   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0329 AM CDT THU SEP 02 2010/
   
   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A STRONG UPPER TROUGH WILL PROGRESS EWD INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES
   REGION...WHILE AN UPPER RIDGE BECOMES ESTABLISHED OVER THE DESERT
   SOUTHWEST. A COLD FRONT WILL PROGRESS S/WWD ACROSS TX AND INTO
   NM/AZ...AND AID IN THE RETURN OF LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE TO PORTIONS OF
   THE DESERT SOUTHWEST. A SHORTWAVE UPPER TROUGH WILL APPROACH THE PAC
   NW COAST...AND RESULT IN ISOLD-SCT THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE CASCADES
   OF WA/OR.
   
   ...CASCADES OF OR/SRN WA...
   WEAK MID-LEVEL INSTABILITY WILL DEVELOP AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING
   SHORTWAVE UPPER TROUGH. STRONG DAYTIME HEATING SHOULD RESULT IN
   DIURNALLY DRIVEN ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE
   CASCADES OF OR AND SRN WA. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS MAY PRODUCE
   LITTLE TO NO RAINFALL...AS MID-LEVEL FLOW INCREASES AND THE
   SUB-CLOUD LAYER REMAINS HOT/DRY. MARGINAL FUEL CONDITIONS DUE TO
   RECENT RAINFALL OVER THE REGION COMBINED WITH LIMITED AREAL
   THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WILL PRECLUDE A MORE SIGNIFICANT THREAT.
