   MIDWEST TODAY WILL REINFORCE THE MEAN LONGWAVE TROUGH OVER THE

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0312 AM CST MON NOV 05 2007
   
   VALID 061200Z - 071200Z
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF AL/GA/SC...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   PRONOUNCED UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO EVOLVE OVER THE EASTERN
   STATES ON TUESDAY. IN THE WAKE OF THIS FEATURE...NORTHWEST MID/UPPER
   LEVEL FLOW WILL BE DOMINANT ACROSS THE MAJORITY OF THE
   COUNTRY...WHILE AN UPPER LOW REMAINS QUASI-STATIONARY OFF THE CA
   COAST. BEHIND A COLD FRONT CROSSING THE SOUTHEAST STATES/FL AND
   SOUTH TX EARLY IN THE DAY...EXPANSIVE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE AND COOL
   CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL/EASTERN STATES.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA - PORTIONS OF AL/GA/SC...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: GUSTY WINDS/LOW RH AND LONG TERM DROUGHT
   
   AFTER A NUMBER OF WARM DAYS WITH VERY LOW RH VALUES...A COLD FRONT
   WILL QUICKLY SPREAD SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES EARLY
   TUESDAY. IN THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT...SUSTAINED NORTHWEST WINDS
   WILL INCREASE TO AROUND 15 MPH BY LATE MORNING IN MOST
   LOCALES...WITH SOME HIGHER GUSTS. GIVEN THE EXTREME-EXCEPTIONAL 
   DROUGHT IN PLACE...THESE RELATIVELY STRONG/GUSTY WINDS WILL RESULT
   IN A CRITICAL FIRE DANGER FOR MUCH OF AL/GA/SC ON TUESDAY. EVEN WITH
   A COOLER AIRMASS FILTERING INTO THE REGION BEHIND THE FRONT...DRY
   CONTINENTAL TRAJECTORIES WILL RESULT IN NEAR CRITICAL RH VALUES
   THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.
   
   ...CENTRAL/SOUTHERN TX...
   AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS SOUTHWARD TO THE GULF OF MEXICO...GUSTY
   NORTH-NORTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ONGOING EARLY IN THE
   MORNING ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL/SOUTHERN TX. SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS
   MAY REACH 15-20 MPH...WITH HIGHER GUSTS. WHILE THESE GUSTY WINDS MAY
   YIELD A HEIGHTENED FIRE DANGER ON TUESDAY...CLOUD COVER/MARGINAL RH
   VALUES SHOULD TEND TO LIMIT THE OVERALL POTENTIAL.
