...SYNOPSIS...
A MIDLEVEL ANTICYCLONE WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY ELONGATED FROM NRN
NV TO NEAR THE FOUR CORNERS AREA. MODERATELY STRONG SELY MIDLEVEL
FLOW WILL EXIST ALONG ITS WRN PERIPHERY...CONTINUING TO ADVECT
SEASONABLY RICH MOISTURE N/NWWD ACROSS NRN CA AND SRN ORE. SCATTERED
WET TSTMS ARE FORECAST TO OCCUR ACROSS THE SIERRA INTO THE WRN GREAT
BASIN...AS WELL AS ACROSS NRN AZ INTO THE SRN/CNTRL ROCKIES. DRIER
AIR WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS MOST OF THE PAC NW AND
INTER-MOUNTAIN WEST...LIMITING TSTM POTENTIAL ACROSS THESE AREAS.

...NRN SIERRA/WRN GREAT BASIN/FAR SRN CASCADES...
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED TSTMS ARE EXPECTED DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING...PRIMARILY FOCUSED OVER HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS OF THE NRN
SIERRA/SRN CASCADES INTO THE WRN GREAT BASIN. PW VALUES WILL
GENERALLY EXCEED ONE INCH...WHICH WILL FAVOR PRIMARILY WET TSTMS.
HOWEVER...STRONG HEATING WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A DEEP/DRY-SUBCLOUD
LAYER...AND A FEW LIGHTNING IGNITIONS ARE POSSIBLE AWAY FROM THE
TSTM PRECIPITATION CORES.
