.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0246 AM CST FRI FEB 12 2016/

...SYNOPSIS...
BROADLY CYCLONIC MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL COVER MUCH OF THE N-CNTRL AND
ERN CONUS...WITH REINFORCING COLD SFC CONDITIONS RELATED TO
SPRAWLING HIGH PRESSURE FROM THE NRN GREAT PLAINS TO THE GREAT LAKES
REGION. WHILE AREAS OF RELATIVELY DRY CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT
PORTIONS OF THE SERN STATES...WEAK LOW-LEVEL FLOW AND RH VALUES
REMAINING ABOVE REGIONAL THRESHOLDS FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS
SUGGEST THAT THE FIRE-WEATHER RISK SHOULD REMAIN MINIMAL. FARTHER
W...A HIGH-AMPLITUDE MID-LEVEL RIDGE WILL DEAMPLIFY AS A SHORTWAVE
IMPULSE MOVES ONSHORE ALONG THE PACIFIC NW COAST. DRY CONDITIONS
WILL AFFECT PORTIONS OF THE SWRN CONUS...BUT ARE NOT EXPECTED TO
COINCIDE WITH AREAS OF ENHANCED WINDS.
