.DISCUSSION...
An upper level ridge of high pressure situated over the srn Great
Basin and an upper level trof of low pressure across the ecntrl and
ern states will persist through Saturday night, with the fcst area in
nw flow aloft, which is favorable for steering storms from sern CO
and nern NM into our area. Have gone with slgt chc to chc pops
tonight through Saturday night across most of the area. Some storms
durg this time period may become strong, with gusty winds and small
hail the primary hazards. In addition, heavy rainfall will likely
accompany the strongest storms, and may lead to localized flooding or
flash flooding.

The upper level ridge of high pressure is then progged to expand
north and east again beginning Sunday and continuing thru the middle
of next week. This will result in a general drying trend with any
threat for showers and tstms confined to mainly wrn zones by next
Tuesday and Wednesday. Numerical weather models are in general
agreement with the overall upper air pattern and were accepted.
