   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   NO CHANGES TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST ARE REQUIRED. SPOTTY/LOCALLY
   ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS FAR NE NM/NW TX PANHANDLE/W
   OK PANHANDLE/FAR SE CO...AS SFC TROUGHING IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES
   AND BREEZY W/SW WINDS DEVELOP. ADDITIONALLY...DIURNAL MIXING AND
   DOWNSLOPE FLOW WILL RESULT IN RELATIVELY LOW RH VALUES. AS
   SUCH...SPOTTY ELEVATED CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE FOR A FEW HOURS THIS
   AFTERNOON. HOWEVER...WHILE FINER FUELS WILL CONTINUE TO DRY...THE
   RELATIVELY LOCALIZED NATURE OF ELEVATED CONDITIONS AND THE LACK OF
   WARMER TEMPERATURES PRECLUDE A DELINEATION.

   THE SRN SHORTWAVE TROUGH WHILE ALSO SHIFTING EWD OFF THE ATLANTIC
   COAST TONIGHT. 

   SFC LEE TROUGHING WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP TO THE E OF THE ROCKIES
   AHEAD OF BOTH UPPER-LEVEL TROUGHS. RESULTING GUSTY WLY WINDS MAY
