..SYNOPSIS
 
 
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE EASTERN U.S. WILL BRING CONTINUED  
NORTHERLY WINDS ACROSS THE FL PENINSULA TODAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN  
CONTINUED DRY CONDITIONS, WITH RH VALUES FALLING GENERALLY INTO THE  
30-40 PERCENT RANGE, THOUGH A FEW LOCATIONS MAY BRIEFLY FALL AS LOW  
AS 27 PERCENT. MULTIPLE DRY DAYS HAS RESULTED IN LOWERING FUEL  
MOISTURE, BUT OVERALL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS SHOULD REMAIN LOW GIVEN  
LIGHT WINDS AROUND 5-10 MPH. FURTHER WEST, A LEE TROUGH WILL EXTEND  
SOUTH/SOUTHEAST FROM EASTERN CO INTO TX PANHANDLE. AMPLE SUNSHINE  
COMBINED WITH DOWNSLOPE WARMING/DRYING WILL RESULT IN UNSEASONABLY  
MILD TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S TO LOW 70S, AND RH VALUES FALLING INTO  
THE 20-30 PERCENT RANGE. WESTERLY WINDS AROUND 20-25 MPH WITH HIGHER  
GUSTS ALSO ARE EXPECTED. OVERALL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL BE  
LIMITED BY MARGINAL RH VALUES AND ERCS THAT ARE WELL BELOW AVERAGE  
ACROSS THE HIGH PLAINS OF EASTERN NM INTO THE TX PANHANDLE.
