   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0424 AM CDT FRI AUG 22 2008
   
   VALID 231200Z - 241200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER-LEVEL RIDGING WILL BUILD ACROSS THE NWRN CONUS/SWRN CANADA AS
   AN UPSTREAM TROUGH AMPLIFIES OVER THE NERN PACIFIC. A WEAK
   UPPER-LEVEL IMPULSE OFF THE CA COAST SHOULD UNDERCUT RIDGE AXIS AS
   IT ENCROACHES UPON THE WRN GREAT BASIN.
   
   ...NRN/CNTRL NV AND NRN UT...
   WEAK ASCENT ASSOCIATED WITH AN APPROACHING UPPER-LEVEL IMPULSE MAY
   ENHANCE CU/POSSIBLE CB DEVELOPMENT ACROSS THE ERN SLOPES OF THE
   SIERRAS AND OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE CNTRL GREAT BASIN SAT
   AFTERNOON. NAMKF/GFS FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST RELATIVELY WARM
   MID-LEVEL TEMPERATURES WILL LIMIT EFFECTIVE CAPE TO AOB 200
   J/KG...AND POTENTIAL FOR CHARGE SEPARATION. NEVERTHELESS...IF A TSTM
   CAN DEVELOP...DEEPLY-MIXED INVERTED-V THERMODYNAMIC PROFILES WOULD
   BE FAVORABLE FOR DRY LIGHTNING. EVEN SO...OVERALL TSTM PROBABILITIES
   APPEAR TOO LOW /AOB 10 PERCENT/ TO WARRANT CONSIDERATION OF A
   CRITICAL AREA ATTM.
