ZCZC SPCFWDDY1 ALL FNUS21 KWNS 240644 Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0144 AM CDT Sun Jun 24 2018 Valid 241200Z - 251200Z ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST NEW MEXICO... ...Synopsis... An upper-level trough will translate across the central Rockies and an embedded mid-level speed max will move over the Four Corners region today. Strong surface heating will mix down enhanced mid-level winds over much of the region. At the surface, a trough along the Texas Panhandle will act to enhance surface winds over parts of the southwestern CONUS. ...New Mexico...western Arizona...southeastern Utah...southwestern Colorado... A critical area has been introduced for parts of northwest New Mexico. Latest guidance suggests that winds of 20+ mph, due to the combined effects of mid-level winds mixing down and surface trough to the east enhancing the pressure gradient, will overlap with RH of 10-15% for at least 3 hours. Surrounding the critical region, areas of 5-15% RH will exist but will experience only elevated to locally critical surface winds. ..Wendt.. 06/24/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
