   DEVELOP BY EARLY AFTERNOON FROM THE CNTRL HIGH PLAINS INTO THE
   OZARKS. IN SPITE OF THE GUSTY WINDS AND MODERATELY LOW RH VALUES OF

   TO LIMIT THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
   
   ...SE STATES...
   IN ADVANCE OF APPROACHING COLD FRONT...TIGHTENING PRESSURE GRADIENT
   AND PROXIMITY OF LOW LEVEL JET WILL CONTRIBUTE TO SWLY WINDS OF
   10-20 MPH /WITH SOME HIGHER GUSTS/ BY MIDDAY. HOWEVER WITH
   INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE...MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL LIKELY REMAIN
   ABOVE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS THIS AFTERNOON. RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL
   ALSO BE A LIMITING FACTOR FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
