   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   IN THE MID LEVELS...MEAN CYCLONIC FLOW WILL COVER THE WRN CONUS
   AMIDST AN AMPLIFYING TROUGH OVER THE NORTHWEST AND A CYCLONE SLOWLY
   PROGRESSING EWD ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST. RIDGING WILL EXTEND NWD FROM
   AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER THE SERN CONUS ACROSS PARTS OF THE ERN
   PLAINS AND MS VALLEY...WHILE A TROUGH ADVANCES EWD ACROSS PORTIONS
   OF THE NORTHEAST. THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN
   OF THE WRN CONUS...THOUGH PW VALUES AND LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ARE
   EXPECTED TO BE SUFFICIENTLY ROBUST TO LIMIT THE RISK FOR PURELY DRY
   THUNDERSTORMS. FURTHERMORE...STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO
   OVERLAP WITH LOW SFC RH ACROSS THE CONUS. FOR THESE
   REASONS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE NOT BEEN INCLUDED.
