   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   STAGNANT LARGE SCALE PATTERN WILL FLUCTUATE LITTLE THROUGH THE
   PERIOD. CLOSED/CUT-OFF UPPER LOW WILL REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY OVER
   THE NORTHERN PLAINS...WITH UPPER RIDGING PREVALENT OVER THE WESTERN

   SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN COMMON ACROSS MUCH OF THE
   PLAINS AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY REGION.
   
   ...FL/GA/SC...
   WARM/DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES/MUCH
   OF FL TODAY. HOWEVER...AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE GRADUALLY SHIFTS
   EASTWARD...SOME IMPROVEMENT IS EXPECTED TODAY VIA SLIGHTLY HIGHER
   DEWPOINTS/RH VALUES. SHORT DURATION/NEAR-CRITICAL CONDITIONS ARE
   NEVERTHELESS POSSIBLE...WITH TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO THE UPPER
   80S/LOWER 90S. RELATIVELY HIGH FIRE GROWTH POTENTIAL WILL CONTINUE
   DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS AS EXTREME DROUGHT PERSISTS ACROSS
   SOUTHERN GA AND PORTIONS OF FL.
   
   ...NORTHERN CA/INTERIOR ORE/FAR WESTERN NV...
   ALONG AND JUST WEST OF THE UPPER RIDGE AXIS...FORECAST
   GUIDANCE/MODEL SOUNDINGS SUGGEST SUFFICIENT CONVECTIVE INSTABILITY
   WILL EXIST ATOP A HOT/WELL MIXED BOUNDARY LAYER. THIS WILL LEAD TO
   ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING ACROSS NORTHERN
   CA/INTERIOR ORE AND PERHAPS FAR WESTERN NV. THE MOST LIKELY AREAS
   FOR ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE IN LOCALES ALONG/EAST OF THE
   ORE/CA CASCADES AND SISKIYOU/MT SHASTA VICINITY. THE POTENTIAL WILL
   EXIST FOR LIGHTNING IGNITIONS...WITH GUSTY/ERRATIC WINDS NEAR

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   CLOSED/CUT-OFF UPPER LOW IS FORECAST TO MIGRATE SLOWLY
   EAST-SOUTHEAST OVER THE DAKOTAS ON FRIDAY. BROAD UPPER RIDGE WILL
   GENERALLY REMAIN DOMINANT ACROSS THE WESTERN STATES...ALTHOUGH THE
   UPPER RIDGE OVER THE SOUTHEAST WILL BEGIN TO DAMPEN INTO SATURDAY
   WITH THE APPROACH OF AN UPPER LOW OVER THE NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO.
   OVERALL CONDITIONS SHOULD CONTINUE TO IMPROVE ACROSS FL AND THE
   ADJACENT SOUTHEAST STATES...WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS
   POSSIBLY BRINGING SOME RELIEF TO THE FL PANHANDLE/SOUTHERN FL ON
   FRIDAY.
   
   ...INTERIOR ORE/NORTHERN CA/WESTERN NV...
   MAINLY DRY THUNDERSTORMS WILL AGAIN BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF
   INTERIOR ORE AND NORTHERN CA /PRIMARILY ALONG AND EAST OF THE
   CASCADES/...INTO WESTERN NV FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THESE
   MAINLY DRY THUNDERSTORMS MAY LEAD TO FIRE IGNITIONS...WITH
   GUSTY/ERRATIC WINDS NEAR THUNDERSTORMS.
   
   ...FL/SOUTHEAST STATES...
   AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO SHIFT EASTWARD ACROSS THE
   WESTERN ATLANTIC...AND AN UPPER LOW SLOWLY ADVANCES EASTWARD ACROSS
   THE NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO...OVERALL CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO
   GRADUALLY IMPROVE ACROSS FL AND THE ADJACENT SOUTHEAST STATES ON
   FRIDAY. ADDITIONAL CLOUD COVER/SLIGHTLY HIGHER DEWPOINTS SHOULD
   GENERALLY KEEP OVERALL CONDITIONS FROM REACHING CRITICAL THRESHOLDS.
