...SYNOPSIS...
ON WEDNESDAY...AN UPPER TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO POSITION JUST OFF THE
NRN CA/OREGON COAST AS THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE WEST SHIFTS EWD.

THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ODILE WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD HIGHER
HUMIDITY OVER SRN CA AND INTO THE SW ALONG WITH INCREASING CHANCES
OF RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS.

...NERN CA...NWRN NV AND S-CNTRL/SERN OREGON...
SIMILAR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE AREA AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY WITH
SWLY WINDS 15 TO 25 MPH AND HIGHER GUSTS ALONG WITH HUMIDITY FROM 15
TO 20 PERCENT AND HIGHS IN THE 70S AND 80S.  WITHIN THE ELEVATED
AREA...SOME AREAS WILL SEE HIGHER WINDS THAN ON TUESDAY...LEADING TO
NEAR CRITICAL CONDITIONS.  HOWEVER...AT THIS TIME...THE LOWEST
HUMIDITY AND STRONGEST WINDS MAY NOT COINCIDE SO WILL ONLY CALL FOR
ELEVATED CONDITIONS.

A MIX OF WET AND A FEW DRY THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE POSSIBLE ACROSS FAR
NWRN CA...WRN OREGON WITH THE UPPER TROUGH.  ALSO...A MIX OF SOME
WET AND DRY STORMS FROM CNTRL NV...NWD INTO CNTRL ID/WRN MT ARE ALSO
POSSIBLE.  CONFIDENCE IN ANY PARTICULAR AREA...ESPECIALLY FOR DRY
THUNDERSTORMS...REMAINS LOW AT THIS TIME.
