   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

   Valid 121200Z - 181200Z

   Zonal flow aloft will give way to mid-level ridging and resultant
   weaker upper support across the western CONUS, while surface high
   pressure and cooler conditions persist across the central/eastern
   CONUS Days 3-4/Wednesday-Thursday. By Days 5-6/Friday-Saturday,
   upper ridging and southerly, moist low-level flow will overspread
   the Plains states as a mid-level trough impinges on the Interior
   West. Through Day 5/Friday, widespread significant wildfire-spread
   threats are expected to remain relatively limited. However, stronger
   flow aloft will likely overspread southern Parts of the Great Basin
   into the Lower Colorado River Basin as the mid-level trough slowly
   drifts eastward across the Southwest Days 6-8/Saturday-Monday.
   Better agreement in upper trough placement and timing has recently
   been noted in the latest medium-range guidance. Critical
   probabilities highlighting dry and breezy conditions supporting
   wildfire spread are likely across parts of the Southwest in future
   outlooks if consistency in guidance agreement is noted.
