   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE WRN CONUS AS AN EMBEDDED
   SHORT WAVE TROUGH DIGS ALONG THE W COAST. NEARLY ZONAL
   MID/UPPER-FLOW REGIME WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS AND
   SOUTHEAST.
   
   ...PLAINS OF ERN NM...
   SIGNIFICANTLY WARMER TEMPERATURES /FROM THE MID 60S TO MID 70S/ WILL
   DEVELOP SW OF A RATHER SHARP QUASI-STATIONARY FRONT EXPECTED TO
   STRETCH FROM SERN CO TO THE SRN TX PANHANDLE THIS AFTERNOON. THIS
   SHOULD RESULT IN RH VALUES BECOMING MARGINALLY LOW /FROM 15 TO 20
   PERCENT/. ALTHOUGH MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL STRENGTHEN AS WRN CONUS
   TROUGH AMPLIFIES...MODEL FORECAST SOUNDINGS ARE CONSISTENT WITH A
   RELATIVELY SHALLOW MIXED BOUNDARY LAYER. THIS WILL HELP MITIGATE
   STRONGER WINDS FROM DEVELOPING AT THE SURFACE AND SUSTAINED SPEEDS
   SHOULD LARGELY REMAIN AOB 15 MPH.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0314 AM CST SUN JAN 25 2009
   
   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   POSITIVELY-TILTED UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH SHOULD EXTEND FROM THE NRN
   PLAINS TO THE SOUTHWEST BY EARLY TUE. FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER THE SRN
   HIGH PLAINS SHOULD REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY THROUGH MON
   AFTERNOON...PRIOR TO ACCELERATING SWD MON NIGHT.
   
   ...PORTIONS OF SERN NM/SWRN TX...
   LOW/MID-LEVEL SWLYS SHOULD CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN FROM DAY 1
   RESULTING IN STRONG SUSTAINED WINDS FROM 20 TO 30 MPH OVER THE
   HIGHER TERRAIN AND MODERATE SPEEDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH WITHIN THE PECOS
   VALLEY INVOF FST NWD. MODEL FORECASTS ARE CONSISTENT WITH DEPICTING
   MID/UPPER-LEVEL MOISTENING DOWNSTREAM OF SWRN CONUS TROUGH. PROBABLE
   CLOUD COVERAGE WOULD HINDER INSOLATION AND SHOULD MITIGATE THE
   DEVELOPMENT OF LOW RH ESPECIALLY OVER HIGHER TERRAIN. DOWNSLOPE
   EFFECTS WITHIN THE PECOS VALLEY MAY YIELD A BRIEF PERIOD OF RH NEAR
   15 PERCENT.
