   Valid 191200Z - 201200Z


   A vigorous mid-level system will accelerate south-southeastward
   along the California coast and carve out a longwave trough along the
   West Coast.  This will assist in forcing an initially cutoff low to
   open and eject northeastward toward southern Arizona/New Mexico
   through the end of the forecast period.  Additionally, surface
   cyclogenesis will occur across the western Great Basin through the
   evening, while another lee surface low materializes across the
   central High Plains through early Wednesday morning.

   Generally, though breezy conditions across the Great Basin will lead
   to locally elevated fire weather, these conditions should be
   localized and brief enough to preclude fire weather highlights,
   especially with clouds and showers related to an upstream system
   limiting boundary-layer mixing.  Localized elevated conditions may
   also exist for a couple hours along the immediate Colorado Front
   Range as well.
