAKE ERIE KEEPS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER MUCH
   OF THE EAST.  SEASONALLY WARM AND HUMID CONDITIONS BUT NO
   PRECIPITATION ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE OVER THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS.
   
   A PACIFIC TROUGH WILL BEGIN TO IMPINGE ON THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
   COAST BY LATE AFTERNOON...PERHAPS AIDING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF
   ISOLATED/WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS FROM ERN ORE TO THE NRN
   ROCKIES.
   
   ...ERN OR/CNTRL ID...
   MOISTURE HAS INCREASED OVER A LARGE PORTION OF THE INTERIOR
   WEST...WITH DEEPER MONSOONAL MOISTURE GENERALLY EXTENDING FROM THE
   NV/UT BORDER TO SWRN ID AND WRN MT. AS AN UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE
   APPROACHING SWRN ORE THIS MORNING MOVES ACROSS CNTRL ORE THIS
   AFTERNOON...THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR ISOLATED/WIDELY SCATTERED DRY
   THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE WRN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEPER MONSOONAL
   MOISTURE. THE GREATEST THREAT OF DRY THUNDERSTORMS IS IN A NARROW
   BAND FROM THE HIGH PLATEAU OF ERN ORE TO THE MOUNTAINS OF NERN ORE
   AND INTO CNTRL ID. THE MARGINAL CONDITIONS FOR DRY THUNDERSTORMS
   COMBINED WITH WEAK FORCING AND LIMITED AREAL COVERAGE PRECLUDES THE
   ISSUANCE OF A CRITICAL AREA.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0405 AM CDT THU JUL 26 2007
   
   VALID 271200Z - 281200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WRN U.S. UPPER RIDGE SHIFTS WESTWARD FRIDAY AS AN UPPER LOW OVER SRN
   TX ADVANCES TOWARD NM DURING THE PERIOD. FARTHER NORTH AN UPPER
   TROUGH OVER THE ERN PACIFIC HELPS TO FLATTEN THE RIDGE IN THE
   NORTHWEST...BRINGING A SLIGHTLY DRIER AIRMASS TO THE GREAT BASIN AND
   NRN ROCKIES. AN UPPER TROUGH WILL ADVANCE TOWARD NEW ENGLAND DURING
   THE PERIOD...WHILE A SURFACE COLD FRONT EXTENDS FROM THE GREAT LAKES
   TO THE CENTRAL PLAINS FRIDAY AFTERNOON. DEEP MONSOONAL MOISTURE
   REMAINS IN THE SOUTHWEST AND INTO THE CENTRAL ROCKIES...WITH
   SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF THE
   INTERIOR WEST...SOUTHEAST...AND EAST.
   
   ...ERN GREAT BASIN/SWRN ID...
   AS DRIER WESTERLY FLOW PUSHES THE MONSOONAL MOISTURE EASTWARD...THE
   POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE WRN
   PERIPHERY OF THE MONSOON MOISTURE BOUNDARY. WHILE SCATTERED
   THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FROM ERN NV THROUGH MUCH OF ID AND WRN
   MT...IT APPEARS THE COMBINATION OF LARGE SCALE ASCENT AND OPTIMAL
   MOISTURE IS LIMITED SUCH THAT A CRITICAL DRY THUNDERSTORM AREA IS
   NOT WARRANTED AT THIS TIME.
