   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0125 PM CDT SUN JUN 26 2016

   VALID 271200Z - 281200Z

   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...

   ...CASCADE RANGE OF CNTRL WA AND N-CNTRL ORE...
   A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP BY LATE AFTERNOON ACROSS THE CASCADE
   RANGE OF CNTRL WA AND N-CNTRL ORE. THIS WILL OCCUR AS WEAK FORCING
   FOR ASCENT ACCOMPANYING A SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING ONSHORE IS
   FAVORABLY TIMED WITH PEAK HEATING. RELATIVELY RICHER MOISTURE W OF
   THE HIGHER TERRAIN SHOULD FAVOR WET TSTMS INITIALLY...WHILE DRIER
   AIR REMAINS SITUATED ACROSS INTERIOR WA AND ORE. SOME POTENTIAL FOR
   DRY LIGHTNING MAY EXIST AS TSTMS APPROACH DRIER AIR E OF THE
   CASCADES...GIVEN STORM MOTIONS AROUND 20 MPH...BUT UNCERTAINTY
   REGARDING COVERAGE/SUSTENANCE OF TSTMS WILL PRECLUDE A ISOLATED DRY
   TSTM HIGHLIGHT ATTM.

   ..ROGERS.. 06/26/2016

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0258 AM CDT SUN JUN 26 2016/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WITHIN A REGIME OF MID-LEVEL CYCLONIC FLOW OVER THE GREAT LAKES...A
   SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL TRANSIT SOUTHEAST FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS TO
   MICHIGAN AND SOUTHERN ONTARIO DURING THE PERIOD. AS A RESULT...THE
   BROADER TROUGH WILL UNDERGO MODEST AMPLIFICATION ACROSS THE EASTERN
   CONUS. TO THE WEST...A MID-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE WILL FURTHER
   BUILD/EXPAND OVER THE GREAT BASIN...WITH EASTERLY FLOW TO ITS SOUTH
   TRANSPORTING MOISTURE ACROSS THE DESERT SOUTHWEST.

   WIDESPREAD AREAS OF GUSTY/STRONG WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED ACROSS THE
   WEST...WITH ANY ENHANCEMENT BEING LOCALIZED/TERRAIN DRIVEN. AS
   SUCH...LARGE-SCALE FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS SHOULD BE RELATIVELY LOW. A
   FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF THE PACIFIC
   NORTHWEST...BUT SUFFICIENT MOISTURE AND RELATIVELY LOW COVERAGE
   SHOULD TEMPER THE DRY-THUNDERSTORM THREAT. MEANWHILE...STORMS ACROSS
   THE DESERT SOUTHWEST SHOULD BE FAIRLY WET...DUE TO THE
   AFOREMENTIONED INFLUX OF MOISTURE ALOFT.
