   ...SYNOPSIS...
   PROGRESSIVE UPPER FLOW PATTERN WILL PERSIST OVER THE CONUS THROUGH

   ROCKIES WILL MOVE INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST...WHILE MEAN TROUGH

   THE EASTERN THIRD OF THE COUNTRY.
   
   ...FL/GA/SRN AL/SC...
   HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTING TOWARD THE ATLANTIC SEABOARD WILL REINFORCE
   THE DRY AIRMASS OVER THE SOUTHEAST STATES. CRITICAL RH VALUES WILL
   AGAIN BE AS LOW AS 20-25 PERCENT FOR SEVERAL HOURS DURATION ACROSS
   NORTHERN FL INTO GA/SC...RANGING TO AROUND 35 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON
   ACROSS THE SOUTHERN FL PENINSULA. ALTHOUGH WIND SPEEDS WILL BE
   LIGHTER ACROSS NORTHERN FL/GA TODAY...SOMEWHAT STRONGER WINDS
   /PERHAPS 15 MPH SUSTAINED/ ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE SOUTHERN FL
   PENINSULA...AS WELL AS THE SC COASTAL PLAIN.
   
   ...NORTHEAST NM/EASTERN CO/NORTHWEST OK/TX PANHANDLE/KS...
   GUSTY WINDS WILL INCREASE ACROSS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN
   PLAINS TODAY...AS SURFACE TROUGH DEVELOPS IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES.
   PLENTIFUL CLOUD COVER WILL TEND TO HINDER DEEPER MIXING...BUT S/SW
   WINDS SHOULD REACH 25-30 MPH /WITH SOME HIGHER GUSTS/ BY
   MIDDAY...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE WESTERN HALF OF KS INTO NORTHWEST OK.
   TEMPERATURES SHOULD GENERALLY RANGE FROM THE MIDDLE 50S TO LOWER
   60S. ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES AND RH VALUES WILL BE MARGINAL THIS
   AFTERNOON...THE GUSTY WINDS AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL LEAD TO AN
   ELEVATED FIRE DANGER.
