   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0328 AM CDT SUN JUN 21 2009
   
   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER-LEVEL PATTERN WILL CONTINUE TO BE CHARACTERIZED BY A RIDGE
   ACROSS THE MS RIVER VALLEY AND A TROUGH IN THE WEST. AN EMBEDDED
   SHORT WAVE TROUGH ALONG THE W COAST WILL EJECT NEWD TOWARDS THE NRN
   GREAT BASIN/ROCKIES THROUGH EARLY MON. A BROAD BELT OF MODERATE TO
   STRONG MID-LEVEL W/SWLYS WILL PERSIST ALONG THE SRN PERIPHERY OF THE
   SHORT WAVE ACROSS MOST OF CA AND THE CNTRL/SRN GREAT BASIN.
   
   ...NWRN AZ/FAR SERN NV/EXTREME SWRN UT...
   LOCALIZED/SHORT-DURATION CRITICAL CONDITIONS SHOULD DEVELOP DURING
   LATE AFTERNOON WHERE SUFFICIENTLY CURED FUELS EXIST. ALTHOUGH
   TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN SLIGHTLY BELOW
   NORMAL...SUBSTANTIAL DRYING OVER THE WRN MOJAVE DESERT ON SAT WILL
   SPREAD NEWD. THIS SHOULD LEAD TO RH BECOMING MARGINALLY LOW DURING
   PEAK HEATING /AROUND 15 PERCENT/ AT MID-ELEVATION LOCALES. SUSTAINED
   SWLY SURFACE WINDS OF 20 TO 25 MPH WILL BECOME WIDESPREAD DURING
   EARLY TO MID-AFTERNOON GIVEN 40 TO 45 MPH FLOW AT 500 MB.
   HOWEVER...MODEL FORECASTS ARE CONSISTENT IN A GRADUAL WEAKENING OF
   LOW/MID-LEVEL WINDS NEAR PEAK HEATING AS THE SHORT WAVE TROUGH AXIS
   SHIFTS NEWD. THIS WILL HELP TEMPER THE DURATION OF STRONGER WINDS
   WHEN RH IS MINIMIZED.
