   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0302 AM CST FRI NOV 30 2007
   
   VALID 301200Z - 011200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN AMPLIFIES TODAY AS THE TROUGH OVER THE
   PACIFIC NORTHWEST CONTINUES TO DIG SWD ALONG THE WEST COAST.  THIS
   DIGGING CAUSES A CUTOFF LOW INITIALLY WEST OF BAJA TO OPEN AND EJECT
   NEWD...REACHING THE FOUR CORNERS REGION BY EARLY SATURDAY.  AS THE
   SYSTEM TRAVERSES THE SOUTHWEST...SUBSTANTIAL PRECIPITATION IS
   EXPECTED ACROSS PORTIONS OF AZ AND NM LATER TODAY INTO SATURDAY.
   FARTHER EAST...AN UPPER TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED SURFACE COLD FRONT
   WILL MOVE FROM THE GREAT LAKES THROUGH NEW ENGLAND DURING THE
   PERIOD. THE REMAINDER OF THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS IS UNDER THE INFLUENCE
   OF A BROAD UPPER RIDGE AND STRONG SURFACE HIGH CENTERED OVER THE
   UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.
   
   SURFACE CYCLOGENESIS OVER THE SRN GREAT BASIN WILL CREATE BREEZY TO
   WINDY CONDITIONS OVER PORTIONS OF THE MOJAVE DESERT EWD INTO SRN NV.
   HOWEVER TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOL /MOSTLY IN THE 50S/ AND LOW-LEVEL
   MOISTURE STEADILY INCREASING THROUGH THE DAY.
   
   ...SERN U.S./GULF COAST...
   DRY NLY FLOW /MINIMUM RH 25 TO 35 PERCENT/ IS EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS
   OF MS...AL...GA..AND THE FL PANHANDLE THIS AFTERNOON. BUT LIGHT
   WINDS /LESS THAN 5 TO 10 MPH/ AND THE SHORT PERIOD OF MODERATELY LOW
   RH NEGATE THE NEED FOR A CRITICAL AREA.

   VALID 011200Z - 021200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WRN U.S. TROUGH BECOMES MORE PROGRESSIVE SATURDAY AND MOVES FROM THE
   WEST COAST TO THE NRN/CNTRL PLAINS DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD. THIS
   IS REFLECTED AT THE SURFACE BY A LARGE SURFACE CYCLONE ADVANCING
   INTO THE CNTRL PLAINS...CREATING WINDY CONDITIONS FROM AZ TO SRN KS
   AND A LARGE AREA OF RAIN...SNOW...AND FREEZING RAIN ACROSS PORTIONS
   OF THE CNTRL PLAINS TO THE UPPER MIDWEST. THE LARGE SURFACE HIGH
   THAT HAS DOMINATED THE RECENT WEATHER ACROSS THE ERN CONUS SHIFTS
   NEWD SATURDAY...MAINTAINING THE DRY AIRMASS AND LIGHT WINDS OVER THE
   SOUTHEAST.
   
   ...SRN HIGH PLAINS...
   VERY WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FROM THE ERN PLAINS OF NM THROUGH
   WRN TX AND THE PANHANDLES OF TX/OK SATURDAY.  TEMPERATURES DURING
   THE AFTERNOON WILL BE MILD /MAX TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S/ AS SWLY
   SURFACE WINDS INCREASE TO 25 TO 35 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS.
   HOWEVER...THE AIRMASS IS NOT EXPECTED TO BECOME PARTICULARLY DRY AND
   MINIMUM RH SHOULD REMAIN AT OR ABOVE 25 TO 35 PERCENT.
   
   
   ...SERN U.S./GULF COAST...
   THE FLOW ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST BECOMES ELY/NELY SATURDAY AS THE
   AFOREMENTIONED SURFACE HIGH SHIFTS TOWARD THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY.
   PORTIONS OF MS...AL...GA..AND THE FL PANHANDLE WILL AGAIN SEE RH
   FALL TO BETWEEN 25 AND 35 PERCENT SATURDAY AFTERNOON. BUT LIGHT
   WINDS /5 TO 10 MPH/ AND THE MARGINAL RH PRECLUDE A CRITICAL AREA.
