Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1259 PM CST Tue Nov 12 2019
Valid 131200Z - 141200Z
...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
Forecast remains on track. Strong post-frontal winds across the
southeast Colorado/southwestern Kansas vicinity may lead to elevated
fire weather conditions for a brief time as RH falls perhaps below
25%. Current model comparison with surface observations shows models
may have a warm/dry bias. With uncertainty regarding duration of
possible elevated conditions, will refrain from adding highlights.
.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0142 AM CST Tue Nov 12 2019/
An upper-level shortwave trough is forecast to move across the
central Rockies/Plains through northwesterly flow aloft on
Wednesday, acting to reinforce troughing over the eastern CONUS. In
response at the surface, a weak surface low pressure system with an
associated cold front will move southeastward across the Plains on
Overall, fire weather concerns are expected to remain relatively low
on Wednesday, as winds should remain weak over Southern California
despite continued dry conditions. Portions of the central/southern
High Plains may see strong northerly winds behind the aforementioned
"cold" front coupled with RH values below 25%, but conditions are
too uncertain/marginal to highlight an area at this time.
