   A lack of strong winds across much of the western CONUS will
   preclude wind/RH concerns on Monday. The primary fire weather
   concern will be dry thunderstorms in northern California, southern
   Oregon, and northwest Nevada. Instability is expected to be greater
   on Monday with slightly faster storm motion than Sunday. This could
   suggest the need for a scattered dry thunderstorm area, but PWAT
   values will be at or close to 1 inch which may lead to a combination
   of wet and dry storms. Therefore, will highlight this area with
   isolated dry thunderstorm potential at this time. 

   Otherwise, dry conditions and east winds around 15 mph in far west
   Texas would support an elevated area. However, significant monsoon
   precipitation over the past 7 days (estimated over an inch in most
   locations) precludes the need for an elevated area.
