ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 251732 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1232 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018 Valid 261200Z - 271200Z ...NO CRITICAL AREAS... The previous forecast remains on track and no changes are needed. ..Leitman.. 04/25/2018 .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0146 AM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018/ ...Synopsis... Large-scale upper troughing with several embedded shortwave perturbations will remain over the central and eastern CONUS on Day 2/Thursday. Upper ridging will persist over the western states as an upper low approaches the coast of northern CA and OR by late Thursday night. At the surface, a cold front will develop southward across the southern/central Plains through the day. A small spatial overlap of strong/gusty post-frontal northeasterly winds and marginally lowered RH values may occur across parts of east-central NM Thursday afternoon. However, RH values are not currently expected to fall below 20% due to cooler temperatures behind the front, precluding an elevated delineation. Warm/dry surface conditions will exist farther west across portions of the Southwest and Great Basin, but generally light winds should limit substantial fire-weather concerns. ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
