   ...SYNOPSIS...
   MORNING SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A POTENT SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING
   INTO THE GREAT BASIN REGION.  THIS FEATURE WILL LIFT NEWD TOWARDS
   THE NRN HIGH PLAINS BY THE END OF THE PERIOD.  A WEAKENING UPPER
   DISTURBANCE OVER THE NERN GOMEX WILL MEANDER SLOWLY EWD OVER PARTS
   OF THE SERN U.S. 
    
   AT THE SURFACE...LEE SURFACE TROUGHING WILL OCCUR OVER THE CENTRAL
   HIGH PLAINS IN RESPONSE TO AN UPPER SHORTWAVE MOVING TOWARDS THE
   REGION.  ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPS AND MIN RH 15-20 PERCENT OVER NERN
   NM/NWRN TX PANHANDLE MAY ENHANCE AN OTHERWISE LIMITED FIRE WEATHER
   THREAT DUE TO MARGINAL SUSTAINED WINDS /GENERALLY BELOW 20 MPH/. 
   FURTHER E...A SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL EXTEND SWD ALONG THE
   E COAST INTO PARTS OF THE SERN STATES.  INCREASING CLOUDS AND A
   GRADUAL NWWD SHIFT IN LOW LEVEL MOISTURE OVER PARTS FL/SRN GA WILL
   TEND TO SHUNT LOWER RH VALUES WWD TO PARTS OF AL/MS.  WINDS HOWEVER
   WILL REMAIN LIGHT ACROSS THE AREA LIMITING APPRECIABLE FIRE WEATHER
   CONDITIONS.

   ANOTHER IN A SERIES OF SHORTWAVE TROUGHS EMANATING FROM THE ERN

   SURFACE TROUGHING IN THE HIGH PLAINS WILL LEAD TO A MODEST SURFACE
   PRESSURE GRADIENT.  SOME GUSTY CONDITIONS MAY OCCUR OVER PARTS KS/OK
   BUT RH WILL LIKELY REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS DESPITE SOME
   RELATIVELY DRY AIR ADVECTING INTO THE REGION FROM THE LOWER MS
