...SYNOPSIS...
Although cold surface ridging will remain prominent across most
areas east of the Rockies through this period, mid/upper flow has
trended more zonal within a belt from the mid-latitude eastern
Pacific through the Mid Atlantic Coast and western Atlantic. One
significant, but increasingly deformed/sheared impulse within this
regime will begin developing inland across the Pacific Northwest
coast later today.  Associated pockets of colder air aloft and
large-scale forcing for ascent, in conjunction with relatively moist
low-level onshore flow, are expected to contribute to convective
development occasionally capable of generating lightning, mainly
west of the Washington Cascades.  Otherwise, thunderstorm
probabilities elsewhere across the U.S. appear negligible.
