.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0307 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014/

...SYNOPSIS...
EARLY-MORNING MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY INDICATES MULTIPLE SHORTWAVE
IMPULSES ADVANCING THROUGH THE FLOW AROUND A TROUGH THAT WILL
CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE GREAT PLAINS. UPSTREAM FROM THE
TROUGH...SUBSIDENCE WILL SUPPORT SFC RIDGING FROM PORTIONS OF THE
GREAT BASIN TO THE HIGH PLAINS IN THE WAKE OF A SWD/SEWD-ADVANCING
COLD FRONT. ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT...MODERATE TO LOCALLY STRONG
WINDS ARE EXPECTED. HOWEVER...IN BOTH CASES...RH VALUES ARE NOT
FORECAST TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS
WITHOUT WARMER/DRIER CONDITIONS. ALSO...SOME INCREASE IN NELY/ELY
SFC WINDS IS ANTICIPATED ON THE SWRN PERIPHERY OF GREAT BASIN SFC
RIDGING. HOWEVER...WITHOUT A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...RH REDUCTIONS
WILL BE LIMITED. FURTHERMORE...THE PRESENCE OF MOIST FUELS OWING TO
RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL MITIGATE THE FIRE-WEATHER RISK. AS
SUCH...NO FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED.
