FLOW WILL REMAIN CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN U.S. DURING THIS
TIME...BUT PERIODS OF INCREASED MOISTURE AND RAIN WILL RETURN TO THE
PLAINS AND CENTRAL U.S. DURING THIS TIME. BY EARLY NEXT WEEK...DAY
6-8/MON-WED...A STRONGER AND MORE AMPLIFIED TROUGH WILL EMERGE ALONG
THE PACIFIC COAST AND MOVE INLAND OVER THE WEST. THIS SYSTEM WILL
BRING STRONGER DEEP LAYER WESTERLIES TO THE SOUTHWEST U.S. AND
ELEVATED TO POTENTIALLY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
POSSIBLE FROM THE GREAT BASIN INTO THE SRN HIGH PLAINS. THE GREATEST
THREAT WILL LIKELY REMAIN CONFINED TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST
STATES WEST OF THE ROCKIES DUE TO ONGOING GREEN-UP AND THE
