   ...SYNOPSIS...

   ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS WHERE GUSTY WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE
   IN THE WAKE OF THE DEPARTING COLD FRONT. EVEN HERE...HOWEVER...THE
   FIRE-WEATHER THREAT WILL BE TEMPERED BY COOL TEMPERATURES.

   ACROSS THE WEST...A BROAD LOW/TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY WORK
   ITS WAY SOUTH-SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST UNITED STATES.
   DOWNSTREAM FROM THIS TROUGH A LOW-AMPLITUDE RIDGE WILL SLOWLY BUILD
   EASTWARD FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST UNITED
   STATES. THIS TROUGH WILL RESULT IN WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVER AND
   PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST...ACTING TO LIMIT THE
   FIRE-WEATHER THREAT.
