   VALID 051200Z - 061200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   EARLY MORNING WATER VAPOR LOOPS SHOW POTENT SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING
   ACROSS NCNTRL MT. IN THE EAST...LARGE UPPER TROUGH CONTINUES TO
   AFFECT MUCH OF THE ERN CONUS. MAIN FIRE CONCERNS TODAY ARE FOCUSED
   ACROSS NCNTRL FL...WHERE A RELATIVELY DRY AIRMASS WILL BE REINFORCED
   TODAY BY FRONTAL SURGE. ISOLD DRY TSTMS WILL POSE A THREAT FOR DRY
   LIGHTNING ACROSS MAINLY SE AZ AND PORTIONS OF NM. OTHERWISE...SFC
   WINDS WILL INCREASE OVER THE PLAINS INVOF DEEPENING LEE TROUGH IN
   THE PLAINS.
   
   ...NRN FL/SRN GA...
   ANOTHER SURGE OF DRIER AIR WILL AFFECT THE AREA AS COLD FRONT NOW
   ACROSS CNTRL GA MOVES SOUTH TODAY. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST SFC
   DEWPOINTS MAY FALL INTO THE MID/UPPER 50S WITH MINIMUM RH VALUES AS
   LOW AS 25-30 PERCENT. BOUNDARY LAYER WILL BECOME WELL MIXED TO
   AROUND 6000-7000 FEET...AND HIGH TEMPS WILL BE IN THE UPPER
   80S/LOWER 90S. 
   
   ...SE AZ INTO NM...
   ISOLD HIGH BASED TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE AGAIN TODAY. THERE HAS BEEN A
   STEADY DECREASE IN STORMS FROM DAY TO DAY ASSOCIATED WITH MID LEVEL
   WARMING AND SUBSIDENCE WITH THE UPPER RIDGE. A SLIGHTER BETTER
   CHANCE FOR STORMS WILL EXIST FOR TUE. ANY STORMS WILL CONTAIN LITTLE
   OR NO WETTING RAIN...SO DRY LIGHTNING WILL BE A FIRE WEATHER CONCERN
   TODAY.

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGE ACROSS THE WEST WILL AMPLIFY ON TUESDAY IN ADVANCE OF

   UPSLOPE FLOW IN THE POST FRONTAL ENVIRONMENT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO
   INCREASED SHOWERS/TSTMS ACROSS THE ERN ROCKIES. SOME OF THESE STORMS
   COULD CONTAIN STRONG/SEVERE DOWNBURST WINDS OVER NERN NM/ERN CO.
