.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0308 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014/

...SYNOPSIS...
A DEEPENING MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL BEGIN TO EJECT EWD ACROSS THE
PLAINS TOWARD THE MS VALLEY. THIS WILL OCCUR AS THE LEADING EDGE OF
A WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM REACHES THE BASE OF THE TROUGH FROM THE
NW...AND AN EMBEDDED CYCLONE PROGRESSES NEWD ACROSS THE UPPER MS
VALLEY. AREAS OF STRONG NWLY SFC WINDS WILL AFFECT THE GREAT PLAINS
BENEATH THE WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM...IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT.
HOWEVER...COOL TEMPERATURES WILL MINIMIZE THE FIRE-WEATHER RISK
WHILE KEEPING RH VALUES ABOVE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. FARTHER W...A
MID-LEVEL RIDGE WILL GRADUALLY BREAK DOWN OVER THE WRN STATES...AS A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH APPROACHES THE NW COAST. IN THE MEANTIME...A
RELATIVELY ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT OVER THE SWRN PERIPHERY OF A
SFC RIDGE ACROSS THE CNTRL GREAT BASIN WILL SUPPORT ENHANCED
NELY/ELY WINDS ACROSS THE SRN CA COASTAL RANGES/ADJACENT FOOTHILLS.
HOWEVER...RECENT WETTING RAINS AND RESULTANT MOIST FUELS WILL
MINIMIZE THE FIRE-WEATHER POTENTIAL.
