...SYNOPSIS...
EARLY-MORNING WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES A MID-LEVEL CYCLONE
CENTERED NEAR THE COAST OF SRN CA. THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY
DRIFT EWD AS A TROUGH IS REINFORCED TO ITS N ACROSS THE NW CONUS. A
RIDGE DOWNSTREAM WILL EXTEND NWD FROM AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER
THE SERN CONUS ACROSS PARTS OF THE ERN PLAINS AND MS VALLEY...WHILE
CYCLONIC FLOW OVERLIES PORTIONS OF THE NORTHEAST. THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS OF THE WRN CONUS...LOCALLY ENHANCED IN
PROXIMITY TO THE AFOREMENTIONED CYCLONE FROM THE COASTAL RANGES OF
SRN CA TO THE LOWER CO RIVER VALLEY AND VICINITY. HOWEVER...PW
VALUES AND LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ARE EXPECTED TO BE SUFFICIENTLY ROBUST
TO LIMIT THE RISK FOR PURELY DRY THUNDERSTORMS...WITH MOST STORMS
YIELDING WETTING RAINS. FURTHERMORE...STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED
TO OVERLAP WITH LOW SFC RH ACROSS THE CONUS. FOR THESE
REASONS...FIRE-WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE NOT BEEN INCLUDED.
