   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0227 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017/

   ...Synopsis...
   A deep-layer cyclone is expected to move slowly eastward into the
   northern Great Lakes today, as an embedded surface low over the
   Midwest moves northeastward and eventually becomes absorbed into the
   larger circulation. Meanwhile, an upper ridge is expected to remain
   in place across much of the West. Cooler and less windy conditions
   are expected across portions of the Southwest and southern High
   Plains in the wake of a cold front, as a surface ridge becomes
   established across the area. 

   ...Central/eastern Montana and adjacent northern High Plains
   region...
   Elevated to potentially critical fire weather conditions are
   expected across portions of central into eastern MT this afternoon,
   within a dry and windy post-frontal regime. Sustained northwesterly 
   winds of 20-30 mph with higher gusts are expected as the pressure
   gradient between the low near the upper Great Lakes and a surface
   ridge to the west increases during the day. Meanwhile, confidence
   has increased in sufficient warming and mixing to result in
   critically low RH across portions of eastern MT. A critical area has
   been introduced where confidence is highest in the concurrence of
   critical wind speeds and RH. Elevated conditions will surround the
   critical across portions of eastern MT and perhaps extending into
   northeast WY and western SD.
