.DISCUSSION...The upper level flow is increasing from the southwest,
allowing moisture and instability to spread across central and northeast
Oregon today. Scattered thunderstorms will develop in these areas this
afternoon and evening. While storms will decrease in coverage overnight,
there will be isolated nocturnal thunderstorms in the eastern zones
after midnight. Meanwhile...a drier southwest flow is present across
eastern Washington and north central Oregon. Drier and more stable
air will spread eastward on Thursday, and only isolated thunderstorms
are expected in Wallowa County. A marine surge will cause winds to
increase in and around the Columbia Basin on Thursday.


***Thunderstorms imply strong gusty winds***
***Winds are 20 foot 10 minute averages***
***CWR-chance of wetting rain 0.10 or greater***
