Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0202 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017
Valid 191200Z - 201200Z
A strong, low-latitude mid-level trough across northern Mexico and
the southwest United States will fracture on Sunday, with a lead
shortwave trough quickly lifting northeast into the central Plains
and a secondary trough closing off and slowly moving east-southeast
toward southern Texas. At the surface, lee cyclogenesis will occur
during the afternoon across northeast Colorado or southeast Wyoming.
Southerly surface winds are expected to ramp up in response to the
aforementioned surface cyclogenesis across northeast Colorado or
southeast Wyoming. Minimum relative-humidity values should fall into
the 20-25% range, with isolated areas falling into the upper teens.
Despite relative-humidity values being slightly on the high side,
given temperatures in the upper-50s to mid-60s Fahrenheit and the
strength of the expected low-level wind fields, fine fuels should
cure enough to support an elevated fire-weather threat for a few
hours during the afternoon.
