   VALID 201200Z - 211200Z
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE MIDWEST AND THE GREAT PLAINS
   THROUGH TO THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND OHIO VALLEYS. SOME MIXED
   PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR WITH THE FRONTAL PASSAGE...MAINLY IN THE
   EAST. BEHIND THE FRONT...A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL BUILD
   INTO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND DOMINATE THE WESTERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE
   UNITED STATES. COOLER WEATHER WILL FINALLY REACH THE GREAT
   PLAINS...ALONG WITH HIGHER RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA 1 - NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: STRONG AND GUSTY POST FRONTAL WINDS
   
   COOLER TEMPERATURES AND HIGHER RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL FINALLY
   DIMINISH THE FIRE WEATHER THREAT OVER MOST OF THE GREAT PLAINS.
   HOWEVER...AN AREA OF STRONG AND GUSTY N/NW WINDS WILL DEVELOP BEHIND
   A COLD FRONT THAT WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN TEXAS DURING THE
   AFTERNOON. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL BRIEFLY DROP INTO THE
   MID-TEENS TO MID-TWENTIES IN THE CRITICAL RISK AREA...AND VERY DRY
   SURFACE FUELS WILL CONTINUE TO CONTRIBUTE TO A FIRE WEATHER
   RISK...ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS WHEN WIND SPEEDS ARE
   EXPECTED TO BE STRONGEST. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES RECOVER QUICKLY
   AFTER SUNSET...AND WIND SPEEDS DIMINISH AS WELL...SO THE MAIN FIRE
   WEATHER THREAT WILL BE DURING THE AFTERNOON.

   HELP TO MITIGATE FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS IN THIS AREA. ELSEWHERE...A
   LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP OVER SOUTHEAST NORTH DAKOTA AND
   MOVE INTO WISCONSIN...WHILE AN ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVES SOUTHWARD
   FROM THROUGH NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA...AND MONTANA...WITH A RISK OF
