   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A STRONG 500MB RIDGE IN PLACE FROM AZ NNWWD ACROSS THE WRN GREAT
   BASIN AND NWRN CONUS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO TEMPERATURES 10-15F ABOVE
   NORMAL ACROSS LOWER ELEVATIONS OF THE SWRN CONUS AND SRN HIGH
   PLAINS. MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES SHOULD ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO REACH THE
   70S TO LOWER 80S ACROSS INTERIOR BASINS OF CA AND AZ...WHERE HIGHS
   WILL APPROACH RECORD LEVELS IN SOME AREAS. RH MINIMUMS WILL RANGE
   FROM 15-25 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS LOW ELEVATIONS OF INTERIOR
   SRN CA EWD ACROSS CENTRAL/SRN AZ...CENTRAL/SRN NM...AND SWRN TX. 
   
   DESPITE WARM TEMPERATURES AND LOW HUMIDITY TODAY...THE PRESENCE OF
   WEAK WINDS AT THE SURFACE AND ALOFT ACROSS THIS REGION SHOULD LIMIT
   ANY SIGNIFICANT FIRE WEATHER PROBLEMS. 
   
   ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE CONUS...PRESENCE OF COOL AND/OR MOIST BOUNDARY
   LAYER CONDITIONS WILL PRECLUDE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.

   OROGRAPHICALLY DRIVEN WINDS...AT OR BELOW 15 MPH...SHOULD MITIGATE
   FIRE WEATHER THREAT AS WEAK WIND FIELDS CONTINUE ALOFT. 
   
   ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE CONUS...LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER PROBLEMS ARE
   NOT ANTICIPATED DURING THE PERIOD.
