   VALID 111200Z - 121200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER-LEVEL SHORT WAVE TROUGH OVER THE NRN ROCKIES WILL AMPLIFY
   SEWD AND BECOME CENTERED OVER THE UPPER MS RIVER VALLEY SWWD THROUGH
   THE SRN PLAINS BY EARLY TUE. LEE SURFACE LOW WILL DEVELOP SWD ALONG
   THE HIGH PLAINS. THIS LOW WILL EVENTUALLY TRACK EWD ALONG THE RED
   RIVER TOWARDS THE LOWER MS RIVER VALLEY AS A COLD FRONT PUSHES SWD
   THROUGH THE SRN PLAINS DURING THE EVENING/OVERNIGHT. SURFACE HIGH
   PRESSURE WILL SHIFT FROM THE CORN BELT TOWARDS THE MID-ATLANTIC
   REGION.
   
   ...W-CNTRL/SWRN FL...
   DESPITE A DRY AIR MASS OVER MUCH OF THE SOUTHEAST/LOWER
   MID-ATLANTIC...ANY CRITICAL THREAT SHOULD BE RESERVED TO PORTIONS OF
   THE W COAST OF THE FL PENINSULA. HERE...MODERATE ELY LOW-LEVEL FLOW
   AROUND A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE CENTERED OFF THE SE COAST SHOULD SUPPORT
   SURFACE WINDS NEAR 15 MPH AROUND MIDDAY. AS TEMPERATURES WARM INTO
   THE MIDDLE 70S...RH VALUES SHOULD DROP TO AROUND 30 TO 35 PERCENT.
   LOCALIZED/SHORT-DURATION CRITICAL CONDITIONS APPEAR LIKELY. 
   
   ...E-CNTRL NM...
   MODERATE W/NWLY LOW-LEVEL WINDS WILL SUPPORT ONE MORE AFTERNOON OF
   WARM/DRY CONDITIONS...PRIOR TO A COLD FRONT PASSAGE THIS EVENING.
   TEMPERATURES WILL WARM INTO THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 70S WITH CRITICALLY
   LOW RH OF 8 TO 15 PERCENT. SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS MAY BRIEFLY REACH
   20 MPH AT PEAK HEATING SUPPORTING A MARGINAL DURATION OF CRITICAL
   CONDITIONS.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0339 AM CST MON FEB 11 2008
   
   VALID 121200Z - 131200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   OVERALL POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER APPEARS LOW ON TUE.
   HIGHLY-AMPLIFIED UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL SLOWLY PROGRESS EWD ACROSS
   THE CNTRL CONUS AND BECOMES CENTERED FROM THE GREAT LAKES TO THE
   LOWER MS RIVER VALLEY BY EARLY WED. THIS TROUGH WILL AID IN
   WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION PRODUCTION FROM THE ERN CONUS THROUGH THE
   GULF COAST STATES. IN ITS WAKE...EXPANSIVE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD
   OVER THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS.
   
   ...EDWARDS PLATEAU OF TX...
   ALTHOUGH GUSTY WINDS SHOULD ACCOMPANY A COLD FRONT PASSAGE TUE
   MORNING...MODEL GUIDANCE SUGGESTS SUBSTANTIALLY DRIER AIR WILL LAG N
   OF THE BOUNDARY. AS RH VALUES FALL TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS
   /AROUND 20 PERCENT/ BY MID-AFTERNOON...LOW-LEVEL WINDS SHOULD WEAKEN
   CONSIDERABLY WITH APPROACH OF A RIDGE AXIS. JUXTAPOSITION OF LOW RH
   AND STRONG WINDS SEEMS UNLIKELY ATTM.
