...SYNOPSIS...
A SERIES OF MID-LEVEL TROUGHS ACROSS THE NORTHEAST UNITED STATES
WILL WORK IN CONCERT TO CARVE OUT A CLOSED LOW LATE IN THE PERIOD IN
THE VICINITY OF CAPE COD. AS THIS OCCURS...A SURFACE COLD FRONT WILL
EXITS THE EAST COAST...USHERING IN COOLER/DRYER AIR AND WEAKER WIND
SPEEDS ASSOCIATED WITH SURFACE-HIGH PRESSURE. THE GENERALLY LIGHT
WINDS AND COOLER SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL ACT TO LIMIT THE OVERALL
FIRE-WEATHER THREAT. ONE EXCEPTION TO THE WEAKER WIND SPEEDS MAY BE
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS WHERE GUSTY WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE
IN THE WAKE OF THE DEPARTING COLD FRONT. EVEN HERE...HOWEVER...THE
FIRE-WEATHER THREAT WILL BE TEMPERED BY COOL TEMPERATURES.

ACROSS THE WEST...A BROAD LOW/TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY WORK
ITS WAY SOUTH-SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST UNITED STATES.
DOWNSTREAM FROM THIS TROUGH A LOW-AMPLITUDE RIDGE WILL SLOWLY BUILD
EASTWARD FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST UNITED
STATES. THIS TROUGH WILL RESULT IN WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVER AND
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST...ACTING TO LIMIT THE
FIRE-WEATHER THREAT.
