   Longwave ridging aloft will dominate much of the western CONUS on
   D2/Friday. The strongest mid-level flow will be shunted north of
   areas with critically dry fuels. At the surface, some troughing is
   expected in the northern Rockies as the next shortwave trough moves
   towards the Pacific Northwest. A preponderance of guidance shows
   only weak troughing which will limit surface wind speeds to below
   critical thresholds.
