.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0140 AM CDT Tue Mar 20 2018/

An amplified upper pattern will continue over the CONUS on Day
2/Wednesday, with upper ridging over the western states and an upper
trough/low moving eastward from the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast to off
the coast of New England. Weak surface troughing should persist
across portions of the southern/central High Plains.

...Portions of the FL Peninsula...
Strong/gusty post-frontal winds will occur across much of the
Southeast through Wednesday evening. Northwesterly winds of 10-20
mph appear likely across much of FL in this time frame, and RH
values may become lowered into the 25-35% range due to efficient
boundary-layer mixing of the dry post-frontal airmass. While these
conditions would typically support an elevated/critical threat,
wetting precipitation is forecast on Day 1/Tuesday across much of
the FL peninsula. This should generally limit fuel receptiveness on
Day 2/Wednesday. Will therefore not include any areas at this time.
