SPC Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0145 AM CDT Fri Mar 30 2018 Valid 301200Z - 311200Z ...Synopsis... Broad cyclonic upper level flow will develop across much of the country east of the Rockies today. Any stronger deep-layer flow will remain generally across the northern Rockies to the Great Lakes and northeastern U.S. under the influence of several shortwave impulses in larger-scale flow. A surface low, attendant to an east-southeastward tracking shortwave trough, will move across the northern Plains with a surface trough extending southward through the central and into the southern High Plains. The resulting tightening of the surface pressure gradient in conjunction with westerly flow over the southern Rockies, will lead to some breezy conditions across parts of central into northeast NM, far southeast CO and extreme western/northwestern portions of the OK/TX Panhandles. Southwest winds around 15 mph will develop during the afternoon as RH values fall to 15-25 percent. As a result, some elevated fire weather potential will exist for a few hours this afternoon. ..Leitman.. 03/30/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product... Read more
