   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK

   VALID 161200Z - 171200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL CONTINUE TO MIGRATE EWD ACROSS THE WRN
   ATLANTIC ON TUESDAY...WHILE A LARGE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS ACROSS THE
   WRN CONUS. AT THE SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL SPREAD SWD OUT OF THE
   GREAT PLAINS. THIS WILL CAUSE ELY WINDS TO STRENGTHEN ACROSS SRN
   AZ...WHILE WEAKENING THE LOW LEVEL FLOW ACROSS FL.
   
   ...FLORIDA...
   SURFACE FLOW IS FORECAST TO BECOME MORE NLY ACROSS THE STATE OF FL
   ON TUESDAY...WHICH MAY FAVOR THE ADVECTION OF DRIER CONTINENTAL AIR
   INTO THE REGION...RESULTING IN LOWER MIN RH VALUES /AROUND 35
   PERCENT/. HOWEVER...WITH THE MID ATLANTIC SYSTEM DEPARTING...AND
   HIGH PRESSURE SPREADING TOWARD THE AREA...SURFACE WINDS SHOULD
   GENERALLY REMAIN LIGHT /BELOW 10-15 MPH/...RESULTING IN A LOW
   POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
