Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1017 AM CST Tue Dec 26 2023

Valid 261700Z - 271200Z


Morning water vapor loops indicate a well-defined dry conveyor belt
overspreading the southern High Plains, which is associated with an
expansive midlevel cyclone over the central CONUS. Strong
west-northwesterly flow aloft associated with this feature, coupled
with a modest pressure gradient, will favor 20-25 mph sustained
west-northwesterly surface winds (with gusts upwards of 35 mph) from
southeast NM into the TX Trans-Pecos. Here, downslope warming/drying
and boundary-layer mixing into the deep layer of dry air will
contribute to 10-15 percent minimum RH this afternoon. While the
area did receive some precipitation this past weekend, freeze-cured
grasses may still support locally elevated fire-weather conditions
given a day or two of drying and the dry/breezy conditions.

Some breezy conditions are possible today across the
central/northern Plains as the surface pressure gradient slowly
relaxes. However, cool conditions dominate across most of the CONUS.
In addition, most of the CONUS has seen wetting rain within the last
few days. Therefore, fire weather concerns are minimal today.
