   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A GENERALLY ZONAL/PROGRESSIVE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN WILL EXIST ACROSS
   THE CONUS TODAY. SEVERAL UPPER LEVEL SYSTEMS WILL PROGRESS EWD
   ACROSS WRN STATES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THIS PATTERN. AS A
   RESULT...ONSHORE FLOW AND MOIST/COOL CONDITIONS WILL EXIST OVER CA.
   THIS ONSHORE FLOW MAY SUPPORT LIGHT RAIN OVER SRN CA LATE IN THE
   PERIOD. ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE NATION...A BROAD AREA OF SFC HIGH
   PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN CONTROL OVER THE ERN STATES WITH BELOW
   NORMAL TEMPERATURES. IN ADDITION LOW RH READINGS WILL EXIST...BUT
   THE COMBINATION OF COOL TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT WINDS WILL PRECLUDE
   CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
   
   ...SERN STATES...
   SLOWLY MODIFYING TEMPERATURES WILL OCCUR TODAY AS HIGH PRESSURE
   MOVES OFF THE SERN ATLANTIC COAST. VERY DRY AIR WILL SUPPORT MIN RH
   READINGS FROM 20-30 PERCENT. HOWEVER COOL TEMPERATURES /50S/ ALONG
   WITH LIGHT WINDS WILL PRECLUDE ANY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.
   
   ...SRN PLAINS...
   A MODERATE PRESSURE GRADIENT DUE IN PART TO THE PRESENCE OF A LEE
   TROUGH OVER THE HIGH PLAINS /SUPPORTED BY THE ZONAL FLOW OVER THE
   CENTRAL AND SRN ROCKIES/ WILL AID IN MODERATE SSWLY WINDS FROM 20-25
   MPH THIS AFTERNOON. GENERALLY COOL TEMPERATURES /50S/ WILL LIMIT RH
