VALID 291200Z - 301200Z

...SYNOPSIS...
...PORTIONS OF THE GREAT BASIN TO THE SIERRA MOUNTAINS...

MIDLEVEL MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY INCREASE NORTHWARD ACROSS PARTS OF THE
WESTERN GREAT BASIN BENEATH LARGER-SCALE UPPER ANTICYCLONE CENTERED
OVER NORTHERN AZ. WEAK IMPULSES MIGRATING THROUGH UPPER FLOW WILL BE
SUFFICIENT TO TRIGGER ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. PW VALUES WILL BE
LOW...GENERALLY LESS THAN 0.75 INCHES. WEAK DEEP LAYER FLOW WILL
RESULT IN SLOW STORM MOTION...BUT INVERTED-V SUB-CLOUD THERMODYNAMIC
PROFILES WILL LIMIT WETTING RAINS. GIVEN VERY DRY FUELS ACROSS THE
REGION...THUNDERSTORMS WILL POSE A RISK FOR LIGHTNING IGNITIONS.
