A progressive mid/upper shortwave trough will track eastward from the northern Rockies to the Upper Midwest today and tonight. This will lead to enhanced deep layer westerlies across the central and northern Rockies and induce lee trough development across the High Plains. A surface cold front also will track east/southeast across the northern and central Plains, becoming positioned from the upper Great Lakes to western north Texas by Wednesday morning. Dry downslope winds and low RH values will overspread much of the southern and central High Plains from eastern NM into southeast WY. Wind speeds generally will be light except near the central mountains of NM and the Laramie Range in WY where breezier conditions are anticipated. Some local/brief elevated fire weather conditions are possible in these locations, though a widespread, longer-duration threat is not expected. ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product...
