A POSITIVELY TILTED LONGWAVE TROUGH WITH MULTIPLE EMBEDDED SHORTWAVE
CIRCULATIONS LOCATED FROM THE NRN PLAINS SWWD TO SRN CA WILL SHIFT
SLOWLY EWD THROUGH THE PERIOD. AT THE SFC...AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
CENTERED OVER ERN CO/WY EARLY THIS MORNING WILL MOVE NEWD TO THE
GREAT LAKES REGION BY TONIGHT. A TRAILING COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH
THIS SFC LOW WILL PROGRESS SWD ACROSS THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS...AND IT
SHOULD BE IN THE VICINITY OF NERN NM...THE TX PANHANDLE...AND MAIN
BODY OF OK EARLY THIS EVENING. A REMNANT AREA OF WEAK LOW
PRESSURE/TROUGHING WILL LIKELY REMAIN OVER ERN NM THIS AFTERNOON.
GUSTY DOWNSLOPE SLY/SWLY WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS WEAK LOW AND
ENHANCED LOW/MIDLEVEL SWLY FLOW MAY PROMOTE SOME LOCALLY REDUCED RH
VALUES ACROSS PORTIONS OF ERN NM AND W TX. HOWEVER...CONSIDERABLE
CLOUDINESS AND FORECAST PRECIPITATION SHOULD GREATLY LIMIT BOTH A
SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN DAYTIME TEMPERATURES AND THE
SPATIAL/TEMPORAL EXTENT OF LOWERED RH. WITH UNRECEPTIVE/MOIST FUELS
ALSO IN PLACE ACROSS THIS REGION...NO FIRE WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE
BEEN INTRODUCED ACROSS THE SRN HIGH PLAINS.
