NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PENDLETON OR
813 AM PDT TUE JUL 29 2014

...ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS IN CENTRAL OREGON TODAY...INCREASING
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEK...

.DISCUSSION...CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE WARM AND DRY AS A RIDGE
OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION. HIGH LEVEL MONSOON
MOISTURE IS MOVING INTO THE AREA AND THERE COULD BE ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS IN CENTRAL OREGON TODAY. EACH DAY THIS WEEK...SHOWER
AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE AND SPREAD NORTH AND EAST
AS SEVERAL WEAK DISTURBANCES INTERACT WITH THE MONSOON FLOW.
HOWEVER...THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD MOSTLY STAY SOUTH OF THE WASHINGTON
BORDER UNTIL FRIDAY. ANY STORMS THAT DEVELOP WILL INITIALLY HAVE
LIMITED PRECIPITATION SO WILL MONITOR STORM DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS
MODEL CONSISTENCY TO DETERMINE IF ANY RED FLAG WARNINGS WILL NEED
TO BE ISSUED IN THE COMING DAYS.
