   VALID 291700Z - 301200Z

   NO CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE ONGOING FORECAST.

   ..COHEN.. 07/29/2014

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0329 AM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER AIR PATTERN REMAINS UNCHANGED WITH THE TROUGH IN THE EAST
   AND A RIDGE IN THE WEST.  WEAK SWLY FLOW WILL COVER THE OREGON AND
   WASHINGTON AREA WITH A MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS THIS
   AFTERNOON INTO EVENING.  GIVEN THE DRY FUELS AND THAT SOME OF THE
   STORMS MAY BE DRY...AN ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORM AREA WILL COVER
   PARTS OF THE NW.

   ...S-CNTRL AND SERN OREGON...NRN CA AND NWRN NV...
   WHILE MOISTURE HAS INCREASED A LITTLE IN THE PACIFIC NW...PW VALUES
   WILL REMAIN RELATIVELY LOW...AROUND 0.75 INCH.  SOME STORMS IN THE
   AREA WILL PRODUCE WETTING RAINS...ESPECIALLY WITH SLOW STORM MOTION
   DUE TO LIGHT WINDS.  HOWEVER...WITH VERY DRY FUELS AND GIVEN THE
   MARGINAL AMOUNT OF MOISTURE WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S TO LOW 90S WITH
   SURFACE HUMIDITY FROM 15 TO 20 PERCENT...SOME OF THE STORMS MAY
   PRODUCE VERY LITTLE WETTING RAINS.  IN ADDITION...LIGHTNING OUTSIDE
   OF RAIN CORES MAY CAUSE NEW IGNITIONS.

   ELSEWHERE...STORMS WITH MAINLY WETTING RAINS ARE EXPECTED OVER MUCH
   OF THE WEST WHERE MOISTURE VALUES ARE HIGHER.
