   ...SYNOPSIS...

   A DEEP-LAYER CYCLONE SITUATED OFF THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST WILL
   CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DRIFT NEWD IN RESPONSE TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF A
   SHORT-WAVE TROUGH FROM THE GREAT PLAINS INTO OH/TN VALLEYS AND CNTRL
   GULF STATES. IN THE WAKE OF THIS LATTER FEATURE...A MID-LEVEL
   ANTICYCLONE WILL STRENGTHEN OVER NWRN MEXICO AND THE SRN ROCKIES.
   MEANWHILE...A BELT OF STRONG MID-LEVEL WINDS PRESENT WITHIN THE BASE
   OF A NERN PACIFIC LONG-WAVE TROUGH WILL DEVELOP EWD THROUGH THE NRN
   INTERMOUNTAIN REGION INTO NRN PLAINS.

   AT THE SURFACE...A COLD FRONT FROM THE UPPER MS VALLEY INTO CNTRL
   HIGH PLAINS WILL WEAKEN TODAY WHILE SHIFTING EWD. AHEAD OF THIS
   FRONT...SURFACE RIDGING FROM THE LOWER GREAT LAKES TO ARKLATEX WILL
   MAINTAIN OFFSHORE FLOW ACROSS THE GULF COAST THROUGH THE DAY ONE
   PERIOD.

   ...PACIFIC NW INTO NRN INTERMOUNTAIN REGION...

   A NUMBER OF WEAK VORTICITY MAXIMA WILL MOVE INLAND THIS PERIOD ON
   THE CYCLONIC SIDE OF THE HIGH-MOMENTUM AIR STREAM MENTIONED ABOVE.
   COOLING ALOFT AND FORCING FOR ASCENT ASSOCIATED WITH THESE FEATURES
   WILL PROMOTE A FEW TSTMS TODAY INTO THIS EVENING ALONG AND IN THE
   WAKE OF A PACIFIC FRONT MOVING EWD ACROSS THE REGION.

   ...FAR ERN NEW ENGLAND...

   THOUGH THE MAJORITY OF TSTM ACTIVITY WILL REMAIN OFF THE COAST...A
   FEW STORMS COULD APPROACH THE CAPE COD AREA TODAY INTO THIS EVENING
   WITHIN THE NRN SEMI-CIRCLE OF THE DEEP-LAYER CYCLONE.

   ...S FL...

   ISOLATED TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TODAY INVOF A WEAK FRONT SETTLING
   SWD THROUGH THE REGION.

   ...MIDWEST...

   SPORADIC LIGHTNING HAS BEEN OBSERVED EARLY THIS MORNING OVER THE
   MIDWEST WITHIN THE WARM-CONVEYOR AIR STREAM PRECEDING THE GREAT
   PLAINS MID-LEVEL TROUGH. WHILE A FEW LIGHTNING STRIKES WILL REMAIN
   POSSIBLE...STRONGER FORCING FOR ASCENT WILL BECOME PROGRESSIVELY
   DISPLACED FROM A MORE MOIST/UNSTABLE AIR MASS PRESENT OVER THE
   CNTRL/SRN PLAINS. AS SUCH...NO TSTM AREA WILL BE INCLUDED.
