   ...THERE IS A MRGL RISK OF SVR TSTMS FOR PARTS OF NRN CA AND SWRN
   ORE...

   ...SUMMARY...
   NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED SATURDAY

   LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS OR A BRIEF TORNADO ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
   AND SOUTHWEST OREGON FROM LATE MORNING TO MID-AFTERNOON.

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A POTENT MID-LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE ERN PACIFIC WILL MOVE ASHORE FROM
   NRN CA TO WA...DAMPENING AS IT PENETRATES INLAND ACROSS THE
   NORTHWEST. ATTENDANT SURFACE CYCLONE SHOULD TRACK FROM THE PACIFIC
   NW COAST TOWARDS THE SRN CANADIAN ROCKIES WITH A COLD FRONT SWEEPING
   E ACROSS THE NORTHWEST.

   ...NRN CA TO SWRN ORE...
   COOL MID-LEVEL TEMPS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROUGH WILL LIKELY SUPPORT
   SPORADIC CHARGE SEPARATION WITH THE STRONGEST CONVECTIVE
   ELEMENTS...MAINLY FROM LATE MORNING THROUGH MID-AFTERNOON. DESPITE
   DAMPENING OF THE TROUGH...INITIALLY INTENSE LOW/MID-LEVEL WINDS
   /CHARACTERIZED BY 700 MB FLOW AOA 60 KT/ WILL FAVOR ENLARGED
   HODOGRAPHS AND RATHER STRONG DEEP-LAYER SHEAR. BUOYANCY WILL REMAIN
   MEAGER...SBCAPE AOB 500 J/KG...WITH LIMITED SURFACE INSOLATION. BUT
   GIVEN THE STRENGTH OF THE WIND FIELDS...LOCALLY SEVERE WIND GUSTS
   AND EVEN A BRIEF TORNADO APPEAR POSSIBLE. BY LATE DAY...INCREASINGLY
   VEERED/DIMINISHING WINDS WILL CURTAIL THE MARGINAL SEVERE THREAT.
