   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR SE ORE/NE CA/SRN ID/SCNTRL MT/NRN
   NV/NW UT...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WRN UPPER TROUGH WILL DEEPEN SIGNIFICANTLY THROUGH THE FORECAST
   PERIOD WITH INCREASING MID LEVEL FLOW IN EXCESS OF 80 KT.
   SIGNIFICANT LARGE SCALE HEIGHT FALLS WILL SUPPORT LEE CYCLOGENESIS
   ACROSS ERN MT/WY DURING THE DAY. MEANWHILE A POTENT COLD FRONT NOW
   LOCATED ACROSS ERN WA/NW ORE WILL MOVE SEWD ACROSS NRN CA/SE ORE/SW
   ID BY LATE AFTN. GUSTY W/SW WINDS WILL DEVELOP AHEAD OF THE
   BOUNDARY...WHICH COMBINED WITH LOW RH VALUES AND ABOVE NORMAL
   TEMPS...WILL CONTRIBUTE TO CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF THE NRN ROCKIES/NRN GREAT BASIN. FARTHER EAST INVOF THE
   LEE TROUGH...HUMIDITY VALUES WILL ALSO BE LOW BUT SUSTAINED SFC
   WINDS WILL REMAIN AOB 20 MPH.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA 1 - SE ORE/NE CA/SRN ID/SCNTRL MT/NRN
   NV/NW UT...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: SUSTAINED SFC WINDS 15-25 MPH WITH HIGHER
   GUSTS/MINIMUM RH VALUES BELOW 15 PERCENT/DRY FUELS
   
   LATEST MODELS SUGGEST CLOUDS/PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH LARGE
   SCALE ASCENT/APPROACHING FRONT WILL LIMIT POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL
   FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS OVER MUCH OF ORE...EXCEPT FOR THE FAR
   SOUTHEAST. MODERATE PRECIPITATION OCCURRING EARLY THIS MORNING
   ACROSS PORTIONS OF NW ORE/SE WA WILL MOVE ACROSS MUCH OF THE STATE 
   EARLY TODAY. HOWEVER...SOUTH OF THE BOUNDARY SFC WINDS WILL INCREASE
   INTO THE 15-25 MPH RANGE WITH HIGHER GUSTS ABOVE 35 MPH POSSIBLE.
   WINDS WILL BE EVEN STRONGER ACROSS SCNTRL/SE MT. SFC DEWPOINTS IN
   THE TEENS WITH HIGH TEMPS IN THE UPPER 70S/LOWER 80S WILL RESULT IN
   MINIMUM RH VALUES AROUND 10-15 PERCENT. FUELS HAVE BEEN DRYING THE
   PAST FEW DAYS WITH LATEST NFDRS FIRE DANGER CLASS OBS IN THE
   HIGH/VERY HIGH RANGE.
