   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0204 AM CDT SUN JUL 02 2006
   
   VALID 021200Z - 031200Z
   
   ...NO CRITICAL AREAS...
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   UPPER RIDGING WILL REMAIN PREVALENT ACROSS THE WESTERN
   STATES/ROCKIES...WITH AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS
   MUCH OF THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST. FURTHER EAST...UPPER TROUGH WILL
   PERSIST FROM EASTERN CANADA TO THE NORTHEAST STATES/GREAT LAKES
   VICINITY...WITH HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES.
   
   ...NV/UT/SOUTHEAST ORE/SOUTHERN ID/SOUTHEAST CA...
   WITH A THERMALLY ENHANCED SURFACE LOW ACROSS THE GREAT
   BASIN...CRITICAL CONDITIONS MAY BE APPROACHED ACROSS
   CENTRAL/SOUTHERN NV THIS AFTERNOON...OWING TO BREEZY CONDITIONS
   /SUSTAINED 15-20 MPH/ AND A HOT AIRMASS/LOW RH. IN ADDITION...SOME
   DRY THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE POSSIBLE ACROSS NV/SOUTHEAST CA.
   
   OTHERWISE...FARTHER NORTH AND EAST...THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN
   COMMON ACROSS A LARGE PORTION OF THE EASTERN/NORTHERN GREAT BASIN
   AND INTERMOUNTAIN WEST BENEATH THE UPPER RIDGE. SUFFICIENTLY HIGH
   PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES SUGGEST A PREDOMINANCE OF WET
   THUNDERSTORMS FOR MOST LOCALES...ALTHOUGH LIGHTNING INDUCED FIRE
   STARTS AND GUSTY/ERRATIC WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY
   THUNDERSTORMS.
   
   ...SOUTHEAST STATES/NORTHERN FL...
   AS UPPER RIDGE/HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST
   STATES...PERSISTENCE OF EASTERLY LOW LEVEL TRAJECTORIES SHOULD
   RESULT IN SLIGHTLY HIGHER DEWPOINTS/RH VALUES TODAY.
   NEVERTHELESS...GIVEN VERY WARM TEMPERATURES...RH VALUES MAY APPROACH
   CRITICAL VALUES FOR A SHORT DURATION DURING THE AFTERNOON. BROAD
   SCALE WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT...GENERALLY 5-10 MPH OR LESS.
   
   ...SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS...
   SOUTH OF A FRONTAL BOUNDARY STALLED ACROSS NORTHERN KS...HOT/DRY AND
   BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE AGAIN EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTH
   CENTRAL PLAINS TODAY. SUSTAINED SOUTH WINDS OF 15-20 MPH /WITH SOME
   GUSTS TO 25-30 MPH/ WILL BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY FROM THE TX/OK
   PANHANDLES INTO NORTHERN OK/SOUTHERN KS. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WILL
   REACH THE MIDDLE/UPPER 90S...WITH MINIMUM RH VALUES OF 20-30
   PERCENT.

   MUCH OF THE EASTERN GREAT BASIN AND ADJACENT PORTIONS OF THE
