ZCZC SPCFWDDY1 ALL FNUS21 KWNS 260646 Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0146 AM CDT Thu Apr 26 2018 Valid 261200Z - 271200Z ...NO CRITICAL AREAS... ...Synopsis... Large-scale upper troughing with several embedded shortwave perturbations will remain over the central and eastern CONUS today. Upper ridging will persist over the western states as an upper low approaches the coast of northern CA and OR late tonight. At the surface, a cold front will develop southward across the southern/central Plains through the day. A small spatial overlap of strong/gusty post-frontal northeasterly winds and marginally lowered RH values may occur across parts of eastern NM this afternoon. However, RH values should not fall below 20% on any more than a brief/spotty basis due to cooler temperatures behind the front. This continues to preclude an elevated delineation. Warm/dry surface conditions will exist farther west across portions of the Southwest and Great Basin, but generally light winds should limit substantial fire-weather concerns. ..Gleason.. 04/26/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
