A mid-level shortwave trough and jet streak will intensify as they
eject eastward into the Great Lakes through Day2/Friday. At the
surface, a cold front will continue southward toward the Gulf of
Mexico, bringing well below average temperatures to much of the
central CONUS. The cooler air and increase in precipitation will
keep the fire weather threat low through the forecast period. 

Northeasterly low-level flow will linger through the early morning
hours as pressure gradients gradually relax. With poor overnight
humidity recoveries near 30% forecast, elevated and locally critical
fire weather conditions may persist until sunrise. There after,
winds are forecast to decrease below elevated criteria, keeping fire
weather concerns low. Locally elevated conditions may remain where
terrain-enhanced winds and heavy fuel loads coexist.
