   ...SYNOPSIS...
   CYCLONIC FLOW ALOFT ALONG THE WEST COAST WILL AMPLIFY AS TWO
   SHORTWAVE TROUGHS BEGIN TO PHASE OVER CA. RIDGING WILL REMAIN
   ESTABLISHED OVER THE SRN/CNTRL PLAINS...WHILE A CLOSED LOW WILL
   SLOWLY DRIFT SE OVER THE SRN APPALACHIANS. AT THE SFC...LEE
   TROUGHING WILL EXTEND FROM THE SRN/CNTRL HIGH PLAINS SWD...WITH A
   WARM FRONT STRETCHING NEWD FROM A LOW NEAR THE KS/CO BORDER. BROAD

   0.25 IN OR LESS/ WILL STILL BE SITUATED OVER THE SW. IN TURN...MIN
   RH VALUES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE AROUND 10 PERCENT OR LESS DURING THE
   DAY. ENHANCED SWLY FLOW ALOFT ALONG THE FLANK OF A PASSING IMPULSE
   WILL WORK IN CONCERT WITH DEEP DIURNAL MIXING TO YIELD SUSTAINED
   WINDS AROUND 15-25 MPH ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION DURING THE
   AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. MOREOVER...THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS OF
   DRY/BREEZY CONDITIONS SHOULD MANIFEST IN A MORE EXPANSIVE AREA OF
   RECEPTIVE FUELS RELATIVE TO THE PRIOR PERIOD. AS SUCH...THE ELEVATED
   DELINEATION HAS BEEN MAINTAINED...WITH NO SIGNIFICANT MODIFICATION
