ZCZC SPCFWDDY1 ALL FNUS21 KWNS 180658 Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1258 AM CST Fri Jan 18 2019 Valid 181200Z - 191200Z ...Synopsis... An upper trough is expected to amplify as it moves southeastward from the southern Rockies into the lower Mississippi Valley today into tonight. A surface low will move southeastward in conjunction with the upper trough, while an attendant cold front sweeps through the southern High Plains. ...Far West TX into the Southern High Plains... In advance of the cold front, increasing low-level westerly flow will result in downslope warming/drying across portions of southeast NM and west TX. Sustained winds of 20-25 mph combined with minimum RH values near or below 25% will result in a period of elevated fire weather conditions this afternoon along and ahead of the cold front. While locally critical meteorological conditions are possible, generally marginal fuel conditions and limited potential for critical RH should preclude a more substantial threat. ..Dean.. 01/18/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
