   Valid 191200Z - 201200Z

   A strong, low-latitude mid-level trough across northern Mexico and
   the southwest United States will fracture on Sunday, with a lead
   shortwave trough quickly lifting northeast into the central Plains
   and a secondary trough closing off and slowly moving east-southeast
   toward southern Texas. At the surface, lee cyclogenesis will occur
   during the afternoon across northeast Colorado or southeast Wyoming.

   ...Eastern Colorado...

   Southerly surface winds are expected to ramp up in response to the
   aforementioned surface cyclogenesis across northeast Colorado or
   southeast Wyoming. Minimum relative-humidity values should fall into
   the 20-25% range, with isolated areas falling into the upper teens.
   Despite relative-humidity values being slightly on the high side,
   given temperatures in the upper-50s to mid-60s Fahrenheit and the
   strength of the expected low-level wind fields, fine fuels should
   cure enough to support an elevated fire-weather threat for a few
   hours during the afternoon.
