   VALID 311200Z - 011200Z

   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST IDAHO AND
   SOUTHWEST MONTANA...

   A CRITICAL AREA HAS BEEN ADDED OVER PORTIONS OF THE UPPER SNAKE
   RIVER PLAIN OF IDAHO AND THE ADJACENT RANGES ACROSS ERN ID/SWRN
   MT...WHERE SUSTAINED WLY WINDS OF 20-25 MPH ARE EXPECTED TO COMBINE
   WITH MINIMUM RH VALUES OF 10-15 PERCENT ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON. ANY
   FIRE STARTS FROM LIGHTNING ACTIVITY DURING THE D1/SAT PERIOD WILL BE
   EXACERBATED BY CRITICAL WIND/RH CONDITIONS ON D2/SUN ACROSS THIS
   AREA. THE SOUTHEAST PORTION OF THE CRITICAL AREA MAY ALSO SEE
   ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS EARLY IN THE DAY ON D2/SUN. 

   ELSEWHERE...THE ELEVATED AND ISOLATED DRY-TSTM DELINEATIONS REMAIN
   MOSTLY UNCHANGED...OTHER THAN A SMALL WESTWARD EXPANSION OF THE
   ISOLATED DRY-TSTM AREA INTO CENTRAL NV. SEE THE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION
   BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.

   ..DEAN.. 07/30/2016

   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0225 AM CDT SAT JUL 30 2016/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER TROUGH OVER THE NORTHERN ROCKIES WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK
   EASTWARD ON SUNDAY. ANOTHER SHORTWAVE WILL APPROACH THE PACIFIC
   NORTHWEST COAST BY 12Z MONDAY AND THIS WILL LEAD TO CONTINUED
   ENHANCED WESTERLY DEEP LAYER FLOW OVER THE PAC NW AND NORTHERN
   ROCKIES. IT WILL REMAIN BREEZY AND DRY OVER PORTIONS OF THE GREAT
   BASIN AND ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS PARTS
   OF NORTHERN NV INTO SOUTHERN/EASTERN ID AND SOUTHWEST MT. W/NW WINDS
   WILL APPROACH 15-20 MPH WITH SOME HIGHER GUSTS AND RH VALUES WILL
   FALL INTO THE 10-20 PERCENT RANGE. ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS ALSO
   WILL BE POSSIBLE FROM PARTS OF EASTERN NV THROUGH NORTHERN
   UT/EASTERN ID AND INTO WESTERN WY AND SOUTH-CENTRAL MT. PW VALUES
   WILL GENERALLY BE LESS THAN 0.75 IN...EXCEPT ACROSS UT WHERE THEY
   MAY BE A BIT HIGHER...AND INVERTED-V THERMODYNAMIC PROFILES WILL
   PROHIBIT MUCH IN THE WAY OF WETTING RAINS. THIS WILL LEAD TO THREAT
   OF LIGHTNING IGNITIONS GIVEN DRY FUELS.
