   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0146 AM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018/

   Large-scale upper troughing with several embedded shortwave
   perturbations will remain over the central and eastern CONUS on Day
   2/Thursday. Upper ridging will persist over the western states as an
   upper low approaches the coast of northern CA and OR by late
   Thursday night. At the surface, a cold front will develop southward
   across the southern/central Plains through the day.

   A small spatial overlap of strong/gusty post-frontal northeasterly
   winds and marginally lowered RH values may occur across parts of
   east-central NM Thursday afternoon. However, RH values are not
   currently expected to fall below 20% due to cooler temperatures
   behind the front, precluding an elevated delineation. Warm/dry
   surface conditions will exist farther west across portions of the
   Southwest and Great Basin, but generally light winds should limit
   substantial fire-weather concerns.
