ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 220638 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0138 AM CDT Sun Jul 22 2018 Valid 231200Z - 241200Z ...Synopsis... A lack of strong winds across much of the western CONUS will preclude wind/RH concerns on Monday. The primary fire weather concern will be dry thunderstorms in northern California, southern Oregon, and northwest Nevada. Instability is expected to be greater on Monday with slightly faster storm motion than Sunday. This could suggest the need for a scattered dry thunderstorm area, but PWAT values will be at or close to 1 inch which may lead to a combination of wet and dry storms. Therefore, will highlight this area with isolated dry thunderstorm potential at this time. Otherwise, dry conditions and east winds around 15 mph in far west Texas would support an elevated area. However, significant monsoon precipitation over the past 7 days (estimated over an inch in most locations) precludes the need for an elevated area. ..Bentley.. 07/22/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
