   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE CNTRL CONUS ON
   D2/MON. THIS WILL OCCUR AS A WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM SHIFTS SEWD ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF THE ERN GREAT BASIN AND ROCKIES...AND A RIDGE BUILDS
   INTO PORTIONS OF THE NWRN CONUS. MEANWHILE...STRENGTHENING
   SUBSIDENCE UPSTREAM FROM THE TROUGH WILL ENCOURAGE SFC RIDGING FROM
   PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE HIGH PLAINS IN THE WAKE OF A COLD
   FRONT THAT WILL ADVANCE SWD/SEWD. DESPITE AREAS OF STRONG WINDS
   OCCURRING ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FRONT...RH VALUES ARE NOT FORECAST
   TO BECOME SUFFICIENTLY LOW FOR FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS WITHOUT
   WARMER/DRIER CONDITIONS. ALSO...THE AFOREMENTIONED GREAT BASIN SFC
   RIDGING WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY ENHANCED NELY TO ELY FLOW OVER THE
   SRN CA COASTAL RANGES/ADJACENT FOOTHILLS. HOWEVER...WITHOUT A
   WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...RH REDUCTIONS WILL BE HINDERED. ALSO...FUEL
   MOISTENING OWING TO RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL MITIGATE THE
   FIRE-WEATHER RISK. AS SUCH...NO FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN
   INCLUDED.
