   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0127 AM CST TUE JAN 05 2010
   
   VALID 051200Z - 061200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER PATTERN WILL UNDERGO LITTLE CHANGE TODAY FROM YESTERDAY AS A
   LARGE SCALE UPPER TROUGH WILL REMAIN SITUATED ACROSS THE ERN STATES.
   A SURFACE RIDGE WILL EXTEND FROM THE LOWER MS RIVER VALLEY EWD TO
   THE FL PENINSULA.
   
   ...FL...
   LARGE SCALE SUBSISTENCE WILL LEAD TO SUNNY SKIES UNDERNEATH BUILDING
   HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE REGION TODAY.  MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO
   SUGGEST SUSTAINED WINDS MAY BE A LITTLE STRONGER THAN YESTERDAY AND
   BE NEAR 15 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 25 MPH.  MIN RH IS EXPECTED TO BE
   LOWER IN THE UPPER TEENS TO NEAR 30 OVER MUCH OF INTERIOR FL WITH
   HIGHER VALUES NEAR THE COASTS.  THE COMBINATION OF RELATIVELY COOL
   TEMPS /WARMEST OVER S FL/ AND LESS RECEPTIVE FUELS DUE IN PART TO
   RECENT RAINFALL/CURRENT SEASONALLY AVERAGE KBDI VALUES/NON-DROUGHT
   STATUS WILL LIKELY ACT TO MITIGATE THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT OVER MUCH
   OF THE PENINSULA...ESPECIALLY THE PANHANDLE.  THE ONE EXCEPTION
   WHERE CONDITIONS/FUELS MAY BE MORE RECEPTIVE TO FIRE GROWTH WOULD BE
   INTERIOR AREAS NEAR/S OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE WHERE LOCALIZED CRITICAL
   FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY OCCUR.
