   ...Synopsis...
   An amplified mid-level flow pattern is forecast across the CONUS
   through the Day1 forecast period. A broad cyclonic trough is
   forecast to be centered over the Ohio Valley while a ridge of high
   pressure builds across the Intermountain West. At the surface, a
   cold front will slowly make its way off the eastern coast of the US
   while a large are of high pressure is expected to remain stationary
   across the central Rockies/Plains. With mid-level synoptic flow
   displaced from much of the warmer and drier conditions across the
   CONUS, little overlap of fire weather conditions is expected.
   Localized gusty downslope winds across northern New Mexico may
   support locally elevated fire weather potential this afternoon and
   evening. However, above average fuel moisture from recent
   precipitation should limit the threat.
