.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0206 AM CST MON MAR 02 2015/

...SYNOPSIS...
A SHORTWAVE TROUGH EVIDENT OVER SWRN CA ON WATER-VAPOR SATELLITE
IMAGERY EARLY THIS MORNING SHOULD MOVE NEWD TO THE VICINITY OF THE
CNTRL ROCKIES BY LATE TONIGHT. AT THE SFC...HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED
OVER THE CNTRL PLAINS AND MID MS RIVER VALLEY EARLY IN THE DAY WILL
SHIFT EWD TO THE OHIO VALLEY. THE PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THIS
HIGH AND A DEVELOPING SFC LOW ACROSS THE FOUR CORNERS AREA WILL
PROMOTE GUSTY SLY/SWLY WINDS ACROSS A SMALL PORTION OF SRN NM AND
FAR W TEXAS THIS AFTERNOON. HOWEVER...FORECAST PRECIPITATION ACROSS
THIS REGION SHOULD GREATLY LIMIT THE SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL EXTENT OF
LOWERED RH VALUES. IN ADDITION...FUELS WILL CONTINUE TO BE GENERALLY
UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS SRN NM AND FAR W TX...AND THEREFORE NO ELEVATED
AREA HAS BEEN INCLUDED. ELSEWHERE...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL
REMAIN MINIMAL FOR THE REST OF THE CONUS AS A COMBINATION OF STRONG
WINDS AND LOWERED RH VALUES IS NOT EXPECTED.
