The slow-moving midlevel low centered over northern CA is forecast
to begin ejecting northeast today, though otherwise the pattern will
change little compared to previous days, with an upper ridge
persisting across the Southwest into the southern Plains. A weak
surface ridge will settle into portions of the central and northern
Plains in the wake of a cold front, resulting in light winds and
slightly cooler conditions.

...OR/Northern CA eastward into southern MT...
Scattered thunderstorms are expected over many of the same areas
that have been affected on previous days, in advance of the
persistent midlevel low over northern CA. Thermodynamic profiles
will may be slightly cooler and more moist compared to previous
days, due to the cumulative effects of repeated rounds of
convection. However, widespread wetting rainfall is not anticipated,
and some threat for lightning-related ignitions will continue where
dry fuels remain across the region. As a result, the dry
thunderstorm area is maintained across the area with only minor
