ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 170622 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0122 AM CDT Tue Sep 17 2019 Valid 181200Z - 191200Z ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN... ...Synopsis... A large amplitude upper-level trough will move into the western CONUS on Wednesday. Strengthening mid-level flow around the base of this trough will overspread the dry airmass in the Great Basin Wednesday. Deep mixing during the afternoon will transport 20 to 25 mph winds to the surface where surface relative humidity is expected to be around 10 to 15 percent. These conditions support a critical fire weather delineation in portions of the southern Great Basin. In addition to these fire weather conditions, this strong upper-level trough will also bring significant rainfall to most of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho which should significantly reduce fire weather threat in these regions for at least a few weeks and could possibly serve as a season ending event for many areas, especially considering the significant rainfall totals across these areas during the past week. ..Bentley.. 09/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
