   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   CORE OF UPPER TROUGH WILL LIFT NORTHEASTWARD INTO
   SASKATCHEWAN/MANITOBA TODAY...WITH RISING HEIGHTS AND WESTERLY
   MID/UPPER LEVEL FLOW DEVELOPING ACROSS THE WESTERN STATES. THIS WILL
   RESULT IN LIGHTER WINDS ACROSS THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN ROCKIES TODAY.
   UPPER RIDGE/SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN DOMINANT OVER THE
   EASTERN STATES.
   
   ...FOUR CORNERS/SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS...
   WITH UPPER TROUGH MOVING INTO CANADA...IN COMPARISON TO THIS PAST
   WEEKEND...WEAKER WIND FIELDS WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
   ROCKIES/FOUR CORNERS AREA INTO THE ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS TODAY.
   THIS SUGGESTS A DIMINISHED FIRE DANGER OVER MUCH OF THE
   REGION...ALTHOUGH NEAR-CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS
   EASTERN/SOUTHERN NM INTO SOUTHWEST TX GIVEN THE MODEST WIND SPEEDS
   OF 15-20 MPH /WITH HIGHER GUSTS/ AND PERSISTENCE OF WARM/DRY
   CONDITIONS.
   
   ...FL/GA...
   IN PRESENCE OF UPPER RIDGE/SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE...SLIGHTLY
   DRIER AIR MAY DEVELOP INTO NORTHERN FL/SOUTHERN GA TODAY.
   HOWEVER...CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED AS RH VALUES
   SHOULD ONLY APPROACH CRITICAL THRESHOLDS FOR A SHORT DURATION THIS
   AFTERNOON. OTHERWISE...AFTERNOON LIGHTNING STRIKES COULD YIELD NEW
   FIRE STARTS ACROSS THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN FL PENINSULA AND FL
   PANHANDLE.
