...SYNOPSIS...
WITHIN A BROADER UPPER LEVEL CYCLONIC CIRCULATION OVER WRN
CANADA...A SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE SEWD FROM OFF THE BRITISH
COLUMBIA COAST TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST THROUGH THE D2/TUE PERIOD.
SWLY MID-LEVEL FLOW WILL CONTINUE OVER PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN
AND NRN ROCKIES BETWEEN THIS TROUGH AND UPPER RIDGING THAT SHOULD
REMAIN OVER MUCH OF THE DESERT SOUTHWEST AND CNTRL/ERN CONUS. SOME
OF THE STRONGER WINDS AT MID LEVELS COULD BE PROMOTED TO THE SFC TUE
AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST...GREAT BASIN...
AND NRN ROCKIES WITH DIURNAL HEATING/MIXING OF THE BOUNDARY LAYER.
HOWEVER...AT THIS TIME THERE IS NOT A SUFFICIENT SPATIAL/TEMPORAL
OVERLAP OF FORECAST STRONG WINDS WITH LOWERED RH VALUES TO JUSTIFY
AN ELEVATED AREA.
