   VALID 011200Z - 021200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   BROAD UPPER RIDGE WILL ENCOMPASS MUCH OF THE LOWER 48...WITH
   MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUING TO STREAM NWD ACROSS THE SW
   STATES/INTERMOUNTAIN REGION. ON THE PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE...UPPER
   TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL TRANSITION EWD OVER THE
   PACIFIC NORTHWEST THROUGH TONIGHT.
   
   ...ORE/ERN WA/ID/MT...
   ALONG AND AHEAD OF EWD MOVING UPPER TROUGH/COLD FRONT...SCATTERED
   TSTMS WILL BE COMMON TODAY/TONIGHT ACROSS THE NRN INTERMOUNTAIN
   REGION AND MUCH OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. ALTHOUGH ISOLD DRY TSTMS
   ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS ERN ORE/ERN WA INTO NRN ID/MT ON NRN FRINGE OF
   GREATER MONSOONAL MOISTURE...SUFFICIENTLY HIGH PRECIPITABLE WATER
   VALUES/STORM MOTIONS WILL TEND TO GENERALLY FAVOR WETTING RAINS. A
   FEW LIGHTNING IGNITIONS ARE NEVERTHELESS POSSIBLE...AS WELL AS
   LOCALLY GUSTY/ERRATIC WINDS IN VICINITY OF TSTMS...HOWEVER
   CONDITIONS APPEAR TOO MARGINAL TO WARRANT A CRITICAL DRY TSTM
   OUTLOOK. BROAD SCALE WINDS WILL INCREASE/SHIFT IN ASSOCIATION WITH
   THE COLD FRONT...ALTHOUGH MODEST WIND SPEEDS/MINIMUM RH VALUES
   SHOULD OTHERWISE LIMIT CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS.
