   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0305 AM CST MON DEC 10 2007
   
   VALID 101200Z - 111200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A QUIET FIRE WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE TODAY. UPPER LOW NEAR
   BAJA IS FORECAST TO TRANSITION EAST-NORTHEASTWARD TODAY...WHILE A
   NORTHERN STREAM SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVES SOUTHEASTWARD OUT OF THE
   CANADIAN PRAIRIES. WIDESPREAD/SIGNIFICANT WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS
   EXPECTED ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN PLAINS AND MIDDLE
   MISSISSIPPI VALLEY THROUGH TONIGHT. THE SOUTHEAST STATES WILL SEE
   ANOTHER DAY OF VERY WARM TEMPERATURES WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER
   70S/LOWER 80S...HOWEVER CRITICAL RH VALUES ARE NOT EXPECTED.
   
   ...SOUTHERN CA...
   OFFSHORE NORTH-NORTHEASTERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE LATE IN THE
   PERIOD...LARGELY ATTRIBUTABLE TO A MODERATELY STRONG MID LEVEL JET
   IN THE WAKE OF THE BAJA/SOUTHWEST STATES UPPER TROUGH AND DEVELOPING
   HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN. IN SPITE OF LOCALLY GUSTY
   WINDS TONIGHT/EARLY TUESDAY...THE COMBINATION OF MOIST FUELS AND
   INITIALLY COOL CONDITIONS WITH SUFFICIENTLY HIGH RH VALUES WILL
   PRECLUDE AN APPRECIABLE FIRE WEATHER RISK.

   VALID 111200Z - 121200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER TROUGH IS FORECAST TO SHIFT EASTWARD OVER THE FOUR CORNERS
   AREA ON TUESDAY. TO THE NORTH...SPLIT FLOW PATTERN WILL OTHERWISE
   CONTINUE ACROSS THE WESTERN/CENTRAL STATES...WITH STRONG/CONFLUENT
   UPPER FLOW OVER THE GREAT LAKES/NORTHEAST STATES. WIDESPREAD WINTRY
   PRECIPITATION IS AGAIN EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL U.S.
   
   ALTHOUGH CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED BECAUSE OF
   SUFFICIENTLY HIGH AFTERNOON RH VALUES...UPPER RIDGING WITH NEAR
   RECORD WARMTH WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES...WITH HIGH
   TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 80S COMMON.
   
   ...CA...
   WITH BUILDING GREAT BASIN HIGH PRESSURE IN THE WAKE OF THE EXITING
   UPPER TROUGH...LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ONGOING EARLY
   TUESDAY ACROSS SOUTHERN CA. ALTHOUGH MILDER TEMPERATURES ARE
   EXPECTED TUESDAY OWING TO THE OFFSHORE GRADIENT...MARGINAL
   TEMPERATURES/RH VALUES AND RELATIVELY MOIST FUELS SUGGEST CRITICAL
   FIRE CONDITIONS ARE UNLIKELY. FARTHER NORTH...THE OFFSHORE/DOWNSLOPE
   GRADIENT WILL ALSO LEAD TO A WARM-UP IN THE VALLEYS WEST OF THE
   SIERRA CREST.
