.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0215 AM CDT MON AUG 31 2015/

...SYNOPSIS...
AS AN UPPER TROUGH LIFTS FROM THE NRN PLAINS NEWD INTO CANADA
TODAY...A BELT OF ENHANCED MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL REMAIN MOSTLY
CONFINED TO THE NRN TIER OF STATES WITHIN THE CONUS. UPPER RIDGING
WILL PREVAIL OVER MUCH OF THE CNTRL AND SWRN STATES. AT THE SFC...
LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER TROUGH DESCRIBED ABOVE WILL
LIKEWISE MOVE NEWD OVER MANITOBA/ONTARIO THROUGH THIS EVENING...WITH
A TRAILING COLD FRONT MOVING EWD/SEWD ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
NRN/CNTRL PLAINS. BREEZY POST-FRONTAL WINDS AROUND 10-15 MPH ACROSS
THE NRN PLAINS SHOULD NOT ALIGN WITH RH VALUES LOW ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY
AN ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER AREA. ELSEWHERE...LOCALLY ELEVATED
CONDITIONS MAY OCCUR ACROSS PORTIONS OF CNTRL/WRN WY THIS
AFTERNOON...BUT THE BRIEF/SPOTTY NATURE OF EXPECTED GUSTY WINDS
CONTINUES TO PRECLUDE AN ELEVATED DESIGNATION.
