   MODERATE NLY TO ELY WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF SRN
   CA...THE LOWER CO RIVER VALLEY...AND SRN AZ. AS TEMPERATURES WARM
   INTO THE 70S AND 80S FRI AFTERNOON...RH VALUES SHOULD FALL BELOW 15
   PERCENT FOR A FEW HOURS. REGARDLESS...FUELS SHOULD REMAIN GENERALLY
   MOIST/UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS THIS REGION...AND THEREFORE NO ELEVATED

   ACROSS MUCH OF THE NRN/CNTRL PLAINS FRI AFTERNOON. MODEST WLY/NWLY
   DOWNSLOPE WINDS OF 10-15 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR PORTIONS OF SRN

   THE 50S. A RELATIVE MINIMUM IN PRECIPITATION HAS OCCURRED OVER THIS
   AREA THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS. REGARDLESS...THE MARGINAL NATURE OF THE
