   Valid 241200Z - 251200Z

   Upper troughing currently in place over much of the central and
   eastern CONUS is expected to persist throughout the day while
   gradually shifting eastward. Several shortwave troughs will progress
   through its base, the strongest of which is now moving into the
   upper Midwest and is expected to be over the upper Great Lakes by
   12Z Sunday. Farther west, upper ridging currently extending from the
   Southwest northwestward into the northeast Pacific Ocean will
   gradually shift eastward in response to the eastward shift of the
   upper trough. At the surface, ridging will build across the Plains
   while a cold front moves slowly across the southern Plains and

   ...Mountains and Eastern Foothills of Southern CA...
   Mid-level moisture is expected to move around western periphery of
   the upper ridge centered near the AZ/NM/Mexico border intersection.
   This mid-level moisture may support isolated thunderstorm
   development during the afternoon, especially over the higher
   terrain. A very warm and deeply mixed boundary layer will support
   high cloud bases and sub-cloud evaporation of any precipitation that
   does form, resulting in a threat for dry thunderstorms. Threat for
   dry thunderstorms coupled with at least modestly dry fuels across
   the region merits the introduction of an isolated dry thunderstorm
   threat area with this forecast.
