.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0120 AM CST Wed Feb 21 2018/

An upper trough will persist across the western U.S. while expansive
southwesterly flow encompasses much of the CONUS east of the
Rockies. A surface cold front will track eastward off the TX coast
and through New England, with the mid-South portion of the front
stalling from KY into the lower MS Valley region. Strong surface
high pressure will build over the Plains and Great Lakes behind the
front and generally moist conditions are expected from the southern
Plains into the southeastern U.S. A lack of strong surface winds
aligning with low RH conditions will preclude fire weather concerns
