Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook

Valid 101200Z - 161200Z

In the wake of a strong upper-level trough, broad cyclonic flow
within the southern U.S. will develop by the middle of this week in
advance of the next strong trough that will eject into the southern
Plains late this week. Another weaker upper-level trough will follow
a similar path this coming weekend into early next week. Cold air at
the surface will be continually reinforced with some farther
southern movement with each trough passage. Fire weather concerns
will generally remain low on account of these cold temperatures
and/or precipitation associated with the troughs.

Areas that could potentially see some increase in fire weather risk
are from the Trans-Pecos into the Rio Grand Valley/South Texas as
the late-week trough moves through the southern Plains. Dry and
windy conditions will first occur Thursday in the Trans-Pecos as the
surface low deepens in West Texas. On Friday, dry northwesterly flow
will overspread the Rio Grand Valley into South Texas behind the
cold front. Fuels will experience some drying from dry and very
windy conditions on Monday/Tuesday. As newer fuel data becomes
available, highlights may be considered.
