The potential for critical fire-weather conditions is low through
the extended forecast period. 

On D4/Friday, a persistent midlevel low will gradually devolve into
a positive-tilt trough over the eastern CONUS, while a related
southwesterly jet streak overspreads the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.
A modest pressure gradient beneath the strong flow aloft will favor
breezy/gusty surface winds across much of the Southeast into the
southern Mid-Atlantic states, where marginal RH reductions are
possible. However, generally cool surface temperatures and
recent/ongoing rainfall should limit most fire-weather concerns

Thereafter, an unconsolidated/split-flow pattern is expected across
the CONUS, which will generally limit the development/overlap of
warm/dry/windy conditions. One exception may be on D6/Sunday across
the southern High Plains, where a southern-stream jet max may
promote dry/breezy downslope flow. With that said, critical
conditions are unlikely owing to marginal fuels.
