Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook

Valid 201200Z - 261200Z

Mid-level flow is expected to remain amplified and progressive with
period of unsettled weather possible through the extended forecast
period. Transient ridging will slowly build over the central US,
keeping winds light and temperatures cool to mild. A deep trough
will persist off the Atlantic Coast through the next several days
before it slowly departs to the east. At the same time, a cut off
low and shortwave trough over the eastern Pacific will support
continuous onshore flow of moisture across parts of the western US
through the end of the week. Late in the work week and into the
weekend, the western US troughing will begin to move eastward,
bringing cool and unsettled weather to the central CONUS through the
end of the forecast period. Widespread precipitation and winter
weather are expected to develop over the Western and central US into
the weekend and early next week. To the east, surface high pressure
will strengthen in the wake of the departing Atlantic trough keeping
winds relatively light and temperatures cool. Some low RH is
possible over parts of the Southeast into the weekend, but winds are
expected to remain very light. With mild temperatures, modest winds,
and widespread precipitation expected over much of the US,
significant fire-weather conditions appear unlikely through the next
7 days.
