...SYNOPSIS...
THE UPPER-AIR PATTERN REMAINS IN PLACE WITH AN ERN U.S. TROUGH AND A
RIDGE OVER THE WEST EXTENDING INTO THE NRN ROCKIES.  WEAK CYCLONIC
FLOW WILL COVER WASHINGTON AND OREGON...ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE
UPPER RIDGE.  MONSOONAL MOISTURE UNDER THE UPPER RIDGE COVERS MUCH
OF THE WEST AND WILL PRODUCE SCATTERED MAINLY AFTERNOON/EARLY
EVENING THUNDERSTORMS.  MOST STORMS WILL PRODUCE WETTING RAINS.

...NERN CA...NWRN NV...S-CNTRL AND ERN OREGON AND CNTRL ID...
THE AREA WITHIN THE ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORM AREA IS LIKELY TO HAVE
A MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS.  OVERALL CONDITIONS ARE SIMILAR
TO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.  FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW A DEEP DRY MIXED
LAYER AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT DO FORM WILL HAVE HIGH CLOUD BASES AND
A BETTER CHANCE FOR THE RAINFALL TO EVAPORATE BEFORE REACHING THE
GROUND.  FUELS REMAIN DRY ACROSS THE AREA AND IT WILL BE WARM WITH
HIGHS MOSTLY IN THE 80S AND SURFACE HUMIDITY FROM 15 TO 20 PERCENT.
SOME OF THE STORMS MAY ALSO PRODUCE STRONG AND ERRATIC OUTFLOW
WINDS.
