.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0220 AM CDT SUN JUL 05 2015/

...SYNOPSIS...
...SOUTHERN ORE/NORTHERN CA...

NOT MUCH WILL CHANGE IN THE OVERALL UPPER PATTERN FROM DAY 1/SUNDAY.
THE MAIN FIRE WEATHER CONCERN WILL STILL BE ACROSS PARTS OF THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST FROM SOUTHERN ORE INTO NORTHERN CA WHERE
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED. PW VALUES FROM 0.75-1.00 INCHES WILL BE
MAINTAINED...RESULTING IN WETTING RAINS IN THE MAIN CORE OF
THUNDERSTORMS. THE MAIN CONCERN WILL BE FROM LIGHTING STRIKES
OUTSIDE OF THE MAIN RAIN CORES WHERE LITTLE TO NO RAINFALL WILL
OCCUR AND LIGHTNING STRIKES COULD IGNITE NEW FIRES GIVEN DRY FUELS.
FURTHERMORE...INVERTED-V FORECAST SOUNDINGS INDICATE GUSTY AND
ERRATIC OUTFLOW WINDS WILL POSE A THREAT TO ONGOING FIRES. GIVEN THE
WET NATURE OF THE THUNDERSTORMS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF STRIKES AWAY
FROM THE MAIN RAIN CORE...AN ISOLATED DRY THUNDER THREAT WILL
PERSIST ON MONDAY.
