Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0338 PM CDT Sun Mar 10 2024

Valid 121200Z - 181200Z

A trough will amplify across the western CONUS on D3/Tue and D4/Wed
with lee cyclogenesis in the central Plains and strengthening
mid-level flow across the Southwest. This will lead to Elevated to
Critical fire weather conditions across portions of the southern
High Plains.

...D3/Tue- Southern High Plains...
Lee cyclogenesis and a deeply mixed atmosphere will lead to some dry
and breezy conditions across the southern High Plains on Tuesday.
The worst conditions are expected across portions of Far West Texas
where mid-level flow will be somewhat stronger and mixing is
expected to be deeper.

...D4/Wed - Southern High Plains...
On Wednesday, critical fire weather conditions are expected across
much of the southern High Plains. This is a result of strengthening
mid-level flow (50-60 mph at 500mb) and a deepening surface cyclone
in the vicinity of western Oklahoma and southern Kansas. Much of
this region has been dry over the past week and significant drying
will continue leading up to Wednesday. Therefore, a broad region is
likely to have significant fire weather concerns on Wednesday.
