Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0124 AM CST Wed Jan 16 2019
Valid 171200Z - 181200Z
...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
Another round of weak lee troughing will occur over the southern
High Plains today ahead of a strengthening shortwave trough over the
southwestern states. This will result in continued dry conditions
across eastern NM into the TX Panhandle with RH values in the 20-25
percent range. However, deep layer flow and the surface pressure
gradient will be much weaker than on Wednesday and surface winds
generally will be less than 15 mph. Low ERC values and weak winds
will negate fire weather concerns here. Further east, strong surface
high pressure will shift east/northeast and northeasterly surface
winds will continue across parts of northern FL into the central
Panhandle. This will maintain lower RH values in the 30-40 percent
range and continue to reduce fuel moisture. However, light winds and
low ERCs will limit fire weather concerns.
