.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0228 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017/

Little change to the surface and upper-air pattern is expected
today, as a deep-layer cyclone largely remains in place across
western Ontario and the upper Great Lakes region. An upper ridge
will remain in place over most of the West, though a weak upper
trough will undercut the ridge into portions of the Southwest.

The fire weather threat is expected to be relatively low today, with
little overlap between strong low-level flow and critical RH
potential. Relatively dry and windy conditions will again prevail
across much of the northern and central Plains, but with modest
cooling and a slight decrease in low-level flow expected compared to
Sunday, nothing more than locally elevated conditions are expected
at this time.
