.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0216 AM CDT THU JUL 10 2014/

...SYNOPSIS...
THE PRINCIPAL BELT OF ENHANCED WLYS IN THE MID LEVELS WILL EXTEND
ACROSS THE NWRN/N-CNTRL STATES TO THE N OF A FLAT RIDGE COVERING THE
WRN/S-CNTRL STATES...WHILE CYCLONIC FLOW PERSISTS ACROSS THE EAST.
THIS OVERALL PATTERN WILL MAINTAIN THE DISPLACEMENT OF STRONG SFC
WINDS TO THE N OF CRITICALLY LOW SFC RH. MEANWHILE...MONSOONAL
MOISTURE WILL BE MAINTAINED OVER PARTS OF THE WRN STATES...WHICH
WILL YIELD AREAS OF THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY FROM PORTIONS OF THE
SOUTHWEST TO THE CNTRL/NRN GREAT BASIN. A MID-LEVEL CYCLONIC
PERTURBATION OFF THE COAST OF CA PER WATER VAPOR IMAGERY WILL
CONTINUE TO PROGRESS NEWD TOWARD THE COAST...POTENTIALLY ENCOURAGING
STORM DEVELOPMENT DOWNSTREAM ACROSS PARTS OF ORE AND NRN CA.
HOWEVER...WITH PW VALUES GENERALLY IN EXCESS OF 0.8 INCH WHERE
STORMS OCCUR...AND WITH MOSTLY SLOW STORM MOTIONS...MIXED WET/DRY
AND WET THUNDERSTORM MODES ARE EXPECTED TO ENSUE...AS OPPOSED TO A
DRY THUNDERSTORM MODE. AS SUCH...FIRE WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS HAVE NOT
BEEN INCLUDED.
