   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR ERN UT/WRN CO/SW WY...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER LOW...NOW APPROACHING NW MT...WILL MOVE INTO SRN ALBERTA/SASK
   TODAY AND TONIGHT. MID LEVEL 75 KT JET MAX WILL ACCOMPANY THIS
   FEATURE AS IT NEARS THE NRN PLAINS. SYNOPTIC LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
   WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN OVER THE DAKOTAS THIS AFTN...AND INTENSE
   PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL INDUCE STRONG SLY WINDS ACROSS THE
   PLAINS...AND STRONG WLY WINDS ACROSS MT/WY. CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS
   ARE LIKELY ACROSS PORTIONS OF UT/WRN CO AHEAD OF SFC COLD FRONT
   WHERE TEMPS IN THE 80S/90S ARE EXPECTED ALONG WITH LOW HUMIDITY
   VALUES.
   
   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA - ERN UT/WRN CO/SW WY...
   
   PRIMARY CONDITIONS: SUSTAINED SFC WINDS 15-25 MPH WITH HIGHER
   GUSTS/MIN RH VALUES BELOW 15 PERCENT/NEAR RECORD HIGH TEMPS/DRY
   FUELS
   
   SFC COLD FRONT WAS LOCATED ACROSS NRN NV EARLY THIS MORNING AND IS
   FORECAST TO SLOWLY MOVE ACROSS UT/CO DURING THE DAY. TEMPS AHEAD OF
   THE FRONT WILL RANGE FROM THE MID 80S INTO THE 90S ACROSS ERN UT/WRN
   CO. SOME RECORD HIGH TEMPS ARE POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY IN THE VALLEYS.
   MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS...WITH A WIND
   SHIFT EXPECTED BY MID AFTERNOON ACROSS ERN UT AND LATE AFTN/EARLY
   EVENING ACROSS WRN CO. ISOLD DRY TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE AHEAD OF THE
   FRONT. IF TSTMS ARE ABLE TO DEVELOP...LITTLE RAIN WOULD ACCOMPANY
   THE STORMS AS FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST TSTM BASES WELL ABOVE 10000
   FT AGL. GIVEN THE WIND PROFILE...DANGEROUS TSTM OUTFLOW WINDS WOULD
   ALSO BE LIKELY WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF DRY MICROBURST WINDS. SEVERAL
   REPORTS OF 70+ MPH WINDS WERE OBSERVED YESTERDAY IN NRN UT WITHIN
   SIMILAR ENVIRONMENT.
   
   ...NRN SAC VALLEY/FOOTHILLS...
   LOCALLY STRONG NLY WINDS ARE LIKELY TODAY...WITH SUSTAINED SPEEDS OF
   15-20 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS. MAX TEMPS WILL CLIMB INTO THE 90S WITH
   MIN HUMIDITY VALUES FALLING BELOW 15 PERCENT. GIVEN MODERATE LONG
   TERM DROUGHT AND LOW 1000-HR FUEL MOISTURE VALUES...THE DRY NLY FLOW
   WILL INCREASE THE WILDFIRE RISK TODAY SHOULD IGNITIONS OCCUR.
