   DAY 1 FIRE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0341 AM CDT THU JUL 31 2014

   VALID 311200Z - 011200Z

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   THE UPPER-AIR PATTERN REMAINS IN PLACE WITH AN ERN U.S. TROUGH AND A
   RIDGE OVER THE WEST EXTENDING INTO THE NRN ROCKIES.  WEAK CYCLONIC
   FLOW WILL COVER WASHINGTON AND OREGON...ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE
   UPPER RIDGE.  MONSOONAL MOISTURE UNDER THE UPPER RIDGE COVERS MUCH
   OF THE WEST AND WILL PRODUCE SCATTERED MAINLY AFTERNOON/EARLY
   EVENING THUNDERSTORMS.  MOST STORMS WILL PRODUCE WETTING RAINS.

   ...NERN CA...NWRN NV...S-CNTRL AND ERN OREGON AND CNTRL ID...
   THE AREA WITHIN THE ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORM AREA IS LIKELY TO HAVE
   A MIX OF WET AND DRY THUNDERSTORMS.  OVERALL CONDITIONS ARE SIMILAR
   TO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.  FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW A DEEP DRY MIXED
   LAYER AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT DO FORM WILL HAVE HIGH CLOUD BASES AND
   A BETTER CHANCE FOR THE RAINFALL TO EVAPORATE BEFORE REACHING THE
   GROUND.  FUELS REMAIN DRY ACROSS THE AREA AND IT WILL BE WARM WITH
   HIGHS MOSTLY IN THE 80S AND SURFACE HUMIDITY FROM 15 TO 20 PERCENT. 
   SOME OF THE STORMS MAY ALSO PRODUCE STRONG AND ERRATIC OUTFLOW
   WINDS.
