   MIGRATE EAST-NORTHEAST FROM THE NORTHERN ROCKIES TO THE UPPER
   MIDWEST...WHILE A SECOND SHORTWAVE DROPS SOUTHWARD ALONG THE BRITISH
   COLUMBIA COAST AND INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. MEANWHILE...THE UPPER
   LOW NEAR THE TEXAS BIG BEND AREA WILL LIFT NORTHEAST AND MERGE WITH
   CYCLONIC NORTHERN-STREAM FLOW OVER THE MIDDLE-TO-LOWER
   MISSISSIPPI/LOWER OHIO VALLEY REGIONS. WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION IS
   EXPECTED ACROSS PARTS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST...THE SOUTHEASTERN
   U.S. AND THE DAKOTAS/UPPER MIDWEST AHEAD OF EACH OF THESE SHORTWAVE
   FEATURES...NEGATING ANY FIRE CONCERNS. ELSEWHERE...FIRE WEATHER
   CONCERNS ARE NOT EXPECTED DUE TO COOL TEMPERATURES AND LACK OF
   JUXTAPOSITION BETWEEN STRONGER SURFACE WINDS AND LOW RH VALUES.
