   The upper-level ridge will start to shift eastward on Monday with
   some increasing mid-level southwesterly flow on the western
   periphery of the ridge. This will overspread 30 to 40 knot mid-level
   flow from northern California into the Pacific Northwest. Some of
   these stronger winds are expected to mix toward the surface,
   especially where downslope flow is maximized in the lee of the
   Sierras. The two primary areas with the greatest chance for elevated
   conditions will be from northeast California northeastward into
   southeast Oregon and in west central Nevada. Some locally critical
   conditions may be possible in west-central Nevada, but the risk area
   is too localized at this time to draw a threat area.

   In addition, some dry lightning is possible from northern California
   northeastward to near the Continental Divide in eastern
   Idaho/western Montana. Storms appear to be more isolated and perhaps
   a bit more wet in CA/OR and are expected to be more widespread and
   dry in the northern Rockies. No dry thunderstorm area has been drawn
   at this time, but trends will continue to be monitored to see if an
   area needs to be added for some or all of this region in future
