Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0330 PM CST Tue Dec 19 2023

Valid 211200Z - 271200Z

An active mid-level flow regime is expected to continue across the
CONUS through the extended forecast period. Prominent Pacific
troughing is forecast to move inland and continue eastward into the
central US late this week and into the weekend. Transient ridging
over the eastern and central US will gradually shift eastward as
stronger westerly flow develops. Occasional dry offshore flow is
possible over parts of the Southeast into the weekend, but winds are
expected to remain light. Western US troughing will continue to
amplify through the weekend supporting southerly return flow and
widespread precipitation over the western and central CONUS. The
flow pattern will remain highly amplified into next week as a second
Pacific trough approaches the West Coast. As the western troughing
shifts eastward, cool and unsettled weather is expected over much of
the US through the end of the forecast period. With cool to mild
temperatures and widespread precipitation expected over much of the
country, significant fire-weather conditions appear unlikely through
the next 7 days.
