   0345 AM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014

   VALID 241200Z - 251200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE WRN CONUS WILL AMPLIFY TODAY AS IT
   SHIFTS EWD TOWARD THE ROCKIES WHILE A DOWNSTREAM TROUGH WILL
   APPROACH THE EAST COAST.  AT THE SURFACE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL
   DOMINATE CONDITIONS OVER MOST OF THE CONUS WHILE LOW-PRESSURE
   SYSTEMS MOVE EWD ACROSS CENTRAL CANADA AND TOWARD THE WEST COAST.  

   A RELATIVELY DRY AIRMASS WILL BE IN PLACE TODAY OVER MUCH OF THE
   SOUTHWEST...CENTRAL GREAT BASIN...AND CENTRAL ROCKIES. 
   HOWEVER...THE LACK OF A STRONG SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT ACROSS THE
   REGION WILL LIMIT SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS AND THE OVERALL FIRE-WEATHER
   POTENTIAL.  NEVERTHELESS...LOCALLY ELEVATED CONDITIONS WILL BE
   POSSIBLE ACROSS WCNTRL/CNTRL NV WHERE RH VALUES MAY FALL BELOW 15
   PERCENT WITH WIND GUSTS EXCEEDING 20 MPH...ESPECIALLY IN FAVORED
   DOWNSLOPE LOCATIONS.

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL WEAKEN AS IT MOVES EWD ACROSS THE CENTRAL
   CONUS ON SATURDAY WHILE A TROUGH MOVES ONTO THE WEST COAST.  AT THE
   SURFACE...A LOW-PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
   AND DEVELOP EWD TOWARD THE NRN ROCKIES WHILE A SOUTHWARD-EXTENDING
   COLD FRONT ADVANCES EWD ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN.  WINDY CONDITIONS
   /SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS AOA 20 MPH/ WILL PRECEDE AND FOLLOW FRONTAL
   PASSAGE ACROSS MOST OF THE CENTRAL GREAT BASIN...HOWEVER...THE
   LATEST MODEL SOLUTIONS ARE TOO MARGINAL/MOIST ACROSS THIS REGION TO
   WARRANT HIGHLIGHTING FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS AT THIS TIME.
