   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0331 AM CDT THU JUN 30 2016/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   WEAK/BROAD MID-LEVEL TROUGHING WILL EXIST ACROSS CALIFORNIA...THE
   DESERT SOUTHWEST...AND THE GREAT BASIN...IN RESPONSE TO A PAIR OF
   WEAK IMPULSES MEANDERING AROUND THE REGION. FARTHER NORTH...AS A
   SHORTWAVE TROUGH SLOWLY SHIFTS EASTWARD ACROSS ALBERTA/SASKATCHEWAN
   AND MONTANA...SUBTLE HEIGHT RISES WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE NORTHERN
   ROCKIES ON FRIDAY. FARTHER EAST...CYCLONIC FLOW WILL REMAIN
   ESTABLISHED ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES AND NORTHEAST. 

   ...NORTHERN GREAT BASIN...
   AS WEAK TROUGHING AND RELATIVELY COOLER TEMPS ALOFT WILL EXIST OVER
   THE REGION ON FRIDAY...ANOTHER ROUND OF TERRAIN-ENHANCED
   THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED. PW VALUES AROUND 0.6-0.8
   INCHES AND INVERTED-V LOW-LEVEL PROFILES WILL ONCE AGAIN FAVOR LIGHT
   PRECIPITATION CORES. IN TURN...ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS WILL
   REMAIN A THREAT ON FRIDAY...INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR FIRE
   IGNITION/SPREAD.

   ...INTERIOR PACIFIC NORTHWEST...
   MODESTLY ENHANCED WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE
   REGION...AS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE TROUGH APPROACHES THE COAST. WHILE
   MID-LEVEL MOISTURE WILL INCREASE CONSIDERABLY...DRY LOW-LEVEL AIR
   SHOULD PERSIST EAST OF THE CASCADES. DOWNSLOPE FLOW WILL REINFORCE
   LOW-LEVEL DRYING...SUCH THAT RH VALUES IN THE TEENS AND 20S
   MATERIALIZE. POCKETS OF BREEZY CONDITIONS /WITH SUSTAINED WINDS
   AROUND 15 MPH/ WILL DEVELOP AS WELL...AIDED BY LEE TROUGHING AND A
   MARGINALLY ENHANCED PRESSURE GRADIENT. AS SUCH...ELEVATED
   FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS SHOULD EXIST IN THE CASCADE GAPS AND WESTERN
   COLUMBIA BASIN.
