   SWLY SURFACE WINDS APPROACHING 20 MPH ARE STILL EXPECTED AMIDST MIN

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   A MID-LEVEL TROUGH WILL APPROACH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
   COAST...RESULTING IN STRENGTHENING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ACROSS MUCH OF
   THE REGION. DOWNSTREAM...THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN ALOFT WILL FEATURE
   LITTLE CHANGE...AS AN EXPANSIVE CYCLONE REMAINS CENTERED OVER
   KY...AND RIDGING PERSISTS OVER THE PLAINS STATES.

   ...PORTIONS OF THE FAR NORTHWEST GREAT BASIN...
   DUE TO THE AFOREMENTIONED STRENGTHENING FLOW ALOFT...BREEZY
   CONDITIONS WILL BE EXPERIENCED IN THE LEE OF THE NORTHERN
   SIERRA/SOUTHERN CASCADES TODAY. SUSTAINED WINDS AROUND 15-20 MPH
   SHOULD MATERIALIZE BY MID-DAY. MOREOVER...THE COMBINATION OF
