   ..BOTHWELL.. 09/01/2014

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0236 AM CDT MON SEP 01 2014/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LEAD SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL TRACK FROM THE UPPER MS VALLEY NEWD
   THROUGH THE UPPER GREAT LAKES AND INTO ERN ONTARIO. AN ADDITIONAL
   SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE THROUGH THE CNTRL ROCKIES AND CNTRL
   PLAINS AND INTO THE MID MS VALLEY. SUBTROPICAL RIDGE INITIALLY
   CENTERED OFF THE CAROLINA COAST WILL DAMPEN AND SHIFT SWWD AS THESE
   TWO SHORTWAVES -- AND THE LARGER PARENT TROUGH THEY ARE EMBEDDED
   WITHIN -- PROGRESS EWD. 

   COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE LEAD SHORTWAVE WILL EXTEND FROM THE
   MN ARROWHEAD SWWD INTO THE TX PANHANDLE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE
   PERIOD. NRN PORTION OF THIS FRONT WILL PUSH EWD/SEWD ACROSS THE
   UPPER GREAT LAKES AND MID MS VALLEY WHILE THE SRN PORTION /FROM ERN
   KS SWWD INTO THE TX PANHANDLE/ REMAINS MOSTLY STATIONARY. 

   SOME GUSTY WINDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS SRN WY BUT RH VALUES WILL
   LIKELY REMAIN ABOVE 20 PERCENT. A GENERALLY RELAXED SURFACE PRESSURE
   GRADIENT AND THE ABSENCE OF ANY ENHANCED FLOW ALOFT OVER THE WRN
   GREAT BASIN/CALIFORNIA -- WHERE FUELS ARE DRY -- WILL KEEP ANY FIRE
   WEATHER THREAT LOW. AS SUCH...NO ELEVATED OR CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE
   ANTICIPATED.
