...SYNOPSIS...
IN THE MID LEVELS...MEAN CYCLONIC FLOW WILL COVER THE WRN CONUS
AMIDST AN AMPLIFYING TROUGH OVER THE NORTHWEST AND A CYCLONE SLOWLY
PROGRESSING EWD ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST. RIDGING WILL EXTEND NWD FROM
AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER THE SERN CONUS ACROSS PARTS OF THE ERN
PLAINS AND MS VALLEY...WHILE A TROUGH ADVANCES EWD ACROSS PORTIONS
OF THE NORTHEAST. THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN
OF THE WRN CONUS...THOUGH PW VALUES AND LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ARE
EXPECTED TO BE SUFFICIENTLY ROBUST TO LIMIT THE RISK FOR PURELY DRY
THUNDERSTORMS. FURTHERMORE...STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO
OVERLAP WITH LOW SFC RH ACROSS THE CONUS. FOR THESE
REASONS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE NOT BEEN INCLUDED.
