...SYNOPSIS...
A MID-LEVEL SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL EJECT NEWD FROM THE SWRN STATES TO
THE MIDDLE MISSOURI VALLEY WHILE ELONGATING IN SWLY FLOW ALOFT. THIS
WILL OCCUR AS AN UPSTREAM SHORTWAVE TROUGH RELOADS
LARGER-SCALE...WRN-CONUS CYCLONIC FLOW. A COLD FRONT ATTENDANT TO
THE FORMERLY MENTIONED SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL ADVANCE SWD/SEWD ACROSS
PORTIONS OF THE CNTRL CONUS...WHILE SUBSIDENT FLOW ALOFT BREEDS
STRENGTHENING SFC HIGH PRESSURE FROM PARTS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE
NRN/CNTRL PLAINS. AREAS OF MODERATE TO LOCALLY STRONG WINDS WILL
EXIST ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT. HOWEVER...RH VALUES ARE NOT
EXPECTED TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS ON
EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT. NELY TO ELY SFC WINDS MAY INCREASE ACROSS
THE SRN CA COASTAL RANGES/ADJACENT FOOTHILLS IN RESPONSE TO AN
ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT PERIPHERAL TO SFC RIDGING ACROSS THE
CNTRL GREAT BASIN. HOWEVER...MOIST FUELS ASSOCIATED WITH RECENT
PRECIPITATION AND THE LACK OF A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS WILL GREATLY
LIMIT THE FIRE-WEATHER POTENTIAL. AS SUCH...QUIESCENT FIRE-WEATHER
CONDITIONS ARE ANTICIPATED FOR D2/FRI.
