   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0307 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   EARLY-MORNING MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY INDICATES MULTIPLE SHORTWAVE
   IMPULSES ADVANCING THROUGH THE FLOW AROUND A TROUGH THAT WILL
   CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE GREAT PLAINS. UPSTREAM FROM THE
   TROUGH...SUBSIDENCE WILL SUPPORT SFC RIDGING FROM PORTIONS OF THE
   GREAT BASIN TO THE HIGH PLAINS IN THE WAKE OF A SWD/SEWD-ADVANCING
   COLD FRONT. ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT...MODERATE TO LOCALLY STRONG
   WINDS ARE EXPECTED. HOWEVER...IN BOTH CASES...RH VALUES ARE NOT
   FORECAST TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS
   WITHOUT WARMER/DRIER CONDITIONS. ALSO...SOME INCREASE IN NELY/ELY
   SFC WINDS IS ANTICIPATED ON THE SWRN PERIPHERY OF GREAT BASIN SFC
   RIDGING. HOWEVER...WITHOUT A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...RH REDUCTIONS
   WILL BE LIMITED. FURTHERMORE...THE PRESENCE OF MOIST FUELS OWING TO
   RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL MITIGATE THE FIRE-WEATHER RISK. AS
   SUCH...NO FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED.
