HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL BUILD ACROSS THE AREA FOR TODAY AND
TOMORROW WITH AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
OVER THE MOUNTAINS.  LIGHTNING WILL BE THE MAIN THREAT.

A TROUGH WILL PASS TO THE NORTH THURSDAY WITH ZONAL WESTERLY
FLOW ALOFT DEVELOPING INTO THE WEEKEND.  INCREASED MOISTURE
AND INSTABILITY WILL LEAD TO MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY ACROSS THE REGION.  THUNDERSTORMS ARE
FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER THE MOUNTAINS...AND SPREAD EASTWARD
INTO THE PLAINS DURING THE EVENING HOURS.  WET CONDITIONS LOOK
TO CONTINUE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
