DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK  
0318 AM CDT TUE MAY 30 2017  
 
VALID 311200Z - 011200Z  
   
..SYNOPSIS
 
 
A RATHER AMPLIFIED PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO PREVAIL OVER THE CONUS ON  
WEDNESDAY, AS A DEEP UPPER TROUGH PERSISTS OVER MUCH OF THE EAST,  
WHILE AN UPPER TROUGH MOVES INLAND OVER THE WEST, AND AN UPPER RIDGE  
BETWEEN THE TWO TROUGHS MOVES INTO THE CENTRAL/NORTHERN ROCKIES.  
   
..PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST AND GREAT BASIN
 
 
AS RELATIVELY STRONG SOUTHERLY FLOW OVERSPREADS PORTIONS OF THE  
SOUTHWEST AND GREAT BASIN AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING TROUGH, ELEVATED  
TO LOCALLY CRITICAL METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO  
DEVELOP DURING THE AFTERNOON, WITH WINDS APPROACHING OR EXCEEDING 20  
MPH AS RH DROPS BELOW 15%. THE PRIMARY LIMITING FACTOR PRECLUDING A  
MORE SUBSTANTIAL THREAT IS THE LACK OF AVAILABLE DRY FUELS OVER MUCH  
OF THE GREAT BASIN, BASED ON RECENT FUEL GUIDANCE. AN ELEVATED AREA  
HAS BEEN INTRODUCED OVER PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST AR, SOUTHEAST NV, AND  
SOUTHWEST UT, WHERE RECENT GUIDANCE SUGGESTS FUELS HAVE BECOME  
SOMEWHAT MORE RECEPTIVE.
