.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0146 AM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018/

Large-scale upper troughing with several embedded shortwave
perturbations will remain over the central and eastern CONUS on Day
2/Thursday. Upper ridging will persist over the western states as an
upper low approaches the coast of northern CA and OR by late
Thursday night. At the surface, a cold front will develop southward
across the southern/central Plains through the day.

A small spatial overlap of strong/gusty post-frontal northeasterly
winds and marginally lowered RH values may occur across parts of
east-central NM Thursday afternoon. However, RH values are not
currently expected to fall below 20% due to cooler temperatures
behind the front, precluding an elevated delineation. Warm/dry
surface conditions will exist farther west across portions of the
Southwest and Great Basin, but generally light winds should limit
substantial fire-weather concerns.
