Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0254 PM CST Fri Jan 05 2024

Valid 071200Z - 131200Z

A progressive upper-level pattern is expected to continue through 
the end of next week and possibly into next weekend. Shortwave
troughs are expected to move from the Southwest into the southern
Plains and eventually the East both around Monday and again around
next Friday as currently forecast. This overall pattern will favor
cool/cold conditions over a broad swath of the CONUS. Furthermore,
precipitation can be expected as strong surface cyclones develop
along with their parent troughs.

Guidance does show agreement that a minimum in precipitation is
probable in parts of the Trans-Pecos extending into the Edwards
Plateau and parts of the Rio Grande Valley. The driest and windiest
conditions appear most likely to occur this coming Sunday as well as
next Thursday, with lesser conditions possible on intervening days.
Current fuel status would suggest low potential for critical fire
weather in these areas. Additionally, there is the uncertainty of
where and how much precipitation will occur. These areas will
continue to be monitored as winds could be strong, but highlights
will continue to be withheld at this time.
