...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

...INTERIOR SOUTHERN CA...
LOCALLY ELEVATED CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS INTERIOR
MOUNTAINS...FOOTHILLS...AND VALLEYS OF SOUTHERN CA LATER TODAY...AS
DRY/HOT CONDITIONS REMAIN TEMPORARILY PRIOR TO INCREASING MOISTURE
WITH WESTERLY ONSHORE FLOW. POCKETS OF SUSTAINED WINDS AROUND 15-20
MPH WILL OVERSPREAD VERY DRY FUELS THIS AFTERNOON...MAINTAINING SOME
ELEVATED FIRE-WEATHER POTENTIAL. HOWEVER...THE THREAT SHOULD BE TOO
SMALL IN SPACE AND TIME TO NECESSITATE AN ELEVATED AREA.

...SYNOPSIS...
A MID-/UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS INTO
THE GREAT LAKES REGION THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD HELPING TO DRIVE
A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES. ELSEWHERE...STRONG
SUB-TROPICAL RIDGING WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE SOUTHERN UNITED
STATES...ALBEIT SLIGHTLY WEAKER ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST.

AS THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED TROUGH MOVES EAST...MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL
WEAKEN ACROSS THE WEST ALLOWING FOR LOW-LEVEL WINDS TO RELAX.
THEREFORE...DESPITE CONTINUED HOT/DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS THE
SOUTHWEST QUADRANT OF THE UNITED STATES...OVERALL LARGE-SCALE FIRE
WEATHER CONCERNS LOOK TO BE LOW.
