   Valid 071200Z - 131200Z

   An expansive large-scale ridge will gradually build westward over
   the Rockies into the Great Basin, while midlevel troughing persists
   over the Pacific Northwest until around Day 6/Sunday. Between these
   features, enhanced southwesterly flow aloft will continue over the
   Intermountain West, with a series of embedded jet streaks crossing
   the area. 

   As the enhanced southwesterly flow overspreads a diurnally-deepening
   boundary layer over the Great Basin into the central Rockies each
   afternoon, elevated fire-weather conditions will be possible where
   fuels are receptive to wildfire spread. This will especially be the
   case on Days 4-5/Friday-Saturday over far northeast CA, NV, UT, and
   western WY -- where fuels are generally supportive of large-fire
   spread. With that said, confidence in the development of any more
   than spotty/localized critical conditions across these areas is
   limited owing to the lack of a tighter surface pressure gradient and
   stronger flow aloft -- precluding Critical probabilities at this

   Over the southern Plains, hot/dry conditions and limited
   precipitation will yield continued drying of fine fuels into next
   week. These conditions, coupled with periods of breezy southerly
   surface winds aided by lee troughing could support locally elevated
   conditions -- particularly along and west of I-35 in OK and TX each
