Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0126 AM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

Valid 221200Z - 231200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...Synopsis...
An upper trough over the western U.S. will deepen and slowly shift
east over the Great Basin today. Downstream, a broad swath of deep
layer southwesterly flow will persist east of the Rockies. Strong
surface high pressure centered over the Great Lakes will track east
toward New England. Gulf moisture will slosh northeast as Wednesday
cold front retreats as a warm front across the lower Ohio Valley
into eastern TX. Fire weather concerns are not expected given
widespread precipitation over the last few days east of the Rockies,
and a general lack of strong surface winds aligning with low RH
values.

Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0126 AM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

Valid 231200Z - 241200Z

...Synopsis...
The western upper trough centered over the Great Basin will track
eastward to the southern/central Rockies on Friday. As heights fall,
deep layer southwesterly flow will increase and a weak surface
trough will develop across the southern High Plains. This will lead
to breezy southwest surface winds across much of NM. RH values also
will fall into the 15-25 percent range. This will result in elevated
fire weather potential across the eastern NM Plains into parts of
far southeast CO and southwestern TX. While gusty winds and low RH
will also exist across western and central NM, fuel conditions are
less favorable than further east, limiting fire weather concerns.
