Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0346 PM CST Wed Dec 20 2023

Valid 221200Z - 281200Z

Across the CONUS, amplified and progressive mid-level flow is
expected through much of the extended forecast period. Pacific
troughing will move inland and continue eastward into the central US
starting Friday, while transient ridging over the eastern US will
gradually move offshore this weekend. Cool temperatures and
unsettled weather are likely over the western and central CONUS with
the passage of the upper trough and a surface cold front. Widespread
precipitation is expected over the CONUS through the weekend and
into next week as the upper-level system moves to the east. Toward
the end of the forecast period, another Pacific trough will move
onshore over the West Coast as temporary ridging builds over the
central US. Onshore flow will support widespread precipitation with
cool to mild temperatures. Given the lack of strong winds juxtaposed
with warm temperatures and dry fuels, widespread critical
fire-weather conditions appear unlikely through the next 7 days.
