...SYNOPSIS...
UPPER RIDGING WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE SOUTHERN GREAT PLAINS...WHILE
GRADUALLY STRENGTHENING FROM THE FOUR CORNERS INTO THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST DURING THE D2/THU FORECAST PERIOD.  THIS WILL RESULT IN A
RELAXED PRESSURE GRADIENT AND VERY LIGHT FLOW ACROSS MOST DRY
LOCATIONS OF THE WESTERN/NORTHWESTERN CONUS.  A BELT OF WESTERLIES
WILL BE SHUNTED NORTHWARD INTO SOUTHWESTERN CANADA...AND FROM THERE
SOUTHEASTWARD INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION AND NORTHEASTERN CONUS.  A
DISTURBANCE WILL CONTINUE TO MEANDER ACROSS THE GULF STREAM
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.

THE OVERALL LAX WIND FIELDS ACROSS MANY DRY AREAS OF THE WESTERN
U.S. WILL LIMIT LARGER-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.  NO THREAT AREAS
WILL BE DELINEATED FOR THIS FORECAST.
