   Upper ridging will continue to amplify across much of the western
   CONUS today as a weak upper low remains off the coast of
   central/southern CA. Farther east, a shortwave trough will dig
   southeastward from the Canadian Prairie provinces into the northern
   Plains and Upper Midwest by tonight. At the surface, some increase
   in northerly post-frontal winds will occur across parts of eastern
   MT into the western Dakotas and northeastern WY this afternoon.
   However, RH values are forecast to become only marginally lowered,
   which precludes the introduction of an elevated area at this time.
