   VALID 281200Z - 291200Z

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   PRIMARY BELT OF WLYS WILL CONTINUE SAGGING SWD ACROSS THE PAC NW AND
   NRN ROCKIES...AS AN UPPER TROUGH AMPLIFIES OVER THE GULF OF ALASKA.
   AS THIS OCCURS...A LEE SFC TROUGH WILL BECOME ESTABLISHED OVER THE
   PAC NW...AND SUPPORT AN INCREASE IN ONSHORE WINDS THROUGH THE
   COLUMBIA BASIN ACROSS PARTS OF ORE/WA. ELSEWHERE...A WEAK SRN STREAM
   UPPER TROUGH WILL SLOWLY MOVE EWD ACROSS THE SRN/CNTRL PLAINS. DRY
   AIR OVER MUCH OF THE WRN CONUS SHOULD RESULT IN REDUCED TSTM
   POTENTIAL.

   ...PARTS OF THE COLUMBIA BASIN OF N-CNTRL ORE AND S-CNTRL WA...
   A DEVELOPING LEE SFC TROUGH ACROSS ERN WA WILL FOSTER A MODEST
   INCREASE IN LOW-LEVEL ONSHORE WINDS. MODEL FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW
   SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS PEAKING AT 15-20 MPH /LOCALLY STRONGER/ DURING
   THE AFTERNOON. RH VALUES OF 20-25 PERCENT ARE ALSO LIKELY AS DAYTIME
   TEMPERATURES APPROACH 90 F. THESE CONDITIONS WILL SUPPORT AN
   ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER THREAT THROUGH PORTIONS OF THE COLUMBIA BASIN.
