   EARLY MORNING WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS WRN UPPER TROUGH AXIS HAS
   MOVED INLAND AND IS APPROACHING THE ID PANHANDLE. THE TROUGH WILL
   DEEPEN INTO A CLOSED UPPER LOW IN RESPONSE TO STRONG LARGE SCALE

   SASK BY EARLY TUESDAY. ELSEWHERE...UPPER MID/UPPER LOW WILL DEEPEN
   ACROSS W TX AND SLOWLY MOVE NEWD TOWARD WRN OK TONIGHT. AT THE
   SFC...LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE GRADUALLY EAST ACROSS THE
   DAKOTAS...WITH COLD FRONT EXTENDING THROUGH ECNTRL WY/NRN UT/ECNTRL
   NV BY LATE TODAY. ALTHOUGH WIDESPREAD CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS ARE
   NOT EXPECTED...WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST ACROSS PORTIONS
   OF ID/WY BEHIND THE FRONT...WITH AN INCREASED RISK OF WIND DRIVEN
   WILDFIRES.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0455 AM CDT MON JUN 25 2007
   
   VALID 261200Z - 271200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   ON TUESDAY...THERE WILL BE A BRIEF RESPITE FROM THE PERIOD OF
   DRY/WINDY CONDITIONS ACROSS THE WEST. UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL BE
   LOCATED ACROSS ERN MANITOBA AT THE START OF THE PERIOD AND IS
   FORECAST TO MOVE EAST TOWARD NWRN ONTARIO BY WEDNESDAY. UPPER RIDGE
   WILL BEGIN TO BUILD AGAIN OVER THE NRN ROCKIES AHEAD OF NEXT STORM
   SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE ERN PACIFIC. AT THE SFC...COLD FRONT
   WILL EXTEND FROM WRN LAKE SUPERIOR THROUGH WRN IA INTO CNTRL CO BY
   LATE AFTN/EVENING. SHOWERS AND TSTMS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG AND AHEAD OF
   THE FRONT ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST WITH ANOTHER CONCENTRATED AREA OF
   RAIN ACROSS MUCH OF THE SRN PLAINS DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF A NEARBY
   UPPER LOW. 
   
   SFC WINDS WILL BE DIMINISHED RELATIVE TO RECENT DAYS ACROSS MUCH OF
   THE WEST...AND TSTMS SHOULD BE CONFINED TO THE SRN AND CNTRL
   ROCKIES. THUS...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED
   ACROSS THE WEST ON TUESDAY...BUT INCREASING WINDS WILL RAISE THE
   POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS BY WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY
   ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN/SOUTHWEST.
