VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE PLAINS...AS THE LEADING
EDGE OF AN EXTENSIVE WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM ADVANCES SEWD ACROSS
PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE CNTRL ROCKIES. IN RESPONSE...A
SFC TROUGH WILL STRENGTHEN IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES. THE ATTENDANT
ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT SHOULD PROMOTE AREAS OF MODERATE TO
LOCALLY STRONG SFC WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SWRN STATES TO THE
CNTRL/SRN HIGH PLAINS. IN THESE AREAS...MODEST DIURNAL RH REDUCTIONS
WILL BE AUGMENTED BY DOWNSLOPE-FLOW-ENCOURAGED WARMING/DRYING.
HOWEVER...WITHOUT A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...AND WITHOUT STRONGER SFC
WINDS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS ARE UNNECESSARY.
