NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0454 PM CDT FRI AUG 01 2014

VALID 031200Z - 091200Z

MULTIPLE MID/UPPER-LEVEL SHORTWAVE TROUGHS MOVING ACROSS THE WEST
WILL RESULT IN AN EWD SHIFT AND EVENTUAL BREAKDOWN OF THE WRN CONUS
RIDGE DURING THE EXTENDED PERIOD.  THE PRIMARY FIRE WEATHER CONCERN
DURING THE EXTENDED PERIOD WILL BE DRY THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL IN
ADVANCE OF THESE SHORTWAVE TROUGHS.  ON SUNDAY /D3/...AHEAD OF A
DISTURBANCE /AND ASSOCIATED MONSOONAL MOISTURE PLUME/ MOVING NWD
THROUGH THE CENTRAL GREAT BASIN...SOME POTENTIAL WILL EXIST FOR DRY
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS SERN ORE/FAR SWRN ID. BY MONDAY /D4/...THE
MOISTURE PLUME WILL PUSH NWD INTO THE NRN INTERMOUNTAIN WEST/ROCKIES
LEADING TO INCREASING THUNDERSTORM CHANCES/COVERAGE ACROSS MUCH OF
THE WEST...THOUGH THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE STORMS WILL BE WET.  BY
TUESDAY /D5/...THE MOISTURE PLUME WILL BE DEPARTING THE
INTERMOUNTAIN WEST AS ANOTHER DISTURBANCE APPROACHES THE CENTRAL CA
COAST FROM THE WEST.  AS A RESULT...THERE WILL LIKELY BE POTENTIAL
FOR DRY THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE SRN SIERRAS AND CENTRAL GREAT BASIN
ON TUESDAY /D5/...HOWEVER...PREDICTABILITY IS TOO LOW AT THIS TIME
TO INTRODUCE PROBABILITIES.
