...SYNOPSIS...
EARLY-MORNING MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY DEPICTS A CONUS-FULL-LATITUDE
TROUGH APPROACHING/CROSSING THE MS VALLEY. THIS TROUGH IS FORECAST
TO CONTINUE ADVANCING EWD AND EXTEND FROM THE ERN GREAT LAKES REGION
TO THE CNTRL/ERN GULF COAST LATE IN THE PERIOD. AS RELATED SFC LOW
PRESSURE QUICKLY DEVELOPS NNEWD ACROSS THE LOWER GREAT LAKES AND
OHIO VALLEY REGION...SFC WINDS WILL WEAKEN OVER THE GREAT PLAINS
WHERE COOL TEMPERATURES WILL MITIGATE THE FIRE-WEATHER RISK. A SFC
RIDGE OVER PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN WILL WEAKEN...AS A MID-LEVEL
SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVES ASHORE FROM THE E PACIFIC. AS THIS
OCCURS...WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE ACROSS THE SRN CA COASTAL
RANGES AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS...WHERE MOIST FUELS PERSIST OWING TO
RECENT PRECIPITATION.
