0223 AM CDT Fri May 25 2018
Valid 261200Z - 271200Z
...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR NORTHERN ARIZONA...NORTHWEST NEW
MEXICO...EXTREME WESTERN COLORADO...AND SOUTHEAST UTAH...
A slow moving, closed low will begin to fill/open as it continues
eastward on Saturday. As this occurs, a belt of enhanced
south-southwest mid-level flow will remain in place across the
Southwest United States into portions of the central Rocky
...Northern Arizona, northwest New Mexico, extreme western Colorado,
and southeast Utah...
Widespread critical fire-weather conditions are expected across the
region as the aforementioned low moves slowly through the West.
Diurnal heating and deep vertical mixing will result in favorable
downward momentum transport across the area, supporting afternoon
winds in the 20-30 mph range, with stronger gusts. Additionally,
minimum afternoon relative-humidity values will fall into the single
digits and teens across a similar area. This combination of hot,
dry, and windy conditions will result in widespread
elevated-to-critical fire-weather concerns. One mitigating factor
for a more widespread fire-weather event will be non-cured fuels
across portions of the higher elevations.
