Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0336 PM CST Thu Jan 04 2024

Valid 061200Z - 121200Z

Fire weather concerns are expected to remain low through the
extended period. Enhanced flow across the southern US will bring
localized windy/dry conditions D3 - Saturday and D4 - Sunday.
Potential for widespread rainfall across already moist fuels on D2
Friday will further limit the potential for fire spread. 

A potent surface low is expected to develop across the southern
Plains on D5 - Monday tracking eastward before moving into the Upper
Ohio River Valley by D7 - Wednesday. This will bring the potential
for very strong surface winds but also additional precipitation
chances. The driest conditions are expected to be across portions of
southwestern and far western Texas on D5 - Monday through D7 -
Wednesday, where less precipitation is likely with multiple periods
of windy/dry conditions. Locally Elevated conditions may be
possible, particularly across far western Texas south into the Rio
Grande Valley. Given the seasonably moist conditions of fuels and
potential for multiple rounds of precipitation keeping the threat
localized, confidence remains too low to include any areas at this
