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

On D3/Friday, a midlevel low will devolve into a large-scale trough
over the eastern CONUS, while a related swath of strong deep-layer
west-southwesterly flow overspreads the Southeast. This may promote
locally breezy conditions across the region, though cool surface
temperatures/marginal RH reductions and recent rainfall should limit
most fire-weather concerns. 

Thereafter, a large-scale trough over the West will deamplify into a
shortwave trough and cross the southern Rockies on D5/Sunday. As
this occurs, an accompanying belt of strong westerly downslope flow
will promote lee troughing over the southern High Plains, with
dry/breezy conditions possible across portions of West TX. With that
said, marginal fuels across the area should mitigate the
fire-weather threat.
