...SYNOPSIS...
AN UPPER ANTICYCLONE OVER NW MEXICO WILL STRENGTHEN AND DRIFT NE
TOWARD THE DESERT SOUTHWEST TODAY. AS A RESULT...A LOW AMPLITUDE AND
BROAD RIDGE WILL DEVELOP OVER THE WESTERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE COUNTRY
BY FRIDAY MORNING. THIS WILL LEAD TO ABOVE NORMAL HIGH TEMPERATURES
FROM SRN/CENTRAL CA EWD ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES AND INTO THE
SOUTHERN PLAINS. STRONGER WESTERLIES WILL REMAIN CONFINED TO THE
PACIFIC NW AND NRN ROCKIES. DESPITE ONGOING DRYNESS AND THE WARM
TEMPERATURES ACROSS PARTS OF THE WEST...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL
REMAIN LOW GIVEN LIGHT LOW LEVEL WINDS. ACROSS THE EAST...AN UPPER
LOW WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DRIFT N/NE JUST OFF THE NORTHEAST
ATLANTIC COAST...AND WIDESPREAD BENEFICIAL RAINFALL WILL PERSIST
ACROSS MUCH OF NEW ENGLAND. MEANWHILE...A SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL
TRACK EWD FROM THE MS/MO VALLEY REGION...EXTENDING FROM THE GREAT
LAKES TO THE N-CENTRAL GULF COAST BY FRIDAY MORNING...BUT HIGH SFC
PRESSURE OVER THIS REGION WILL LEAD TO GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER
CONDITIONS. AS SUCH...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE NOT EXPECTED.
