.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0229 AM CDT TUE OCT 21 2014/

...SYNOPSIS...
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL REMAIN LOW TODAY. A TROUGH OVER THE
WESTERN U.S. WILL TRACK EWD TOWARD THE ROCKIES WHILE AN UPPER LOW
CLOSES OFF OVER THE ERN U.S. SFC LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE
ERN UPPER TROUGH/LOW WILL MOVE ACROSS AND EVENTUALLY OFFSHORE THE
MID-ATLANTIC WHILE ANOTHER SFC LOW MOVES NE TOWARD NEW ENGLAND. AS A
RESULT...WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FROM THE
UPPER OH VALLEY N AND E TOWARD THE ATLANTIC COAST. MIDLEVEL MOISTURE
WILL CONTINUE TO STREAM N FROM THE FOUR CORNERS/SRN ROCKIES TOWARD
THE NRN ROCKIES AHEAD OF THE EWD PROGRESSING SHORTWAVE TROUGH. THIS
WILL LEAD TO WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE SRN
HIGH PLAINS N TO THE NRN ROCKIES AHEAD OF THE UPPER TROUGH AND EWD
ADVANCING PACIFIC COLD FRONT. ANY STRONGER WINDS ACROSS THE PLAINS
ASSOCIATED WITH A TIGHTENING SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THE
ROCKIES LEE TROUGH AND SFC HIGH BUILDING OVER THE GREAT LAKES WILL
NOT BE WELL ALIGNED WITH LOW RH CONDITIONS...LIMITING FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS.
