...SYNOPSIS...
POSITIVELY TILTED UPPER TROUGHING EXTENDS FROM THE GREAT LAKES
REGION SWWD TO THE CNTRL PLAINS THIS MORNING. A SHORTWAVE TROUGH
OVER THE NRN PLAINS WILL MOVE SWD TO THE CNTRL PLAINS TODAY...
ENCOURAGING AMPLIFICATION OF LARGE-SCALE UPPER TROUGHING OVER MUCH
OF THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS. ENHANCED MID-LEVEL WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH
THIS UPPER TROUGH WILL EXTEND FROM TX NEWD TO NEW ENGLAND. AT THE
SFC...NLY WINDS OF 10-20 MPH WILL OCCUR THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS
PORTIONS OF WRN ND AND ERN MT IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SHORTWAVE
TROUGH DESCRIBED ABOVE. HOWEVER...RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN
ABOVE 20 PERCENT OWING MAINLY TO COOL TEMPERATURES. GIVEN THESE
MARGINAL EXPECTED WIND SPEEDS/RH VALUES...AN ELEVATED AREA DOES NOT
APPEAR WARRANTED. MINIMAL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
THE REMAINDER OF THE CONUS.
