   ...Synopsis...
   Dual mid-level shortwave troughs (and associated surface lows) will
   traverse the southeast and southwest CONUS, respectively, throughout
   the period. Cooler temperatures will prevail across the northern
   two-thirds of the CONUS, with mild temperatures likely across the
   southern CONUS. 

   While a favorable overlap of surface meteorological conditions and
   receptive fuels to support large wildfire growth appears unlikely, a
   few locations may support localized fire starts. The first area
   would be southern California into the Lower Colorado River Basin.
   Here, a mid-level jet will overlap a surface pressure gradient with
   associated strong northerly flow. During the afternoon, a well-mixed
   boundary layer will help transport the stronger flow aloft to the
   surface, and provide ample mixing to promote 20% RH. Northerly
   sustained surface winds may exceed 30 mph at times. Localized fire
   spreads are possible wherever the aforementioned surface conditions
   can coincide with receptive fine fuels.

   Elsewhere, 20% RH and southerly surface winds approaching 15 mph are
   possible by afternoon peak heating across portions of the Texas Big
   Bend area. However, the localized, brief nature of these conditions,
   combined with marginally receptive fine fuels, preclude an elevated
   delineation.
