   A large-scale upper trough/low centered over the Great Basin will
   continue to move slowly eastward across the western CONUS on Day
   2/Saturday. An upper ridge will persist over much of the eastern
   CONUS. While enhanced mid-level winds will remain present over
   portions of the Southwest into the High Plains Saturday afternoon,
   RH values behind a surface cold front are generally expected to
   remain above critical levels. Locally elevated fire weather
   conditions may occur across parts of northern AZ and southeastern UT
   where RH values could become lowered near 20% in conjunction with
   strong/gusty surface winds. However, only marginally receptive to
   unreceptive fuels across this region and cooler temperatures behind
   the surface cold front preclude the introduction of an elevated area
   at this time.
