   VALID 211200Z - 221200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL AMPLIFY OVER THE PLAINS...AS THE LEADING
   EDGE OF AN EXTENSIVE WIND-SPEED MAXIMUM ADVANCES SEWD ACROSS
   PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE CNTRL ROCKIES. IN RESPONSE...A
   SFC TROUGH WILL STRENGTHEN IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES. THE ATTENDANT
   ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT SHOULD PROMOTE AREAS OF MODERATE TO
   LOCALLY STRONG SFC WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SWRN STATES TO THE
   CNTRL/SRN HIGH PLAINS. IN THESE AREAS...MODEST DIURNAL RH REDUCTIONS
   WILL BE AUGMENTED BY DOWNSLOPE-FLOW-ENCOURAGED WARMING/DRYING.
   HOWEVER...WITHOUT A WARMER/DRIER AIR MASS...AND WITHOUT STRONGER SFC
   WINDS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS ARE UNNECESSARY.
