   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0244 AM CDT MON JUN 22 2009
   
   VALID 221200Z - 231200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL PERSIST ALONG THE MS RIVER
   VALLEY...FLANKED BY A PAIR OF TROUGHS ALONG THE WEST AND EAST
   COASTS. THE WRN CONUS TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO DEVOLVE INTO A SPLIT
   FLOW REGIME...WITH A NRN BRANCH SHORT WAVE OVER THE PACIFIC NW
   TRACKING TOWARDS THE NRN HIGH PLAINS AND A SRN BRANCH SHORT WAVE
   BECOMING STATIONARY OFF THE CA COAST.
   
   ...FAR SERN AZ/FAR SWRN NM...
   A FEW DRY TSTMS MAY DEVELOP ALONG THE SERN AZ/SWRN NM BORDER AS
   RICHER MID-LEVEL MOISTURE OVER SONORA/CHIHUAHUA IS SLOWLY ADVECTED
   NWD. RELATIVELY WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE MID/UPPER-LEVELS SHOULD
   PROVE MARGINAL FOR CHARGE SEPARATION WHERE SURFACE RH REMAINS AOB 15
   PERCENT. IN ADDITION...LARGE-SCALE ASCENT SHOULD BE MINIMAL
   SUGGESTIVE OF ONLY ISOLATED TSTM COVERAGE VIA OROGRAPHIC FORCING.
   
   ...INTERIOR FL PANHANDLE...
   IN THE WAKE OF A WEAK IMPULSE ALONG THE SOUTHEAST COAST...A POCKET
   OF RELATIVELY DRIER AIR WAS PRESENT OVER WRN/SRN GA /PER WATER VAPOR
   AND GPS PW IMAGERY/. THIS WILL OVERSPREAD THE FL PANHANDLE THROUGH
   THE MORNING AND WITH NEAR-RECORD TO RECORD HIGHS AROUND 100 DEG
   F...RH VALUES SHOULD DROP TO BETWEEN 30 AND 35 PERCENT.
   HOWEVER...LOW-LEVEL NWLYS WILL REMAIN MODEST WITH SUSTAINED SURFACE
   SPEEDS AROUND 10 MPH.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0331 AM CDT MON JUN 22 2009
   
   VALID 231200Z - 241200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A PERSISTENT UPPER-LEVEL HIGH THAT HAS BEEN ANCHORED OVER THE LOWER
   MS RIVER VALLEY THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS WILL RETROGRADE WWD INTO THE
   SRN PLAINS. A CUTOFF UPPER-LEVEL LOW WILL REMAIN OFF THE CA COAST.
   MODEST DEEP-LAYER SLYS IN BETWEEN THESE TWO SYSTEMS WILL RESULT IN A
   GRADUAL POLEWARD TRANSPORT OF RICHER SUB-TROPICAL MOISTURE ACROSS
   THE SOUTHWEST TOWARDS THE SRN GREAT BASIN.
   
   ...NRN AZ TO THE FOUR CORNERS AREA...
   THE THREAT FOR A FEW DRY TSTMS ALONG THE NRN PERIPHERY OF INCREASING
   MID-LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE DISPLACED NWD FROM SUN/DAY 1...WITH A
   SIMILAR THERMODYNAMIC/KINEMATIC ENVIRONMENT. CHARGE SEPARATION
   SHOULD REMAIN MARGINAL /WHERE SURFACE RH HOLDS AOB 15
   PERCENT/...GIVEN RELATIVELY WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE
   MID/UPPER-LEVELS. LARGE-SCALE ASCENT SHOULD REMAIN WEAK WITH
   OROGRAPHIC LIFT AND DIURNAL HEATING THE PRIMARY DRIVERS FOR ISOLATED
   TSTM PRODUCTION.
