   ... Large-scale fire weather concerns should remain low over the
   next week ...

   The large-scale mid-to-upper-level pattern across the West will
   de-amplify this week, becoming more zonal with time. The strongest
   flow within this broadly zonal regime will be found across the
   northern states, removed from where fuels are dry enough to support
   large-scale fire concerns. 

   By early next week the large-scale pattern is expected to amplify
   again. However, significant spread within global ensembles --
   solutions range from high-amplitude ridge in the West to a cutoff
   low moving across the West -- lead little confidence in large-scale
   fire weather conditions.
