   DAY 2 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0323 AM CDT TUE JUN 28 2016

   VALID 291200Z - 301200Z

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE INTER-MOUNTAIN WEST RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO DE-AMPLIFY SLOWLY
   THROUGH THE PERIOD...AS A TROUGH DEEPENS ALONG THE WEST COAST.
   MEANWHILE...CYCLONIC FLOW SHOULD CONTINUE TO ENVELOP THE EASTERN
   HALF OF THE CONUS...REINFORCED BY SEVERAL IMPULSES EMBEDDED WITHIN
   THIS FLOW.

   ...PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN GREAT BASIN...
   AS MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO STREAM NORTH...THE ZONE OF
   GREATEST DRY-THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL WILL ALSO ADVANCE NORTH. ACROSS
   THE SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN...TROPOSPHERIC MOISTURE CONTENT WILL BECOME
   HIGH ENOUGH SUCH THAT THUNDERSTORMS GENERALLY SWITCH TO WET MODES.
   HOWEVER...PW VALUES AROUND 0.7-0.9 INCHES WILL EXTEND FROM
   NORTHEASTERN NV TO SOUTHWESTERN WY...FAVORING A MIXTURE OF WET/DRY
   THUNDERSTORM MODES. ADDITIONALLY...DEEP/WELL-MIXED BOUNDARY LAYER
   PROFILES WILL DECREASE WETTING RAINFALL POTENTIAL. CONSIDERING
   INCREASING LIGHTNING DURING PREVIOUS DAYS...AND THE RECEPTIVE STATE
   OF FUELS...EVEN A MIX OF WET/DRY MODES SHOULD YIELD A CONSIDERABLE
   ENHANCEMENT OF FIRE-WEATHER CONCERNS ON WEDNESDAY. AS SUCH...AN
   ISOLATED DRY-THUNDER AREA IS INTRODUCED ACROSS THE NORTHERN GREAT
   BASIN.
