The potential for widespread elevated and critical fire weather
conditions across the CONUS is low. Broad cyclonic flow aloft will
reside across the northern half of the U.S through the forecast
period. At the surface, a cold front will continue to sweep eastward
across the center of the country ushering in a much cooler airmass.
Colder air and high pressure behind the front should reduce wind
speeds and increase humidity limiting fire weather potential. Any
fire weather conditions that do develop over New Mexico and the
southern Great Basin will likely be local in nature.
