   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A POSITIVELY TILTED LONGWAVE TROUGH WITH MULTIPLE EMBEDDED SHORTWAVE
   CIRCULATIONS LOCATED FROM THE NRN PLAINS SWWD TO SRN CA WILL SHIFT
   SLOWLY EWD THROUGH THE PERIOD. AT THE SFC...AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
   CENTERED OVER ERN CO/WY EARLY THIS MORNING WILL MOVE NEWD TO THE
   GREAT LAKES REGION BY TONIGHT. A TRAILING COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH
   THIS SFC LOW WILL PROGRESS SWD ACROSS THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS...AND IT
   SHOULD BE IN THE VICINITY OF NERN NM...THE TX PANHANDLE...AND MAIN
   BODY OF OK EARLY THIS EVENING. A REMNANT AREA OF WEAK LOW
   PRESSURE/TROUGHING WILL LIKELY REMAIN OVER ERN NM THIS AFTERNOON.
   GUSTY DOWNSLOPE SLY/SWLY WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS WEAK LOW AND
   ENHANCED LOW/MIDLEVEL SWLY FLOW MAY PROMOTE SOME LOCALLY REDUCED RH
   VALUES ACROSS PORTIONS OF ERN NM AND W TX. HOWEVER...CONSIDERABLE
   CLOUDINESS AND FORECAST PRECIPITATION SHOULD GREATLY LIMIT BOTH A
   SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN DAYTIME TEMPERATURES AND THE
   SPATIAL/TEMPORAL EXTENT OF LOWERED RH. WITH UNRECEPTIVE/MOIST FUELS
   ALSO IN PLACE ACROSS THIS REGION...NO FIRE WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE
   BEEN INTRODUCED ACROSS THE SRN HIGH PLAINS.
