   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   AS AN UPPER TROUGH LIFTS FROM THE NRN PLAINS NEWD INTO CANADA
   TODAY...A BELT OF ENHANCED MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL REMAIN MOSTLY
   CONFINED TO THE NRN TIER OF STATES WITHIN THE CONUS. UPPER RIDGING
   WILL PREVAIL OVER MUCH OF THE CNTRL AND SWRN STATES. AT THE SFC...
   LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER TROUGH DESCRIBED ABOVE WILL
   LIKEWISE MOVE NEWD OVER MANITOBA/ONTARIO THROUGH THIS EVENING...WITH
   A TRAILING COLD FRONT MOVING EWD/SEWD ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
   NRN/CNTRL PLAINS. BREEZY POST-FRONTAL WINDS AROUND 10-15 MPH ACROSS
   THE NRN PLAINS SHOULD NOT ALIGN WITH RH VALUES LOW ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY
   AN ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER AREA. ELSEWHERE...LOCALLY ELEVATED
   CONDITIONS MAY OCCUR ACROSS PORTIONS OF CNTRL/WRN WY THIS
   AFTERNOON...BUT THE BRIEF/SPOTTY NATURE OF EXPECTED GUSTY WINDS
   CONTINUES TO PRECLUDE AN ELEVATED DESIGNATION.
