   VALID 201200Z - 211200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A STRONG UPPER RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER THE WRN STATES AS
   UPPER TROUGH MOVES EWD ACROSS THE UPPER MS VALLEY AND GREAT LAKES.
   TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMER AS A RESULT WITH CRITICALLY LOW RH
   VALUES DEVELOPING WITHIN SURFACE THERMAL TROUGH OVER WA / OREGON /
   ID / WRN MT. LATE IN THE PERIOD...RIDGE AXIS WILL SHIFT EWD A BIT
   AND ALLOW SOME STRONG UPPER LEVEL WINDS TO POSSIBLY CAUSE STRONGER
   GUSTS IN THE HIGH TERRAIN OF WA/OR. ELSEWHERE...A LARGE SWATH OF
   PRECIPITATION WILL FORM ALONG A COLD FRONT FROM THE OHIO VALLEY SWWD
   INTO MO AND WWD ACROSS KS/OK AND INTO CO/NM.
   
   ...ERN WA / OR / NRN CA / ID...
   INCREASED FIRE ACTIVITY CAN BE EXPECTED SAT COMPARED TO PREVIOUS
   COUPLE DAYS...DUE TO HOTTER TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S AND RH VALUES
   BETWEEN 10-20 PERCENT. THE HOTTER CONDITIONS WILL IN TURN CAUSE
   DEEPER MIXING LAYERS AND INCREASE LOWER ATMOSPHERIC
   TURBULENCE...DESPITE RELATIVELY LIGHT WINDS ON THE LARGE SCALE.
