Day 3-8 Fire Weather Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0301 PM CST Sat Dec 09 2023

Valid 111200Z - 171200Z

Fire weather concerns will be limited through the extended period.
Long-range ensemble guidance continues to show reasonably good
agreement in the development of persistent surface high pressure
over much of the country during the upcoming work week. A cooler
continental air mass overspreading the country in the wake of this
weekend's cold front across the eastern CONUS, combined with weak
pressure gradient winds, should limit fire weather potential. 

Localized concerns may materialize across southern CA into the lower
CO River Valley where the probability for wetting precipitation will
remain low through next weekend. The passage of a weak mid-level
disturbance around D5/Wed into D6/Thur may support offshore flow
along the southern CA coast with an attendant risk of dry/breezy
conditions (though confidence in a robust fire weather threat
remains limited at this range).
