   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0119 AM CST Tue Jan 02 2018/

   The preexisting anticyclone across much of the CONUS will finally
   begin to weak throughout D2/Wed, resulting in a gradually modifying
   continental airmass across much of the country.  Substantial
   cyclogenesis will occur near/east of the Gulf Stream throughout the
   forecast period.  Meanwhile, the weak offshore pressure gradient in
   dry areas of the Southwest will weaken further - and a few areas of
   much-needed precipitation may approach this region during the
   evening.  Large-scale fire weather conditions are expected to be
   negligible throughout the forecast period.
