RH VALUES AROUND 20-25 PERCENT AS TEMPERATURES WARM INTO THE

...SYNOPSIS...
BROAD CYCLONIC FLOW WILL PERSIST FROM THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS
EASTWARD TO THE MID-ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST AROUND THE BASE OF A
LONGWAVE TROUGH CENTERED OVER HUDSON BAY.  AN UPPER RIDGE WILL
REMAIN ANCHORED OVER THE SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS...WITH A RIDGE AXIS
EXTENDING NORTHWESTWARD TOWARD THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.  THIS OVERALL
FLOW PATTERN WILL LEAD TO RELATIVELY LIGHT FLOW ALOFT AND AT THE
SURFACE IN MANY DRY AREAS OF THE WEST.  A GRADUAL INCREASE IN
MID-LEVEL MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL OCCUR THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED UPPER
RIDGE...LEADING TO PRIMARILY WETTING THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF
SOUTHERN/CENTRAL CALIFORNIA THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

THE AFOREMENTIONED LIGHT FLOW AND WETTING CHARACTER OF THUNDERSTORMS
NEAR DRY AREAS WILL LIMIT LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
