   Valid 231200Z - 291200Z

   A strong upper-level jet will approach the Pacific Northwest on
   Friday and overspread the northern Rockies and northern Great Basin
   over the weekend. This will lead to dry and windy conditions across
   portions of this region. An upper-level ridge will build over the
   western CONUS by early next week which will lead to hot and dry
   conditions for much of the Inter-Mountain West.

   ...D4-5/Sat-Sun/ Portions of the Great Basin into northern Colorado
   and southern Wyoming...
   Mid-level winds are expected to increase from 35 to 40 mph on
   Saturday to over 50 mph on Sunday from the Pacific Northwest into
   the northern Rockies. Where these strong winds overlap dry and
   deeply mixed surface conditions across eastern Idaho and southern
   Wyoming, critical fire weather conditions are likely. Critical winds
   are expected across this region Saturday and Sunday, but the
   strongest winds, and thus greatest fire weather concern, will be on
   Sunday. Fuels should be plenty receptive to fire spread with ERCs
   exceeding the 90th percentile in much of this region with several
   days of dry weather expected for the remainder of this week.
