Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0202 AM CDT Thu May 23 2024

Valid 241200Z - 251200Z

A large-scale trough will progress eastward across the central and 
western CONUS Friday, while a related belt of moderate westerlies
aloft overspreads a dry and deeply mixed air mass over the
Southwest. A mid-level shortwave trough digging near the Pacific
coastline will move onshore near central CA and the Great Basin,
promoting a deepening surface low just ahead of it. A tightening
surface pressure gradient will yield breezy surface winds late
Friday afternoon into early Friday evening, and combine with low RH
across much of AZ and NM. The highest chances for a few hours of
critical fire weather conditions will likely develop over northeast
AZ and far western NM. However, these conditions will only overlap a
small area of receptive fuels. Therefore, the Critical area has been
removed for the aforementioned region.
