   Valid 271200Z - 281200Z

   An upper trough is expected to shift eastward into the central U.S.
   on Saturday, as a ridge continues to build into the West. A surface
   low over the southern High Plains at the start of the period is
   expected to move northeastward into portions of the Midwest, as a
   cold front sweeps through portions of the central/southern Plains. A
   weak surface ridge will persist over Florida, resulting in hot and
   dry conditions over portions of the interior peninsula, though winds
   are expected to remain light. 

   ...Portions of the Southwest into the Southern High Plains...
   Surface winds are generally expected to weaken across the Southwest
   into the southern High Plains compared to previous days, but
   sustained winds of 15-20 mph, with locally higher gusts, are
   expected during the afternoon. These winds, in conjunction with
   minimum RH values below 15%, will result in elevated to locally
   critical fire weather conditions from southeast Arizona eastward
   into portions of the southern High Plains.
