    Recent high resolution guidance indicates lingering offshore flow
    across portions of the San Diego County Mountains through mid-day,
    with terrain-favored areas experiencing gusts to 20 mph.  This will
    result in locally elevated fire-weather conditions, though surface
    winds may not exceed elevated thresholds in a widespread-enough
    basis for an elevated delineation.
    
    Farther north, areas of eastern Montana will experience breezy
    westerly surface flow and sub-20% RH values at times during the
    afternoon.  Snowpack is evident on satellite imagery, however, which
    may limit drying of fuels despite the dry near-surface airmass. 
    Locally elevated fire-weather is possible where fuels are dry.

    ...Synopsis...
    On Monday, surface high pressure is expected to dominate much of the
    western CONUS into the northern Plains, bringing mostly light winds
    and cool temperatures. Therefore, fire weather concerns will be
    minimal.
