   The stagnant quasi-zonal flow pattern will begin to break down on
   Tuesday as marginally enhanced mid-level westerly flow (35-45 kt)
   associated with an upper-level jet streak enters the Pacific
   Northwest. At the surface, an area of low pressure will develop,
   beneath the right-exit/diffluence region of the upper-level jet,
   across southern Canada and track into north-central Montana.
   Otherwise, dry conditions will persist across southern portions of
   the Desert Southwest where winds will generally remain light.

   ...Columbia Basin Vicinity...
   Diurnal heating and vertical mixing of the marginally enhanced
   mid-level flow will allow afternoon sustained westerly winds of
   15-20 mph to develop as RH values fall into the 20-25% range amidst
   fuels that are at least marginally receptive to large-fire spread.
   Thus, an elevated fire-weather designation has been introduced for
   the region, with perhaps some potential for locally critical
   conditions, particularly in terrain-favored locations that can act
   to locally enhance wind speeds.
