...SYNOPSIS...
A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO APPROACH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
COAST...WITH INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT OVERSPREADING THE
REGION. A CENTRAL-CONUS RIDGE WILL FAIL TO MOVE MUCH DURING THE
PERIOD...AS A STALLED MID-LEVEL LOW SLOWLY MEANDERS NEAR THE
LOWER/MID OH VALLEY.

...PORTIONS OF THE FAR NORTHWEST GREAT BASIN...
AS STRENGTHENING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW SPREADS ACROSS THE
REGION...BREEZY CONDITIONS SHOULD MATERIALIZE DURING THE DAY. DEEP
DIURNAL MIXING WILL ENCOURAGE DOWNWARD TRANSFER OF STRONGER FLOW
ALOFT...RESULTING IN SUSTAINED WINDS AROUND 15-20 MPH.
MOREOVER...SUCH MIXING AMIDST A DRY BOUNDARY LAYER WILL ALLOW RH
VALUES TO FALL TO NEAR 15-20 PERCENT. WITH DRY FUELS AVAILABLE
ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION...THESE METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS WILL
SUPPORT ELEVATED FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS ON THURSDAY.
