...SYNOPSIS...
A BROAD UPPER TROUGH OVER THE WRN/CNTRL CONUS EVIDENT ON WATER VAPOR
SATELLITE IMAGERY THIS MORNING SHOULD PROGRESS SLOWLY EWD THROUGH
TUE MORNING AS EMBEDDED SHORTWAVE TROUGHS ROTATE AROUND THE LARGE
SCALE UPPER TROUGH. UPPER RIDGING WILL PERSIST OVER THE ERN STATES
AND WRN ATLANTIC. THE PRIMARY SYNOPTIC SFC LOW OVER MN/IA SHOULD
MOVE NEWD TO THE WRN GREAT LAKES REGION THROUGH THE DAY IN
ASSOCIATION WITH ONE SUCH SHORTWAVE TROUGH. A QUASI-STATIONARY COLD
FRONT WILL EXTEND SWWD FROM THE LOW ACROSS THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS.

FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ACROSS THE CONUS APPEAR MINIMAL TODAY...AS
LATEST SHORT-TERM GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SUGGEST THAT LOWERED RH
VALUES BEHIND THE FRONT/DRYLINE OVER PORTIONS OF THE SRN HIGH PLAINS
SHOULD REMAIN DISPLACED FROM STRONGER WINDS FURTHER N.
