DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0350 AM CDT SUN AUG 02 2015

VALID 031200Z - 041200Z

...SYNOPSIS...
AN UPPER TROUGH OVER THE GREAT BASIN AT THE START OF THE PERIOD IS
EXPECTED TO PROGRESS NEWD ON TUESDAY...RESULTING IN A CONTINUED
DAMPENING OF THE UPPER RIDGE TO ITS EAST AND SOMEWHAT COOLER
CONDITIONS ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHWEST COMPARED TO PREVIOUS DAYS. A
MIX OF DRY AND WET THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED IN ADVANCE OF THE
TROUGH ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN/PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO THE
NRN ROCKIES.

...PORTIONS OF THE INTERIOR NW...GREAT BASIN...NRN ROCKIES...
SUFFICIENT MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY AHEAD OF THE ADVANCING UPPER
TROUGH WILL SUPPORT SCATTERED TSTMS FROM ORE/FAR NRN CA EWD INTO
ID/NRN NV/WRN MT. PW VALUES GENERALLY IN THE 0.75 - 1 INCH RANGE
WILL SUPPORT SOME LOCALLY WETTING RAINFALL...BUT A THREAT FOR
ISOLATED DRY TSTMS WILL ALSO EXIST...PARTICULARLY NEAR PEAK HEATING
AS SUBCLOUD LAYERS DEEPEN AND DRY OUT. LTG STRIKES AWAY FROM THE
HEAVIEST RAIN CORES WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO POSE A THREAT...GIVEN THE
AVAILABILITY OF DRY FUELS ACROSS THE AREA.
