Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0108 AM CDT Tue Apr 23 2019

Valid 231200Z - 241200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...Synopsis...
An upper-level low located over the Desert Southwest will shift
east-southeast throughout the day into portions of northern Mexico.
Meanwhile, a mid-level shortwave trough will traverse the Great
Lakes region into portions of the Northeast, with zonal flow
paralleling the U.S./Canadian border farther west. 

At the surface, high pressure will settle into the Great Basin and
central/northern Plains, with a stationary front extending from the
Southern Plains to the Ohio Valley. With high pressure into the
Great Basin, some light offshore flow is possible this morning
across portions of Southern California, with warm/dry conditions
developing during the afternoon. However, winds should remain light
during both episodes. Farther north, across the Northern Rockies
into the Dakotas, breezy west-northwesterly winds should develop
during the afternoon due to vertical mixing of enhanced mid-level
flow, however, RH values should remain above critical values to go
along with marginally receptive fuels in this region. Elsewhere the
fire-weather potential remains low, thus no highlights have been
introduced at this time.

Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0109 AM CDT Tue Apr 23 2019

Valid 241200Z - 251200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...Synopsis...
The upper-level low over northern Mexico will slowly shift eastward
into portions of West Texas, while farther north, zonal flow will
remain in place across the northern tier of the CONUS. At the
surface, high pressure will remain in control across much of the
West and the central/northern Plains. Once again, breezy
west-northwesterly winds will develop during the afternoon across
portions of Montana into the Dakota beneath enhanced mid-level flow.
RH values should again remain above critical thresholds amidst
marginally receptive fuels, thus no fire-weather highlights have
been introduced at this time.
