   Valid 131200Z - 141200Z


   Forecast remains on track. Strong post-frontal winds across the
   southeast Colorado/southwestern Kansas vicinity may lead to elevated
   fire weather conditions for a brief time as RH falls perhaps below
   25%. Current model comparison with surface observations shows models
   may have a warm/dry bias. With uncertainty regarding duration of
   possible elevated conditions, will refrain from adding highlights.

   An upper-level shortwave trough is forecast to move across the
   central Rockies/Plains through northwesterly flow aloft on
   Wednesday, acting to reinforce troughing over the eastern CONUS.  In
   response at the surface, a weak surface low pressure system with an
   associated cold front will move southeastward across the Plains on

   Overall, fire weather concerns are expected to remain relatively low
   on Wednesday, as winds should remain weak over Southern California
   despite continued dry conditions.  Portions of the central/southern
   High Plains may see strong northerly winds behind the aforementioned
   "cold" front coupled with RH values below 25%, but conditions are
   too uncertain/marginal to highlight an area at this time.
