...Day 3/Monday - Day 4/Tuesday: Portions of the Southwest into the
Southern High Plains...
Critical fire weather conditions will likely occur on Day 3/Monday
across parts of southern/central NM and far west TX as a upper
trough/low moves eastward from the Great Basin towards the central
Rockies. A strong mid-level west-southwesterly jet will overlie much
of AZ/NM and the adjacent southern High Plains Monday afternoon, and
strong/gusty surface winds will occur along with lowered RH values.
Critical meteorological conditions will probably extend east of the
current 70%/critical delineation, but less receptive fuels across
eastern NM into west TX preclude an even larger area.
As this upper trough/low ejects northeastward across the Plains on
Day 4/Tuesday, lingering enhancement to the low and mid-level flow
may lead to some increase in fire weather concerns across parts of
eastern NM and far west TX. 40%/marginal probabilities have been
introduced across this area to account for this potential.
...Day 3/Monday - Day 6/Thursday: Portions of the Southeast...
A dry low-level airmass will remain across parts of Southeast
through much of the extended forecast period. At this time, it
appears that surface winds should remain weak beneath prominent
upper ridging though Day 4/Tuesday. An increase in low-level winds
may occur over some portion of this dry airmass on both Day
5/Wednesday and Day 6/Thursday as an upper trough moves across the
Upper Midwest and OH Valley. If model agreement increases in the
strength/placement of these low-level winds, probabilities may be
needed for some portion of the Southeast in this time frame given
the lack of recent precipitation and very receptive fuels that will
