   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   LARGE UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM NOW ACROSS THE CNTRL PLAINS WILL
   GRADUALLY MOVE NWD INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST TONIGHT. A SHORTWAVE
   TROUGH IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST THIS MORNING WILL WEAKEN AS IT MOVES
   INTO THE NRN HIGH PLAINS BY EARLY MONDAY. IN THE EAST...A BLOCKING
   PATTERN WILL SET UP WITH UPPER RIDGE BUILDING OVER QUEBEC...AND AN
   UPPER LOW DEEPENING EAST OF LONG ISLAND. AT LOWER LEVELS...SFC
   TROUGH WILL DEVELOP OVER THE TX PANHANDLE...WITH INCREASING WLY
   WINDS AND DRIER CONDITIONS TODAY. MODERATELY STRONG NELY FLOW ACROSS
   SRN NEW ENGLAND WILL ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO LOW HUMIDITY AND GUSTY WINDS
   TODAY ACROSS PORTIONS OF MA/RI/CT. LOW RH VALUES WILL PERSIST ACROSS
   FL...THOUGH SFC WINDS WILL BE DIMINISHING THIS AFTN.
   
   ...SRN NEW ENGLAND...
   A DRY AIRMASS IS IN PLACE ACROSS THIS AREA...WITH OBSERVED MINIMUM
   RH VALUES BELOW 20 PERCENT ON SATURDAY. RH VALUES WILL RANGE FROM
   15-25 PERCENT TODAY AS TEMPS CLIMB INTO THE 60S/LOWER 70S INLAND
   WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER TEMPS ALONG THE COAST. FORECAST SOUNDINGS
   SUGGEST STRONG MIXING WILL OCCUR...WHICH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO GUSTY
   SFC WINDS IN THE 15-20 MPH RANGE. PRECIPITATION OVER THE LAST FEW
   WEEKS HAS BEEN A FEW INCHES BELOW NORMAL...AND RECENT FIRE DANGER
   CLASS OBSERVATIONS INDICATE HIGH/VERY HIGH VALUES ESPECIALLY ACROSS
   SRN NH/VT/WRN MA. EXPECTED WIND/RH VALUES MAY BE SUPPORTIVE OF
   CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR A SHORT PERIOD THIS AFTN.
   
   ...SRN HIGH PLAINS...
   SFC WINDS WILL NOT BE OVERLY STRONG...AND THIS WILL LIMIT CRITICAL
   FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. THERE WILL BE FEWER CLOUDS TODAY...ALLOWING
   TEMPS TO REBOUND INTO THE 80S/LOWER 90S. MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL FALL
   BELOW 15 PERCENT...SO CRITICAL CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP FOR LOCATIONS
   WHICH HAVE NOT RECEIVED MUCH WETTING RAIN RECENTLY.
