Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook

Valid 261200Z - 011200Z
A positively tilted mid-level trough will be developing across the
northern Rocky Mountains at the start of the forecast period. As
this trough moves east Friday and Saturday, increased mid-level flow
will glance portions of the Southwest -- particularly on Friday.
This increased mid-level flow will be mixed down to the surface as
strong heating results in a deep boundary layer. The result will be
high confidence in critical fire weather conditions on Friday, with
decreasing confidence thereafter.
In the wake of this trough, a large-scale ridge is expected to
develop across the west, with an attendant trough across the east.
This pattern will keep the strongest flow away from the dry areas of
the west, and promote a cool, wet airmass across the east. An
exception to the cooler/wetter airmass across the east will be
portions of the Florida Peninsula, where relative humidity will once
again fall below 30%. This area will need to be monitored for
elevated-to-locally critical fire-weather concerns next week.
