   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A STRONG JET PROGRESSING SWD THROUGH THE WRN CANADIAN PROVINCES WILL
   ACT TO SLOWLY DEEPEN A WEAK TROUGH OVER THE NRN INTERMOUNTAIN WEST.

   SHIFT EWD AND STRENGTHEN...BECOMING ROUGHLY CENTERED NEAR THE
   UT/ID/WY BORDER BY LATE AFTERNOON. ALTHOUGH BREEZY WLY/SWLY WINDS
   MAY ALIGN WITH MARGINAL RELATIVE HUMIDITIES BY AFTERNOON ACROSS MUCH
   OF THE GREAT BASIN...COOL TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY LIMIT THE FIRE
   THREAT.
   
   ELSEWHERE...AN UPPER LOW JUST N OF THE GREAT LAKES THIS MORNING WILL
   CONTINUE TO TRAVERSE EWD AND QUICKLY EXIT NEW ENGLAND THROUGH THE
   PERIOD. ACROSS THE CENTRAL STATES...CONFLUENT FLOW BEHIND THE
   EXITING LOW WILL ALLOW A SURFACE HIGH TO SHIFT EWD TO THE GREAT
   LAKES REGION. COOL/MOIST CONDITIONS WILL PRECLUDE ANY CRITICAL AREA
   OUTLINES.
