   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A LEAD WAVE NEAR THE NV/UT BORDER WILL CONTINUE TO PROGRESS EWD
   TOWARDS THE CNTRL PLAINS. DURING THE AFTERNOON...A SURFACE LOW NEAR
   SERN CO WILL SLOWLY SHIFT SEWD TO THE TX/OK PANHANDLES AND DEEPEN IN
   RESPONSE TO THE UPPER WAVE...LEADING TO A MARGINAL FIRE THREAT OVER
   PORTIONS OF ERN NM AND WRN TX.
   
   ELSEWHERE...AN UPPER LOW WILL SLOWLY SHIFT SEWD THROUGH THE ERN
   GREAT LAKES REGION....WHILE ANOTHER UPPER LOW MOVES TOWARDS THE
   PACIFIC COAST. COOL AND/OR MOIST CONDITIONS IN ASSOCIATION WITH
   THESE SYSTEMS WILL NOT BE FAVORABLE FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER.
   
   ...PORTIONS OF ERN NM AND WRN TX...
   SURFACE WINDS WILL INCREASE BY AFTERNOON IN RESPONSE TO AN UPPER
   WAVE AND TO A DEEPENING SURFACE LOW NEAR THE TX/OK PANHANDLES.
   SUSTAINED SPEEDS NEAR 20 MPH MAY BE POSSIBLE...AND WHILE MIXING
   HEIGHTS WILL NOT BE PARTICULARLY HIGH...JET WINDS MIXING TO THE
   SURFACE MAY SUPPORT GUSTS NEAR 30 MPH. LIMITING FACTOR APPEARS TO BE
   MARGINAL RELATIVE HUMIDITIES...AND CLOUD COVER FROM THE UPPER WAVE
   MAY LIMIT MORE FAVORABLE HEATING LEADING TO LOWER RELATIVE
   HUMIDITIES. HOWEVER...A HEIGHTENED FIRE THREAT WILL EXIST.
