   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1116 AM CDT WED AUG 24 2016

   VALID 241700Z - 251200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   NO CHANGE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST ARE NEEDED. SEE DISCUSSION BELOW.

   ..LEITMAN.. 08/24/2016

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0131 AM CDT WED AUG 24 2016/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   FLOW ALOFT OVER THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST WILL WEAKEN SUBSTANTIALLY
   DURING THE DAY TODAY...AS WEAK DISTURBANCES LINGER OVER IDAHO AND
   ARIZONA/NEW MEXICO AND A STRONGER DISTURBANCE MOVES TOWARD THE
   WESTERN GREAT LAKES.  MEANWHILE...STOUT UPPER RIDGING WILL REMAIN IN
   PLACE ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES.  AT THE SURFACE...COOLER AIR
   WILL FILTER INTO AREAS OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AS HIGH PRESSURE
   BUILDS INTO THAT AREA...WHILE A WEAK SURFACE LOW REMAINS NEARLY
   STATIONARY OVER NORTHERN COLORADO.

   THE NET RESULT OF THIS SYNOPTIC PATTERN IS A REDUCED FIRE WEATHER
   THREAT IN DRY AREAS OF THE WEST...PRIMARILY DUE TO COOLER
   TEMPERATURES IN MANY AREAS AND A LACK OF WIDESPREAD AREAS OF 15 MPH
   OR GREATER SURFACE FLOW.  AS SUCH...NO AREAS WILL BE INTRODUCED FOR
   THIS OUTLOOK.
