   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0106 PM CDT FRI OCT 31 2014

   VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

   ...GA/FL...
   ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL EXIST ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
   CENTRAL AND ERN FL PENINSULA ON SATURDAY. WITH ANOMALOUSLY STRONG
   LOWER-TROPOSPHERIC FLOW PRESENT AND A DRY POST-FRONTAL AIR
   MASS...BREEZY CONDITIONS AND LOW RH VALUES WILL BE REALIZED ACROSS
   THE ELEVATED AREA. IN FACT...CRITICAL RH/WINDS APPEAR LIKELY FOR
   SEVERAL HOURS. HOWEVER...THE UNSEASONABLY COOL AIR MASS AND LACK OF
   WIDESPREAD DRY FUELS PRECLUDE A CRITICAL DELINEATION AT THIS TIME. 

   LOW RH / STRONG WINDS WILL BE REALIZED ACROSS LOCATIONS OUTSIDE THE
   ELEVATED AREA...PRIMARILY PORTIONS OF NERN FL AND SRN GA. WHILE
   FUELS ARE MORE FAVORABLE HERE...EVEN COOLER CONDITIONS PRECLUDE AN
   EXTENSION OF THE ELEVATED DELINEATION THIS FAR NORTH.
   HOWEVER...LATER FORECASTS COULD DO SO IF SLIGHTLY WARMER TEMPS /
   LOWER RH VALUES APPEAR MORE LIKELY. TO THE SOUTH OF THE ELEVATED
   AREA /LAKE OKEECHOBEE AND TO THE SOUTH/...THE DURATION OF ENHANCED
   FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ON SATURDAY APPEARS TOO SHORT FOR INCLUSION
   AT THIS TIME.

   A COASTAL LOW DEVELOPS AND LIFTS NORTHWARD ALONG THE MID-ATLANTIC
   COAST. ACROSS THE WESTERN UNITED STATES...COOLER/WETTER CONDITIONS
   ACCOMPANYING THE WESTERN UNITED STATES TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO
   SPREAD EAST...MOVING INTO THE WESTERN AND CENTRAL GREAT BASIN.

   NEAR CRITICALLY-TO-CRITICALLY LOW RELATIVE-HUMIDITY VALUES WILL BE
   POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST IN THE WAKE OF THE
   DEVELOPING COASTAL LOW. HOWEVER...SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
   BELOW NORMAL...MITIGATING THE OVERALL LARGE-SCALE FIRE-WEATHER
   THREAT.
