   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0147 AM CST SAT FEB 20 2010
   
   VALID 201200Z - 211200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A SHORT WAVE TROUGH MOVING INTO SRN CA WILL QUICKLY PROGRESS EWD
   THROUGH THE SWRN STATES OVERNIGHT...REACHING THE SRN PLAINS LATE IN
   THE PERIOD. IN RESPONSE...A SURFACE LOW WILL DEEPEN AND SHIFT EWD TO
   NEAR THE TX/SWRN OK BORDER. ELSEWHERE...AN UPPER LOW WILL LINGER
   FROM THE NRN PLAINS SWWD TOWARDS CNTRL CA...WHILE FARTHER EAST AN
   UPPER LOW WILL ROTATE INTO THE NORTHEASTERN STATES WITH COOL/MOIST
   CONDITIONS LIMITING ANY FIRE THREAT IN THESE AREAS. DRY CONDITIONS
   WILL PERSIST OVER MUCH OF FLORIDA ONCE AGAIN.
   
   ...FLORIDA...
   SHORT WAVE TROUGH OVER THE N CNTRL GULF AS OF 0730Z IS NOT BEING
   HANDLED WELL BY CURRENT DETERMINISTIC MODEL RUNS. AMPLE MID TO HIGH
   LEVEL CLOUDS AHEAD OF THE FEATURE WILL LIKELY LIMIT MORE SIGNIFICANT
   HEATING TODAY...THOUGH LOW LEVELS WILL REMAIN DRY. ALTHOUGH
   FORECASTS INDICATE MID 20S RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER
   PORTIONS OF INLAND CNTRL/NRN FLORIDA AGAIN TODAY...COOLER
   TEMPERATURES WOULD RAISE THESE VALUES SOMEWHAT...THOUGH CRITICALLY
   LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES IN THE LOWER 30S REMAIN POSSIBLE. LIGHT RAIN
   BEING REPORTED AT MLB THIS HOUR IS INDICATIVE OF ENOUGH MID LEVEL
   MOISTURE TO POSSIBLY SUPPORT MORE WIDESPREAD LIGHT SHOWERS AS THE
   UPPER WAVE REACHES THE FLORIDA COAST BY LATE MORNING...WHICH WOULD
   SOMEWHAT LIMIT THE OVERALL THREAT IN AREAS THAT RECEIVE ANY
   RAINFALL. DEW POINTS WILL CONTINUE TO GRADUALLY INCREASE FROM THE
   SOUTH AS A STRONGER SHORT WAVE TROUGH CURRENTLY MOVING INTO SRN CA
   CONTINUES EWD...VEERING SURFACE WINDS TO SELY AS A SURFACE LOW
   DEVELOPS OVER THE SRN PLAINS OVERNIGHT.
