   0229 AM CDT TUE OCT 21 2014

   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL REMAIN LOW TODAY. A TROUGH OVER THE
   WESTERN U.S. WILL TRACK EWD TOWARD THE ROCKIES WHILE AN UPPER LOW
   CLOSES OFF OVER THE ERN U.S. SFC LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE
   ERN UPPER TROUGH/LOW WILL MOVE ACROSS AND EVENTUALLY OFFSHORE THE
   MID-ATLANTIC WHILE ANOTHER SFC LOW MOVES NE TOWARD NEW ENGLAND. AS A
   RESULT...WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FROM THE
   UPPER OH VALLEY N AND E TOWARD THE ATLANTIC COAST. MIDLEVEL MOISTURE
   WILL CONTINUE TO STREAM N FROM THE FOUR CORNERS/SRN ROCKIES TOWARD
   THE NRN ROCKIES AHEAD OF THE EWD PROGRESSING SHORTWAVE TROUGH. THIS
   WILL LEAD TO WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE SRN
   HIGH PLAINS N TO THE NRN ROCKIES AHEAD OF THE UPPER TROUGH AND EWD
   ADVANCING PACIFIC COLD FRONT. ANY STRONGER WINDS ACROSS THE PLAINS
   ASSOCIATED WITH A TIGHTENING SFC PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THE
   ROCKIES LEE TROUGH AND SFC HIGH BUILDING OVER THE GREAT LAKES WILL
   NOT BE WELL ALIGNED WITH LOW RH CONDITIONS...LIMITING FIRE WEATHER
   CONCERNS.
