...PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL ROCKIES...
THE ONGOING ISOLATED DRY-THUNDER AREA IS EXPANDED WESTWARD SLIGHTLY
ACROSS CENTRAL ID AND SOUTHWARD ACROSS UT/CO...BUT NO MAJOR CHANGES
ARE MADE. ADDITIONALLY...THE AREA IS CONTRACTED SLIGHTLY TO REMOVE
PARTS OF EASTERN ID...WHERE PW VALUES CURRENTLY APPEAR TOO LOW /I.E.
LESS THAN 0.5 INCHES/ TO SUPPORT A SUFFICIENT COVERAGE OF DRY
THUNDERSTORMS.

...SYNOPSIS...
ANOTHER WEAK UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE MIGRATING THROUGH WESTERLY
MID/UPPER LEVEL FLOW WILL TRACK ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES ON
TUESDAY...AND THE OVERALL PATTERN WILL BE SIMILAR TO THAT ON DAY
1/MONDAY. ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE POSSIBLE
FROM SOUTHWEST MT AND ADJACENT PORTIONS OF FAR EASTERN ID INTO
WESTERN WY AND FAR NORTHEAST UT WHERE PW VALUES WILL REMAIN BELOW
0.75 INCHES. FUEL BEDS WILL CONTINUE TO DRY AS HOT TEMPERATURES AND
LOW RH VALUES PERSIST...AND LIGHTNING STRIKES COULD POSE A RISK FOR
FIRE STARTS. ELSEWHERE...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE NOT EXPECTED.
