.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1147 PM CST Sun Mar 03 2024/

Moderate west-southwesterly midlevel flow will persist across the
southern High Plains -- along the southern periphery of the primary
mid/upper-level jet extending across the central Rockies and
adjacent Plains. Related downslope flow off the southern Rockies
will result in 15-20 percent minimum RH across the southern High
Plains, where a modest surface pressure gradient will yield 15-20
mph sustained westerly surface winds. Given dry/receptive fuels
across the area, low-end elevated fire-weather conditions are
expected across parts of eastern NM into West TX. 

Farther north, a broad/weak elongated surface low will drift slowly
northeastward from the central/southern Plains into the Midwest. On
the backside of this feature, locally dry/breezy post-frontal
conditions could support a brief period of elevated fire-weather
conditions across parts of KS, where fuels have become increasingly
dry. However, these conditions appear too brief/localized for an
Elevated area at this time.
