DISCUSSION...  
SOLUTIONS GENERALLY AGREE THAT AN UPPER TROUGH OVER NORTHWEST  
MEXICO WILL CLOSE OFF LATER TONIGHT, THEN EDGE NORTHEAST INTO WEST  
TEXAS THURSDAY. ANTECEDENT MOISTURE LEVELS WILL BE EXTREMELY LOW  
WHILE ACCOMPANYING MOISTURE ALSO LOOK MEAGER. PERHAPS COULD SEE  
SLIGHTLY BETTER LOW LEVEL MOISTURE BY EARLY THURSDAY. BREEZY  
CONDITIONS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY WITH  
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES. EXPECTING SLIGHTLY RELAXED SURFACE  
PRESSURE GRADIENT FRIDAY, OTHERWISE STILL MILD IN ADVANCE OF A  
WEAK COLD FRONT EXPECTED TO SLIDE SOUTHWARD INTO THE AREA LATE  
FRIDAY NIGHT AND EARLY SATURDAY LEADING TO MINOR COOLING AS A  
STRONGER UPPER TROUGH STEERS BY TO THE NORTH. A GRADUAL WARMING  
TREND SHOULD ENSUE SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WHILE REMAINING  
DRY. STRONGER TROUGH CURRENTLY DEPICTED CARVING ACROSS THE  
NORTHERN PLAINS FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK - WE'LL BE WATCHING  
TRENDS IN THE DAYS TO COME. MINOR CHANGES OVERALL FROM PREVIOUS  
FORECAST. RMCQUEEN  
 
FIRE WEATHER...  
WIND SPEEDS WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE BACK INTO BREEZY CATEGORY  
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS SURFACE LOW PRESSURE DEEPENS OVER THE  
HIGH PLAINS. HUMIDITY LEVELS WEDNESDAY WILL BE LOW ENOUGH THAT  
ELEVATED FIRE DANGER IS POSSIBLE. FOR THURSDAY, HUMIDITY LEVELS  
ARE UNCERTAIN AS A WEAK UPPER TROUGH PASSES OVERHEAD. BUT ERC  
(ENERGY RELEASE COMPONENT) LEVELS HAVE TRENDED HIGHER OVER RECENT  
WEEKS SO ANY POSSIBILITY OF SIGNIFICANT WIND COULD LEAD TO HIGHER  
THREAT OF WILDFIRE SPREAD. RMCQUEEN
