   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK...REF AWIPS GRAPHIC PMWI98 KWNS
   VALID 301200-311200
     
   ....NO LARGE-SCALE SIGNIFICANT FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS EXPECTED...
     
   ...SYNOPSIS... 
   INCREASING NWLY WINDS ALOFT OVER THE NRN ROCKIES WILL COMBINE WITH
   A STRONG PRESSURE GRADIENT AT THE SURFACE TO PRODUCE VERY STRONG
   DOWNSLOPE WINDS OVER SERN WY...NERN CO...AND WRN NEBRASKA.  THE
   UPPER RIDGE OVER THE SWRN U.S. WILL STRENGTHEN AND ALLOW FOR VERY
   WARM TEMPERATURES...LOW RH...AND LIGHT WINDS.  
   
   ...SERN WY / NERN CO / WRN NEBRASKA...
   AN EXTREMELY STRONG PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL EXIST OVER WY AND CO
   TODAY AS A NWLY JET STREAM STRENGTHENS.  WLY WINDS WILL BE
   SUSTAINED AT 30-40 MPH OVER SRN AND ERN WY AND THE NEBRASKA
   PANHANDLE...WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER SPEEDS EXPECTED OVER NERN CO. 
   TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOL IN WYOMING WITH 40S F DURING THE DAY.  AS
   A RESULT...RH LEVELS WILL NOT DROP BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS HERE. 
   FURTHER E AND S...RH LEVELS WILL BE CLOSER TO CRITICAL LEVELS WITH
   VALUES OF 20-30 PERCENT OVER NERN CO AND WRN NEBRASKA...AS
   TEMPERATURES HERE RISE INTO THE 50S AND POSSIBLY LOWER 60S.  GIVEN
   EXTREME DROUGHT CONDITIONS...FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL APPROACH
   CRITICAL LEVELS.
