ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 230720 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0120 AM CST Tue Jan 23 2018 Valid 241200Z - 251200Z ...Synopsis... A more progressive upper-level pattern will emerge on Wednesday. While the mean upper trough remains over the eastern third of the U.S, the western upper ridge will shift east into the Plains as another trough moves onshore the Pacific coast by the end of the period. At the surface, high pressure will build east from the Plains toward the southeastern states. Meanwhile, a weak lee trough will develop over the southern High Plains with a modest pressure gradient across the region during the afternoon. As a result, elevated fire weather potential will exist across parts of far southwest KS/southeast CO, eastern NM, the OK/TX Panhandles and far western OK. Here, southwest winds around 15 mph with occasionally higher gusts are possible. Temperatures also will warm back into the mid 50s to low 60s. A very dry airmass will remain over the region, and RH values are expected to drop into the 12-25 percent range. ..Leitman.. 01/23/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
