.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0234 AM CDT FRI MAY 29 2015/

...SYNOPSIS...
PRIMARILY ZONAL FLOW ALOFT WILL BE SITUATED ACROSS THE NRN CONUS
DURING THE D2 PERIOD. A SHARP IMPULSE /AND ASSOCIATED JET MAXIMA/
WILL GENERALLY REMAIN FARTHER NORTH ACROSS ONTARIO/QUEBEC.
CONCURRENTLY...HEIGHTS WILL SLOWLY RISE OVER THE SW STATES...WITH
SWLY FLOW OVERSPREADING CA AND THE WRN GREAT BASIN. THE SFC PATTERN
WILL FEATURE A FRONT GRADUALLY PUSHING E/SE OVER THE GREAT LAKES AND
MID MS VALLEY REGIONS...WITH RIDGING DEVELOPING IN ITS WAKE.
MEANWHILE...BROAD TROUGHING WILL STAY ESTABLISHED OVER THE
INTER-MOUNTAIN WEST.

A SUBTLE INCREASE IN H7 FLOW AND DEEP DIURNAL MIXING WILL SUPPORT
SOME BREEZINESS OVER THE WRN GREAT BASIN. ADDITIONALLY...RISING
HEIGHTS/WARMING TEMPS ALOFT AND ADIABATIC DRYING WILL FAVOR
CONTINUED LOW RH VALUES OVER THE REGION. AS A RESULT...LOCALLY
ELEVATED METEOROLOGICAL FIRE-WX CONDITIONS MAY BE REALIZED IN THIS
REGION. HOWEVER...GENERALLY UNRECEPTIVE FUELS AND THE SMALL SPATIAL
SCALE OF THE ELEVATED METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS PRECLUDE A
DELINEATION.
