THE UPPER TROUGH OVER THE NORTHERN ROCKIES WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK
EASTWARD ON SUNDAY. ANOTHER SHORTWAVE WILL APPROACH THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST COAST BY 12Z MONDAY AND THIS WILL LEAD TO CONTINUED

OF NORTHERN NV INTO SOUTHERN/EASTERN ID AND SOUTHWEST MT. W/NW WINDS

FALL INTO THE 10-20 PERCENT RANGE. ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS ALSO
WILL BE POSSIBLE FROM PARTS OF EASTERN NV THROUGH NORTHERN
UT/EASTERN ID AND INTO WESTERN WY AND SOUTH-CENTRAL MT. PW VALUES
WILL GENERALLY BE LESS THAN 0.75 IN...EXCEPT ACROSS UT WHERE THEY
MAY BE A BIT HIGHER...AND INVERTED-V THERMODYNAMIC PROFILES WILL
PROHIBIT MUCH IN THE WAY OF WETTING RAINS. THIS WILL LEAD TO THREAT
OF LIGHTNING IGNITIONS GIVEN DRY FUELS.
