...SYNOPSIS...
THE BROAD UPPER TROUGH IN THE EAST REMAINS THROUGH FRIDAY ALTHOUGH
IT BEGINS TO WEAKEN AS THE MAIN UPPER LOW IN SERN CANADA LIFTS OUT
TO THE NORTHEAST.  THE RIDGE IN THE WEST GENERALLY HOLDS IN PLACE AS
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES INTO THE WA/OREGON COAST BY LATE IN
THE PERIOD.  THE ADVANCING UPPER DISTURBANCE WILL SLIGHTLY INCREASE
THE NWD STORM MOTION COMPARED TO THURSDAY AS S/SWLY WINDS INCREASE.

...CNTRL/ERN OREGON...CNTRL/ERN WA...NRN ID...
ANOTHER MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE
AREA ON FRIDAY AS MARGINAL MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY IS DRAWN NWD

AREAS IN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS...FUELS HAVE CONTINUED TO DRY OUT.
HIGHS ARE EXPECTED IN THE 80S AND 90S WITH SURFACE HUMIDITY FROM 15
TO 25 PERCENT.  PW IS FORECAST TO REMAIN GENERALLY AROUND 0.75 INCH

AIR IN THE LOWER LEVELS AIDING IN EVAPORATION OF ANY RAIN THAT DOES
DEVELOP.
