..SYNOPSIS
 
 
ANOTHER ROUND OF WEAK LEE TROUGHING WILL OCCUR OVER THE SOUTHERN  
HIGH PLAINS TODAY AHEAD OF A STRENGTHENING SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER THE  
SOUTHWESTERN STATES. THIS WILL RESULT IN CONTINUED DRY CONDITIONS  
ACROSS EASTERN NM INTO THE TX PANHANDLE WITH RH VALUES IN THE 20-25  
PERCENT RANGE. HOWEVER, DEEP LAYER FLOW AND THE SURFACE PRESSURE  
GRADIENT WILL BE MUCH WEAKER THAN ON WEDNESDAY AND SURFACE WINDS  
GENERALLY WILL BE LESS THAN 15 MPH. LOW ERC VALUES AND WEAK WINDS  
WILL NEGATE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS HERE. FURTHER EAST, STRONG SURFACE  
HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT EAST/NORTHEAST AND NORTHEASTERLY SURFACE  
WINDS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS PARTS OF NORTHERN FL INTO THE CENTRAL  
PANHANDLE. THIS WILL MAINTAIN LOWER RH VALUES IN THE 30-40 PERCENT  
RANGE AND CONTINUE TO REDUCE FUEL MOISTURE. HOWEVER, LIGHT WINDS AND  
LOW ERCS WILL LIMIT FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
