...SYNOPSIS...
IN THE MID LEVELS...A TROUGH WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE GREAT BASIN AS AN
UPSTREAM WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM ADVANCES SSEWD. IN RESPONSE TO THESE
DEVELOPMENTS...A BAND OF MID-LEVEL SWLYS WILL ELONGATE AND
STRENGTHEN DOWNSTREAM OF THE TROUGH -- FROM PORTIONS OF THE SWRN
STATES TO THE GREAT LAKES REGION. THIS PATTERN WILL FAVOR LEE SFC
TROUGHING OVER PORTIONS OF THE CNTRL/SRN HIGH PLAINS...WITH A BROAD
AREA OF STRONG SSWLY TO WSWLY SFC WINDS MATERIALIZING FROM SERN AZ
ACROSS MUCH OF NM TO W TX AND WRN OK INTO SWRN/S-CNTRL KS. POCKETS
OF REDUCED RH OWING TO DIURNAL HEATING AND DOWNSLOPE-FLOW-ENCOURAGED
WARMING/DRYING MAY YIELD MARGINAL/BRIEF/SPOTTY ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS. HOWEVER...IN GENERAL...RELATIVELY COOL CONDITIONS ARE
CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO MITIGATE THE OVERALL FIRE-WEATHER RISK AND
KEEP RH VALUES FROM BECOMING SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR HIGHLIGHTS. AREAS
OF MOIST FUELS WILL ALSO MITIGATE THE FIRE-WEATHER POTENTIAL.
ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE CONUS...FIRE-WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO
REMAIN QUIESCENT FOR D2/THU.
