   DAY 3-8 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0154 PM CST TUE MAR 03 2015

   VALID 051200Z - 111200Z

   FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW DURING THE DAY 3-8
   PERIOD. A MEAN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL REMAIN OVER THE EASTERN HALF
   OF THE COUNTRY DURING THE PERIOD WHILE WESTERN UPPER RIDGE REMAINS
   NEAR THE WEST COAST. A WEAK UPPER LOW NEAR NORTHERN BAJA AT THE
   BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD WILL SLOWLY TRACK EAST ACROSS NORTHERN
   MEXICO BEFORE EVENTUALLY BECOMING ABSORBED OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
   BY THE LARGER-SCALE EASTERN TROUGH BY DAY 6/SUN. AT THE SURFACE...A
   COLD FRONT WILL TRACK SOUTH/SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST U.S. ON
   DAY 3/THU...BRINGING WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION FROM THE MID-ATLANTIC
   TO THE GULF COAST STATES. BEHIND THE FRONT...HIGH PRESSURE WILL
   DOMINATE SURFACE CONDITIONS FOR MUCH OF THE PERIOD RESULTING IN
   GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS AND QUIET FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. THE
   EXCEPTION MAY BE ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL/SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
   WHERE WARMING AND DRYING WILL OCCUR BENEATH THE UPPER RIDGE.
   ADDITIONALLY...SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT BASIN MAY LEAD
   TO SOME PERIOD OF LIGHT OFFSHORE WINDS ON DAYS 3-5/THU-SAT.
   HOWEVER...THE LACK OF STRONGER OFFSHORE WINDS AND UNFAVORABLE FUEL
   CONDITIONS WILL LIMIT ANY FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
