   ...SYNOPSIS...
   EARLY MORNING WATER VAPOR LOOPS SHOW WELL DEFINED UPPER LOW
   CIRCULATION APPROACHING THE WA/ORE COAST. THIS STORM SYSTEM WILL
   HELP FOCUS HEAVY PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE WA/ORE CASCADES. THE LARGE
   UPPER TROUGH IN THE WEST WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN AS 110-120 KT MID
   LEVEL JET DIVES SEWD TOWARD CA BY EARLY MONDAY. MID LEVEL RIDGE WILL
   BUILD OVER CNTRL CANADA IN RESPONSE TO AMPLIFYING UPSTREAM SYSTEM.
   ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RIDGE ARE FORECAST
   ACROSS MUCH OF THE CNTRL/SRN PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST. FIRE CONCERNS
   WILL BE LIMITED TO THE SRN HIGH PLAINS NEAR THE LEE TROUGH. THE
   COMBINATION OF LOW RH AND MODERATELY STRONG S/SWLY WINDS WILL
   INCREASE POTENTIAL FOR WIND DRIVEN FIRE.
