   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF THE EASTERN GREAT
   BASIN...

   The forecast remains on track, and only minor adjustments were made
   to the ongoing Critical area based on the latest surface
   observations and high-resolution guidance consensus. For details,
   see the previous discussion below. 

   Of note, fuels continue to dry across parts of the southern Plains
   where above-average temperatures are forecast. The combination of
   hot/dry conditions (minimum RH nearing 25 percent) and breezy
   southerly surface winds of 15-20 mph (with higher gusts) could
   promote locally elevated conditions generally along and west of the
   I-35 corridor in parts of OK and TX. However, these conditions
   appear too localized for Elevated highlights.

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0111 AM CDT Mon Jul 04 2022/

   ...Synopsis...
   A mid-level short-wave trough positioned over the Pacific Northwest
   will lift northeast into southwestern portions of Canada, while
   another short-wave enters in its wake. Consequently, the broader
   upper-level trough situated over much of the West will remain
   quasi-stationary throughout the day. Southwesterly mid-level flow
   within this regime will remain generally light, but approaching
   30-35 kt over portions of the Great Basin.

   ...Portions of the Eastern Great Basin...
   Diurnal heating/mixing will allow for afternoon sustained winds of
   15-20 mph and RH values into the teens over a broad region,
   extending from southern Nevada into central Wyoming. The region of
   strongest winds should be confined to parts of southeast Nevada and
   western Utah, where critical highlights are maintained. Elsewhere,
   elevated fire-weather conditions will be possible where fuels remain
   receptive to large-fire spread.
