   A midlevel trough and belt of south-southwesterly flow aloft will
   advance east-northeastward across the Southwest on Friday. A surface
   low south of south-central NM will promote modestly breezy westerly
   surface winds across southeastern AZ and southwestern NM. Given a
   deep/dry boundary layer across the area (single-digit RH), elevated
   to locally critical fire-weather conditions are expected. The
   primary limiting factor for the addition of a Critical area
   continues to be marginal surface winds (15-20 mph). Across northern
   Arizona on the fringe of better moisture located across the Four
   Corners into western New Mexico, isolated dry thunderstorms will be
   possible along the Mogollon Rim. 

   Enhanced westerly flow aloft will move into the base of a
   mid-level trough across the Northwest Friday afternoon. The
   associated downslope flow across the Cascades and Sierra will favor
   locally dry/breezy conditions across portions of northwestern NV and
   eastern WA/northeastern OR where fuels have dried sufficiently to
   support fire spread. As a result, elevated conditions are expected
   for both areas, with locally critical conditions possible in
   northwestern NV -- where 20-25 mph sustained westerly surface winds
   are expected.
