   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGE AXIS OVER THE WEST WILL SHIFT EWD SLIGHTLY...AS A STRONG
   PACIFIC SYSTEM APPROACHES THE W COAST WITH PROSPECTS OF HEAVY
   PRECIPITATION. OVER THE ERN U.S...UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO
   AMPLIFY OVER THE WRN ATLANTIC AS THE TAIL END OF A COLD FRONT SWEEPS
   ACROSS SRN FL WITH SOME RAIN EXPECTED AND GUSTY NLY WINDS.
   
   MEANWHILE...SLY FLOW WILL RETURN ACROSS THE PLAINS AS HIGH PRESSURE
   CENTER SHIFTS E INTO THE OHIO VALLEY AND WEAK LEE TROUGING OCCURS
   OVER ERN CO.
   
   ...SWRN KS / WRN OK / TX-OK PANHANDLES / NERN NM...
   UPPER RIDGING AND SLY WINDS WILL HELP TEMPERATURES TO WARM INTO THE
   60S FROM THE TX PANHANDLE AND WRN OK NWD INTO ERN CO AND WRN KS. RH
   LEVELS WILL BE LOW WITH VALUES RANGING FROM 15 PERCENT OVER ERN CO
   AND NM TO 20-30 PERCENT TX PANHANDLE / WRN OK / SW KS. SWLY WIND
   SPEEDS OF AT LEAST 15 MPH WILL BE LIKELY WITH SOME AREAS SEEING
   SUSTAINED 20 MPH.
   
   ...SRN CA / AZ / SRN NV...
   VERY LOW RH VALUES WILL EXIST ESPECIALLY OVER AZ WITH SINGLE DIGIT
   READINGS LIKELY AND WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE 80S LOWLANDS AND 60S
   HIGH TERRAIN. SLY FLOW WILL INCREASE TO NEAR 10 MPH ACROSS THE
   REGION AS UPPER RIDGE BREAKS DOWN. DESPITE LACK OF STRONG
   WIND...VERY STEEP LAPSE RATES AND A DRY AIR MASS WILL REMAIN IN
   PLACE WITH STRONG INSTABILITY DEVELOPING DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS.
   
   
   ...SERN STATES...
   NLY WINDS BEHIND A COLD FRONT WILL BRING IN DRIER AIR INTO THE
   REGION AFTER A VERY WET DAY SATURDAY. THE COLD FRONT WILL MOVE
   QUICKLY SWD ACROSS CENTRAL AND SRN FL BY MIDDAY SUNDAY...WITH RAIN
   LIKELY. BEHIND THE FRONT...WINDS WILL BECOME LOCALLY STRONG AND
   GUSTY WITH SPEEDS UP TO 20-25 MPH. RH VALUES WILL BE LOWEST FROM THE
   CAROLINAS SWD INTO GA AL AND WRN FL PANHANDLE WITH VALUES OF 30-35
   PERCENT. DESPITE THIS...EFFECTS OF RECENT PRECIPITATION WILL HELP TO
   MITIGATE FIRE THREAT.
