   Valid 171200Z - 181200Z


   Another round of weak lee troughing will occur over the southern
   High Plains today ahead of a strengthening shortwave trough over the
   southwestern states. This will result in continued dry conditions
   across eastern NM into the TX Panhandle with RH values in the 20-25
   percent range. However, deep layer flow and the surface pressure
   gradient will be much weaker than on Wednesday and surface winds
   generally will be less than 15 mph. Low ERC values and weak winds
   will negate fire weather concerns here. Further east, strong surface
   high pressure will shift east/northeast and northeasterly surface
   winds will continue across parts of northern FL into the central
   Panhandle. This will maintain lower RH values in the 30-40 percent
   range and continue to reduce fuel moisture. However, light winds and
   low ERCs will limit fire weather concerns.
