NO CHANGES TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST ARE REQUIRED. SPOTTY/LOCALLY
ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS FAR NE NM/NW TX PANHANDLE/W
OK PANHANDLE/FAR SE CO...AS SFC TROUGHING IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES
AND BREEZY W/SW WINDS DEVELOP. ADDITIONALLY...DIURNAL MIXING AND
DOWNSLOPE FLOW WILL RESULT IN RELATIVELY LOW RH VALUES. AS
SUCH...SPOTTY ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE FOR A FEW HOURS THIS
AFTERNOON. HOWEVER...WHILE FINER FUELS WILL CONTINUE TO DRY...THE
RELATIVELY LOCALIZED NATURE OF ELEVATED CONDITIONS AND THE LACK OF
WARMER TEMPERATURES PRECLUDE A DELINEATION.
