Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0334 PM CST Wed Jan 03 2024

Valid 051200Z - 111200Z

Fire weather concerns are expected to remain low through the
extended period.  A trough across the central US on D3 Friday will
bring increasing surface winds but also potential for widespread
precipitation across the central and southern Plains. A small
corridor of Elevated fire weather conditions may be possible across
South-Central Texas where less rainfall is forecast. Fuel guidance
suggests that fuels are not expected to become sufficiently dry.  

An active pattern will continue, favoring southerly storm track and
enhanced westerly flow through the end of the extended D4 - Saturday
through D8 - Wednesday. Fuels across the southern Plains may
experience some drying, with potential for Elevated to Critical fire
weather concerns to develop. The best potential for drying will be
across portions of southwestern and far western Texas where less
precipitation is likely along with multiple rounds of windy/dry
conditions. Uncertainty in the status of fuels and potential for
multiple rounds of precipitation leaves predictability too low to
include any areas at this time.
