...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE CNTRL CONUS ON
D2/MON. THIS WILL OCCUR AS A WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM SHIFTS SEWD ACROSS
PORTIONS OF THE ERN GREAT BASIN AND ROCKIES...AND A RIDGE BUILDS
INTO PORTIONS OF THE NWRN CONUS. MEANWHILE...STRENGTHENING
SUBSIDENCE UPSTREAM FROM THE TROUGH WILL ENCOURAGE SFC RIDGING FROM
PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE HIGH PLAINS IN THE WAKE OF A COLD
FRONT THAT WILL ADVANCE SWD/SEWD. DESPITE AREAS OF STRONG WINDS
OCCURRING ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT...RH VALUES ARE NOT FORECAST
TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS WITHOUT
WARMER/DRIER CONDITIONS. ALSO...THE AFOREMENTIONED GREAT BASIN SFC
RIDGING WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY ENHANCED NELY TO ELY FLOW OVER THE
SRN CA COASTAL RANGES/ADJACENT FOOTHILLS. HOWEVER...WITHOUT A
WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...RH REDUCTIONS WILL BE HINDERED. ALSO...FUEL
MOISTENING OWING TO RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL MITIGATE THE
FIRE-WEATHER RISK. AS SUCH...NO FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN
INCLUDED.
