Valid 231200Z - 241200Z


In the mid levels, troughing is forecast to intensify over the
eastern US as ridging builds over the West Coast. Strong mid-level
flow will shift over the east as high pressure begins to move into
the central US. At the surface, a weak cold front will move offshore
with north/northwesterly winds likely behind it. While weaker winds
are expected over much of the CONUS, somewhat stronger flow is
possible in the lee of the Rockies over parts of the High Plains
this afternoon. Localized dry and breezy conditions may emerge
across portions of NE, CO, and KS. However, stronger winds will be
limited in overlap with dry fuels suggesting fire-weather concerns
will be limited for much of the country.
