   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER-AIR PATTERN WILL AMPLIFY THROUGH THE PERIOD AS A SURFACE COLD
   FRONT AND ASSOCIATED SURFACE HIGH-PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVE RAPIDLY SWD
   THROUGH THE CENTRAL U.S.  

   SEVERAL UPPER-LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVING SEWD ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE
   EASTERN U.S. TROUGH WILL HELP AMPLIFY THE EASTERN TROUGH BY EARLY
   FRIDAY.  AN EASTERN PACIFIC TROUGH WILL BEGIN TO MOVE INTO THE WEST
   COAST.  THE GREAT BASIN UPPER RIDGE WILL STRENGTHEN A LITTLE AS IT
   SHIFTS SLIGHTLY EWD TO THE ROCKIES.

   COOLER AND DRIER AIR ALONG WITH BREEZY N/NWLY FLOW CAN BE EXPECTED
   BEHIND THE SURFACE FRONT AS IT MOVES SWD THROUGH THE CNTRL AND SRN
   PLAINS TODAY.  WINDS OVER THE CNTRL PLAINS WILL STRENGTHEN TO 15 TO
   20 MPH WITH SOME HIGHER AFTERNOON GUSTS TO 25 MPH.  IT WILL BE COOL
   TO MILD BEHIND THE FRONT AND HUMIDITY MAY DROP BRIEFLY INTO THE 25
   TO 30 PERCENT RANGE FOR A FEW HOURS...HOWEVER HUMIDITY SHOULD RISE
   IN THE EARLY EVENING AS TEMPERATURES COOL RATHER RAPIDLY AFTER
   SUNSET.  IT IS LIKELY THAT SOME OF THE FINER FUELS SUCH AS THE
   GRASSES MAY BE DRY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR...HOWEVER NO LARGE-SCALE
   FIRE WEATHER AREAS ARE EXPECTED WITH MARGINAL WIND/HUMIDITY AND COOL
   TO MILD CONDITIONS THIS AFTERNOON.
