..SYNOPSIS
 
 
A ZONALLY ORIENTED SYNOPTIC PATTERN WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE  
LOWER 48 ON D2/FRIDAY. AT THE SURFACE, AN OFFSHORE PRESSURE  
GRADIENT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS DRY AREAS OF SOUTHERN  
CALIFORNIA, ALTHOUGH THIS GRADIENT SHOULD BE WEAKER THAN IN RECENT  
DAYS AS HIGH PRESSURE WEAKENS ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN IN THE ABSENCE  
OF ANY SUBSTANTIAL SYNOPTIC SYSTEMS. AS A RESULT, SURFACE WINDS ARE  
EXPECTED TO BE WEAKER IN COASTAL RANGES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, WITH  
ONLY LOCALLY ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS EXPECTED AS RH VALUES  
REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS.  
 
FARTHER EAST, A SURFACE TROUGH WILL ORGANIZE IN THE LEE OF THE  
ROCKIES, RESULTING IN A FEW AREAS OF DOWNSLOPE FLOW PARTICULARLY IN  
NORTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO AND SOUTHEASTERN WYOMING. RH VALUES IN MOST  
AREAS SHOULD REMAIN WELL ABOVE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS BASED ON LATEST  
GUIDANCE, ALTHOUGH MODEL TRENDS WILL BE MONITORED.
