.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0102 AM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017/

...Synopsis...
Upper ridging will continue to amplify across much of the western
CONUS on Day 2/Monday as a weak upper low remains off the coast of
central/southern CA. Farther east, a shortwave trough will dig
southeastward from the Canadian Prairie provinces into the northern
Plains and Upper Midwest by Monday night. At the surface, a modest
increase in northerly post-frontal winds should occur across parts
of eastern MT into the western Dakotas Monday afternoon. However, RH
values are forecast to become only marginally lowered, and sustained
winds are not currently expected to be strong enough to warrant an
elevated delineation.
