Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0353 PM CST Fri Jan 24 2020
Valid 261200Z - 011200Z
A progressive pattern will continue over the CONUS through the
outlook period with multiple frontal passages likely across the
southern CONUS. Multiple low latitude shortwave trough passages will
likely limit moisture return to near the Gulf Coast and push cold
fronts through Texas and Florida.
On Day 3/Sunday, drier conditions are likely to develop across the
Florida Peninsula with minimum RH values dropping to 20-35%.
However, winds will be weak limiting the probability for critical
conditions. Drier conditions are likely to return on Day 5/Tuesday -
Day 6/Wednesday, but potential precipitation on Day 4/Monday and
forecast relatively light northwest winds will limit potential
critical conditions on Day 5/Tuesday.
...Southern High Plains...
Westerly winds will increase across the southern High Plains on Day
4/Monday, but minimum RH will likely remain above elevated
thresholds (20-30%). Precipitation is possible late Day 4/Monday
into Day 5/Tuesday from the Edwards Plateau and east/south across
central/south Texas as the cold front moves through. This and
marginal minimum RH values across the area including near the Rio
Grande will limit fire potential behind the cold front as stronger
west/northwest winds (15-25 mph) develop. Stronger post-frontal
north-northwest flow (15-25 mph) is likely to develop across the
southern High Plains, but RH will likely remain above 20%.
