   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0227 AM CDT Tue Jul 25 2017/

   The slow-moving midlevel low centered over northern CA is forecast
   to begin ejecting northeast on Wednesday, though in general the
   pattern will change little compared to previous days, with an upper
   ridge persisting across the Southwest into the southern Plains. A
   weak surface ridge will settle into portions of the central and
   northern Plains in the wake of a cold front, resulting in light
   winds and somewhat cooler conditions. 

   ...OR/Northern CA eastward into southern MT...
   With the midlevel low expected to shift only slightly eastward
   through the first half of the period, scattered thunderstorms are
   expected over many of the same areas that have been affected on
   previous days. Thermodynamic profiles will may be slightly cooler
   and more moist compared to previous days, due to the cumulative
   effects of repeated rounds of convection. However, widespread
   wetting rainfall is not anticipated, and, due to the potential for
   abundant lightning to impact areas where dry fuels remain, some
   threat for lightning-related ignitions will continue.
