   Valid 241200Z - 301200Z

   Cyclonic flow will persist east of the Rockies for much of the Day
   3-8 period. Meanwhile, an upper ridge will be maintained across the
   western states until the later portion of the forecast period. While
   some periods of breezy and dry conditions will develop over portions
   of the Plains, areas of precipitation and ongoing green-up of fuels
   will largely mitigate any widespread fire weather concerns.
