   Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0459 PM CDT Sat May 25 2024

   Valid 271200Z - 021200Z

   Fire weather concerns are expected to remain generally low in the
   extended, given large-scale ridge over the west limiting concerns
   over the Desert Southwest and High Plains where fuels are the
   driest. Occasional periods of localized Elevated and spotty Critical
   fire weather concerns will be possible in lee of the higher terrain
   across central and southern New Mexico, where downslope breezes will
   overlap single digit relative humidity and very warm temperatures.
   Overall, this threat looks to remain isolated and short in duration.

   Late in the period on D7/Friday, a trough across the Intermountain
   West will track into the Central Plains, with surface troughing
   strengthening again across the High Plains. Elevated to Critical
   fire weather may return across New Mexico into western Texas.
   Differences in long range model solutions lead to low confidence in
   including areas at this time.
