   The overall forecast remains on track with no changes. Localized
   elevated fire weather conditions may be possible across portions of
   the High Plains with locally gusty downslope winds and warming
   temperatures. However, recent snow cover may temper fuels somewhat
   suggesting any threat will likely remain localized and isolated. See
   the previous discussion for additional information.

   50+ kt north-northwesterly flow at 500 mb will overspread the
   central Plains states today as a mid-level trough impinges on the
   Atlantic Coastline. Surface high pressure across the Plains will
   allow for modest downslope westerly surface flow from southwest
   South Dakota into the Texas Panhandle through the afternoon hours.
   While surface temperatures are expected to be on the cool side (i.e.
   struggling to exceed 50F) across the central and southern High
   Plains, RH is expected to drop into the 15-25% range by afternoon
   peak heating. The latest guidance consensus suggests that patchy
   areas of 15+ mph sustained northwesterly surface winds are possible
   from the Nebraska to Texas Panhandles this afternoon. However,
   overall cooler temperatures and the fragmented nature of the
   stronger surface winds preclude Elevated highlights this outlook.
