   ...Synopsis...
   An upper-level ridge will move into the Plains today. Across the
   West, an upper-level trough will pivot into the Pacific Northwest
   and northern California. At the surface, southerly winds will return
   the southern High Plains on the western flank of a surface high
   pressure system. A cold front will progress into northern California
   and western/central parts of the Great Basin by the end of the
   period.

   Strong winds along with areas of lowered RH are possible ahead of
   the front in the Great Basin. Fuels are too moist for fire weather
   concerns. Across parts of north-central Montana, surface winds will
   increase ahead of the cold front as well. Guidance continues to vary
   on the degree of drying that will occur. Even with areas of 20-25%
   RH, winds generally will stay below 15 mph except within areas of
   terrain enhancement. Locally elevated conditions are most probable
   in the lee of the Lewis Range where some fuels remain dry. Lastly,
   modestly dry and windy conditions are expected in the southern High
   Plains. Winds continue to appear relatively light (below 15 mph)
   along with fuels not being particularly dry.
