   High pressure will continue to dominate across central portions of
   the country on Wednesday.  Meanwhile, strong surface cyclogenesis
   will occur across the Gulf Stream and a weak surface pressure
   gradient will persist across dry areas of the Southwest.  Late in
   the period, a storm system in the eastern Pacific will result in
   areas of rain especially in portions of central California. 
   Although locally elevated fire weather conditions may develop
   through mid-day in inland areas of southern California, the overall
   synoptic pattern favors quiescent fire weather conditions.  No areas
   will be highlighted for this outlook.
