   ...Southern and central High Plains...
   With upper-level high pressure centered over the central US, winds
   aloft are forecast to be weak across much of the Plains. While upper
   air support is minimal, a weak lee low developing across the central
   High Plains may bolster surface winds to near 15 mph through the
   afternoon and evening. Temperatures near 100F and surface RH below
   20% will support a hot and dry airmass atop dry fuels from ongoing
   drought. Thus, a few hours of locally elevated fire weather
   conditions will be possible.

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0143 AM CDT Sat Aug 13 2022/

   Overall upper ridging should still dominate the weather pattern
   across much of the western and central CONUS tomorrow/Sunday, though
   some weakening of the ridge is likely, with modest mid-level
   impulses expected to pivot around the upper ridge. Nonetheless,
   deep-layer forcing should remain weak across the CONUS (similar to
   Day 1), precluding widespread significant wildfire-spread threats,
   with some localized exceptions. Similar to Day 1, locally dry and
   breezy surface conditions may characterize the periphery of the
   upper ridge, from northern California, Pacific Northwest into the
   northern Rockies and Plains states. Like Day 1, monsoon-driven
   thunderstorms may occur again across the northern Rockies, where a
   couple of strikes away from storm cores into dry fuel beds and
   accompanying gusty winds may promote localized wildfire-start
