   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGING WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE SOUTHERN GREAT PLAINS...WHILE
   GRADUALLY STRENGTHENING FROM THE FOUR CORNERS INTO THE PACIFIC
   NORTHWEST DURING THE D2/THU FORECAST PERIOD.  THIS WILL RESULT IN A
   RELAXED PRESSURE GRADIENT AND VERY LIGHT FLOW ACROSS MOST DRY
   LOCATIONS OF THE WESTERN/NORTHWESTERN CONUS.  A BELT OF WESTERLIES
   WILL BE SHUNTED NORTHWARD INTO SOUTHWESTERN CANADA...AND FROM THERE
   SOUTHEASTWARD INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION AND NORTHEASTERN CONUS.  A
   DISTURBANCE WILL CONTINUE TO MEANDER ACROSS THE GULF STREAM
   THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.

   THE OVERALL LAX WIND FIELDS ACROSS MANY DRY AREAS OF THE WESTERN
   U.S. WILL LIMIT LARGER-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.  NO THREAT AREAS
   WILL BE DELINEATED FOR THIS FORECAST.
