SPC Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0125 AM CST Sun Jan 21 2018 Valid 221200Z - 231200Z ...Synopsis... ...Portions of the Southern Plains... The strong upper low and attendant trough centered over the Plains Monday morning will quickly eject northeast toward the Great Lakes by the end of the period. Strong deep-layer west/northwesterly flow on the back side of this system will persist over the central and southern Plains in conjunction with a still-tight surface pressure gradient. While the surface pressure gradient will weaken through the day, breezy winds are still expected given strength of deep-layer flow and deep boundary-layer mixing. Temperatures will be cooler, with highs generally in the 50s, but regional forecast soundings show mixing to around 4 kft. With PW values near 0.15 in, RH values will once again fall into the 12-20 percent range. West/northwest winds around 15-20 mph with higher gusts are anticipated, and some spotty critical conditions are possible. Winds will decrease during the evening and overnight hours as the surface pressure gradient relaxes and the upper-level system shifts well northeast. RH values also will rebound into the 40-60 percent range. ..Leitman.. 01/21/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product... Read more

SPC Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0124 AM CST Sun Jan 21 2018 Valid 211200Z - 221200Z ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR THE SOUTHERN PLAINS VICINITY... ...Synopsis... ...Southern Plains Vicinity... A deepening upper low and attendant trough will track eastward across the southern and central Rockies into the Plains. Strong height falls and an intense southwesterly midlevel jet streak will overspread the Plains by late morning to early afternoon. This will result in the development of a lee cyclone in the vicinity of southeast CO/southwest KS, which will shift east along the OK/KS border through the late afternoon. Surface temperatures will be cooler across eastern NM into parts of western TX compared to previous days, but above normal temperatures are expected across eastern portions of the TX Panhandle into central TX and western OK. As temperatures warm, deep boundary-layer mixing will occur and RH values will fall into the 10-20 percent range from southwest TX/far southeast NM into western OK. Critical fire weather conditions are expected in this swath as very strong west/southwest surface winds develop. Sustained wind speeds of 25-35 mph with gusts to 50 mph are possible. These strong winds will encompass a larger area of the southern High Plains from eastern NM all the way into central OK and TX. Surrounding the critical area, RH values will be more marginal and the duration of any critical conditions, should they develop, will be brief. By late afternoon, a cold front will begin to drop southeast across the OK/TX Panhandles and northwest OK and winds will shift to the northwest into the overnight hours. Winds will remain gusty overnight for much of the region but RH values will rebound into the 40-80 percent range. ..Leitman.. 01/21/2018 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
1243 AM EST Sun Jan 21 2018

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 0000 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through
0530 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

Broad strong high pressure extending from the western Atlantic
into the Gulf of Mexico is creating a gradient tight enough to
support winds to gale force off the coast of Colombia through
tonight. The gale force winds will diminish early Sunday, but
remain strong to near gale-force through Monday. See the latest
NHC High Seas Forecast under AWIPS/WMO headers MIAHSFEP2/FZPN03
KNHC for more details.

...MONSOON TROUGH/ITCZ...

The monsoon trough enters the Atlantic Ocean near 08N13W and
continues to 04N20W. The ITCZ begins near 04N20W and extends to
00N35W and terminates near 00N48W. No significant convection is
observed.

...DISCUSSION...

...GULF OF MEXICO...

Ridging extends across the western Atlantic 30N, across northern
Florida and into the Deep South States. Fresh southeast return
flow is observed over the northwest Gulf between the ridge and
lower pressure over the central Plains. Fresh easterlies are also
noted over the Straits of Florida and Yucatan Channel. Elsewhere
moderate east to southeast winds persist across the northern Gulf,
with lighter flow over the southwest Gulf. A mid to upper level
trough is digging eastward across the lower Mississippi Valley,
supporting showers over the eastern Gulf and a surface trough from
the southeast Gulf through northeast Florida. Patch fog is being
reported off the central coast of Louisiana, but otherwise
visibility remains good. The moderate to fresh SE winds will
continue across the western Gulf through this evening ahead of a
cold front moving southeast off the Texas coast around sunrise on
Mon. The cold front will extend from the mouth of the Mississippi
to Veracruz Mexico late Mon, and then stall from southwest Florida
to near Veracruz Mexico on Tue night. Remnants of the front will
lift N on Wed and Thu.

...CARIBBEAN SEA...

Clusters of showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across the
northwest Caribbean, related to divergence aloft at the base a
sharp upper trough extending from the northeast Gulf of Mexico to
the Yucatan peninsula. Elsewhere, in addition to the gale force
winds mentioned in the Special Feature section off Colombia, fresh
to strong trade winds are noted in latest scatterometer data and
buoy observations over much of the central Caribbean, lee of Cuba
and Windward Passage. Seas are reaching 9 to 11 ft over the south
central Caribbean with highest seas off Colombia. Moderate to
fresh trades and 5 to 7 ft seas are noted in the eastern Caribbean
and east of the Windward and Leeward Islands. Persistent ridging
north of the area will allow strong to near gale force trades
to pulse along the northwest coast of Colombia through Thu night.
Strong east winds are forecast across the Central Caribbean
waters on Sun, diminishing slightly on Mon as the ridge weakens.
Moderate to fresh trades will continue across the tropical Atlc
waters E of the Windwards through Thu night.

...ATLANTIC OCEAN...

Ridging extends along roughly 30N, anchored by a 1026 mb high
pressure area centered near 30N70W. Divergence aloft on the east
side of an upper trough over the Gulf of Mexico is supporting a
few showers off the Florida coast and northern Bahamas. A cold
front reaches from 31N43W to 21N65W. A recent scatterometer pass
showed fresh trade winds across the Turks/Caicos and southern
Bahamas, along the dissipating stationary front trailing the end
of the cold front. A few showers are noted within 210 nm east of
the front north of 25N. Farther east, 1035 mb high pressure is
centered off Portugal, with an associated ridge extending over the
region north of 20N, supporting fresh to strong NE winds off the
coast of North Africa between the Canary Islands and Cabo Verde.
Farther south, moderate to fresh trade persist across the deep
tropics. The High pressure will shift east to just southwest of
Bermuda through Mon, then shift north of Bermuda Mon night
allowing a cold front to move off the northeast Florida coast Tue
morning. The cold front will reach from near Bermuda to Straits of
Florida Wed night and from 27N65W to Central Cuba on Thu night.
Strengthening high pres in the wake of the front will support
strong NE wind W of 73W.

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
701 PM EST Sat Jan 20 2018

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 1800 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through
2330 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

Broad strong high pressure extending from the western Atlantic
into the Gulf of Mexico is creating a gradient tight enough to
support winds to gale force off the coast of Colombia through
tonight. The gale force winds will diminish early Sunday, but
remain strong to near gale-force through Monday. See the latest
NHC High Seas Forecast under AWIPS/WMO headers MIAHSFEP2/FZPN03
KNHC for more details.

...MONSOON TROUGH/ITCZ...

The monsoon trough enters the Atlantic Ocean near 07N12W and
continues to 02N20W. The ITCZ begins near 02N20W 00N40W.
Scattered moderate rain showers are from 01N to 03N between 35W-
45W.

...DISCUSSION...

...GULF OF MEXICO...

A broad surface ridge extends from the SW N Atlc waters across
Florida, the SE CONUS, into the Gulf and into inland Mexico. This
setting is providing the basin with light to moderate return
flow, except for locally fresh wind off the coast of Texas. A
middle to upper level low centered between Louisiana and
Mississippi extends a trough S-SW across the basin. To the east,
SW flow associated with the NW periphery of a ridge centered in
the south-central Caribbean supports diffluent flow, which is
supporting cloudiness and possible isolated showers across the E
Gulf, the Yucatan Channel and the Florida Straits. A weakness in
the ridge analyzed as a surface trough along the SE coast of
Florida into the Straits of Florida may enhance the shower
activity for the SE Gulf. Otherwise, low level moisture
convergence support isolated showers over Louisiana adjacent
waters as indicated by radar imagery. The next cold front will
come off the coast of Texas Monday morning, extend from the
Florida Big Bend SW to near Tuxpan, Mexico Tuesday morning and
then is expected to stall over South Florida to the central
Gulf waters Wednesday. Remnants of the front will lift N late on
Wed, with strong NE winds developing across the NW Gulf waters.

...CARIBBEAN SEA...

A broad middle to upper level ridge centered over the south-
central waters covers the Caribbean. Diffluent flow in the
western periphery of this ridge along with moderate to high low
level moisture support scattered showers within 175 nm west of a
surface trough that extends along Nicaragua, Costa Rica and
northern Panama adjacent waters. Isolated showers are elsewhere
west of 75W. The tail of a weakening stationary front extends
across the Windward Passage to near 18N80W supporting isolated
showers in that region and over portions of Hispaniola. Shallow
moisture in the trade winds may support scattered to isolated
showers across Puerto Rico and adjacent waters. Otherwise,
strong high pressure over SW N Atlc waters supports fresh to
near-gale force winds in the south-central basin, increasing to
gale-force off the coast of Colombia tonight through Sunday
morning. See the Special Features section for more details.

...HISPANIOLA...

Partly cloudy skies prevail across the island as the tail of a
weakening stationary front extends across the Windward Passage
towards western Jamaica adjacent waters. Isolated showers are
occurring along the northern half of the Island. Similar weather
conditions are forecast through Sunday morning as the front
dissipates. Fresh northeasterly winds will continue across the
Windward Passage through tonight and then it will limit to the
Atlc approaches as the ridge slides towards the central Atlc
waters.

...ATLANTIC OCEAN...

Strong high pressure covers the SW N Atlc waters being anchored
by a 1026 mb high near 29N72W. A weakness in the ridge is
analyzed as a surface trough along the SE Florida coast SW
towards the Straits of Florida. This surface feature in
underneath diffluent flow aloft between a trough over the Gulf
and a broad ridge covering the Caribbean Sea. This scenario
support cloudiness and possible isolated showers in the northern
Bahamas, the Great Bahama Bank and the straits. A broad middle
to upper trough over the north-central Atlc with base near 30N
continue to support a cold front that extends from 30N47W SW to
22N59W to 21N67W. From 21N67W, the front transitions to a
weakening stationary front that traverses the Windward Passage.
Scattered to isolated showers are N of 24N between 40W and 55W.
The remaining eastern Atlc is under the influence of the Azores
high that extends a ridge axis near 23N.
The front in the central Atlc will continue to weaken as it loses
support from aloft. A remnant surface trough is forecast in the
central waters by Monday morning. The next cold front will exit
the NE Florida coast Tuesday afternoon.
