A WARMING TREND WILL OCCUR THROUGH SATURDAY BEFORE COOLING
ONCE AGAIN BEHIND THE PASSAGE OF A COLD FRONT ON SUNDAY. HIGH
TEMPERATURES FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AFTERNOON SHOULD TOP THE 60
DEGREE MARK FOR MOST LOCATIONS...THIS IS DUE IN PART TO A
WESTERLY DOWNSLOPING COMPONENT OF THE LOWER TROPOSPHERIC WIND.

ACROSS SOUTHWEST AND WESTERN NEBRASKA /ZONES 204 AND 210/. WIND
SPEEDS HOWEVER SHOULD REMAIN BELOW 20 MPH. WHILE THE FIRE DANGER
WILL BE ELEVATED...FIRE HEADLINES ARE NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.
