...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
CONTINUED AMPLIFICATION OF LARGE-SCALE TROUGHING ACROSS MUCH OF THE
CNTRL/ERN CONUS IS EXPECTED ON D2/TUE. UPPER RIDGING INITIALLY OVER
THE WRN CONUS SHOULD SHIFT EWD TO THE ROCKY MTNS THROUGH THE
PERIOD...WITH ANOTHER UPPER TROUGH APPROACHING THE WEST COAST. AT
THE SFC...WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION/CLOUDINESS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
UPPER TROUGH OVER THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS WILL LIMIT RH REDUCTIONS
ACROSS MUCH OF THESE REGIONS. ONE EXCEPTION MAY BE FOR PORTIONS OF
THE DAKOTAS...WHERE NLY WINDS UP TO 20 MPH WILL OCCUR BEHIND A COLD
FRONT. HOWEVER...RH VALUES ARE FORECAST TO BECOME ONLY MARGINALLY
REDUCED BY TUE AFTERNOON AS TEMPERATURES GENERALLY REMAIN IN THE
UPPER 60S TO LOWER 70S. THEREFORE...NO ELEVATED AREA HAS BEEN
INTRODUCED. ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE CONUS...STRONG WINDS ARE NOT
FORECAST TO OVERLAP AREAS OF SUFFICIENTLY LOWERED RH VALUES.
