ZCZC SPCFWDDY2 ALL FNUS22 KWNS 220633 Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0133 AM CDT Thu Aug 22 2019 Valid 231200Z - 241200Z ...NO CRITICAL AREAS... ...Synopsis... The upper-level shortwave trough that tracked over the Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies during the past couple of days will begin to weaken while slowly lifting east-northeast across the northern Plains. A stronger upper-level trough will approach the Pacific Northwest tomorrow with a westerly mid-level jet (35-50 knots) preceding it and stretching across the Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies. The south/east progress of the surface cold front will slow with it likely becoming a stationary front across northern Utah and central Nevada. Elevated conditions may develop across portions of southwest Wyoming into northwest Colorado, but they should be confined to vegetation-sparse areas. Elevated conditions may also develop across portions southern Utah and northern Arizona. However, a weakening surface pressure gradient, lack of mid-level flow, and the possibility of high clouds moving northward preclude an elevated area at this time. ..Nauslar.. 08/22/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
