Valid 181200Z - 191200Z


A broad mid-level cyclone, initially centered over the Great Lakes,
is forecast to shift slowly northeastward into southeastern Canada
through the forecast period. Accompanying the low, strong cyclonic
flow aloft will dominate the eastern half of the CONUS, while weak
ridging builds over the western US. At the surface, high pressure
within a post-frontal airmass will favor weaker surface winds and
much cooler temperatures over the central CONUS/Great Plains. With
higher humidity, cooler temperatures and weakening winds expected,
fire-weather concerns appear very low through D2/Saturday.
