EARLY-MORNING MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY INDICATES A MID-LEVEL
SHORTWAVE TROUGH DIGGING OVER THE CNTRL GREAT BASIN. THIS TROUGH
WILL CONTINUE TO AMPLIFY OVER THE WEST...AS AN UPSTREAM WIND-SPEED
MAXIMUM ADVANCES SSEWD. IN CONCERT WITH 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.
ENHANCED TROPOSPHERIC FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH THIS BAND WILL FACILITATE
AREAS OF STRONG SSWLY TO WSWLY SFC WINDS 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/SHORT-DURATION/LOCALIZED ELEVATED
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. HOWEVER...IN GENERAL...RELATIVELY COOL
CONDITIONS ARE CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO MITIGATE THE OVERALL
FIRE-WEATHER RISK...WHILE TEMPERING RH REDUCTIONS. AREAS OF MOIST
FUELS WILL ALSO MITIGATE THE FIRE-WEATHER POTENTIAL. ELSEWHERE
ACROSS THE CONUS...QUIESCENT FIRE-WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
ANTICIPATED.
