   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE JUXTAPOSITION FOR LARGE SCALE SUPPORTIVE FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
   AND RECEPTIVE FUELS WILL REMAIN LIMITED TODAY.  A SEASONABLY STRONG
   CLOSED LOW OVER ONTARIO/UPPER GREAT LAKES MOVE SLOWLY SEWD AS A
   MID-UPPER ANTICYCLONE RETROGRADES WWD FROM THE SRN HIGH PLAINS
   TOWARDS THE DESERT SW.  AT THE SURFACE...A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE EWD
   ACROSS MUCH OF THE ERN U.S. WITH THE TRAILING PORTION STALLING OVER
   TX.  SEASONABLY MORE MILD TEMPS AND TRANQUIL CONDITIONS WILL BE OVER
   MUCH OF THE MIDWEST AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE REGION.  FURTHER
   W...SURFACE CYCLOGENESIS INVOF ALBERTA/SASKATCHEWAN WITH A PRESSURE
   TROUGH EXTENDING SWD INTO MT WILL FAVOR A DOWNSLOPE
   REGIME...PARTICULARLY IN N-CNTRL MT.  UNRECEPTIVE FUELS--PER LOCAL
   OFFICE COORDINATION--SUGGEST THAT THE GUSTY WINDS/MARGINALLY LOW RH
   THREAT WILL BE MITIGATED.  VERY HOT/DRY CONDITIONS WILL RESIDE
   ACROSS PARTS OF THE W COAST.

   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0306 AM CDT SUN JUN 28 2009
   
   VALID 291200Z - 301200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE PATTERN OVER THE CONUS DOES NOT FAVOR ANY LARGE SCALE AREAS WITH
   STRONG WINDS/CRITICALLY LOW RH.  A CLOSED UPPER LOW WILL REMAIN
   SITUATED OVER THE GREAT LAKES WITH A TROUGH IN THE NERN CONUS AND A
   MID-UPPER ANTICYCLONE WILL BE CENTERED OVER THE GREAT BASIN.  A WEAK
   FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL BE DRAPED FROM THE CNTRL PLAINS NWWD TOWARDS
   THE NRN HIGH PLAINS THEN SWWD TO THE NRN GREAT BASIN.  SOME
   MID-LEVEL MOISTURE AND LIFT ALONG THE BOUNDARY DEPICTED IN MODEL
   FORECAST SOUNDINGS MAY LEAD TO VERY ISOLD TSTMS IN PARTS OF THE NRN
   ROCKIES...WITH ISOLD-SCTD TSTMS ELSEWHERE OVER THE CNTRL
   ROCKIES/DESERT SW.  DRY TSTM POTENTIAL APPEARS RATHER LOW AND
   PRECLUDES THE DELINEATION OF ANY CRITICAL AREAS.
