   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR MUCH OF GA INTO FL...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A LONGWAVE TROUGH WILL COVER MUCH OF THE CNTRL AND ERN U.S. WITH AN
   UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WRN STATES. A WEAK UPPER SHORTWAVE TROUGH AXIS
   EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LARGER TROUGH WILL SHIFT SEWD ACROSS THE SERN
   CONUS WITH A SECONDARY SURGE OF HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE. THIS
   WILL PRODUCE GUSTY NWLY WINDS ALONG WITH VERY LOW RH FROM FL INTO
   THE CAROLINAS. TO THE W...A WEAK UPPER LOW WILL DRIFT EWD ACROSS SRN
   CA INTO AZ...AND WILL INCREASE WIND POTENTIAL OVER THOSE AREAS WHERE
   VERY HOT AND DRY WEATHER PERSISTS.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA - MUCH OF GA INTO FL...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: LONG DURATIONS OF LOW RH...GUSTY NWLY
   WINDS...DROUGHT
   
   ANOTHER SURGE OF HIGH PRESSURE INTO THE REGION WILL CONTINUE THE DRY
   AND GUSTY CONDITIONS INTO FRIDAY. SUSTAINED NWLY WINDS OF 10-15 MPH
   WILL BE COMMON WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR GUSTS OVER 2O MPH. RH WILL
   READILY DIP BELOW 30 PERCENT BY MIDDAY WITH SOME LOCATIONS REACHING
   THE UPPER TEENS BY LATE AFTERNOON. GIVEN MULTIPLE DAYS OF LOW RH AND
   PERSISTENT DROUGHT...CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL.
   
   ...AZ...
   SLY WINDS WILL INCREASE AS A WEAK UPPER LOW APPROACHES. SUSTAINED
   SURFACE WINDS OF 10-15 MPH WILL BE LIKELY WITH HIGHER GUSTS
   ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN...WHILE TEMPERATURES REACH THE 90S
   AND WITH SINGLE DIGIT RH. GIVEN SEVERE DROUGHT...THE INCREASED WINDS
   WILL ENHANCE FIRE DANGER.
