..FLOOD POTENTIAL
 
 
 
THE FLOOD POTENTIAL OVER THE STATE IS CURRENTLY LOW.  
   
..HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION
 
 
 
THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN CONTINUES TO BE DOMINATED BY A TROUGH OVER THE  
NORTHEASTERN PACIFIC THAT EXTENDS INTO BRITISH COLUMBIA AND YUKON  
TERRITORY AND A HIGH AMPLITUDE RIDGE OVER THE EASTERN BERING/WEST  
COAST OF ALASKA. VERY LITTLE PRECIPITATION HAS FALLEN IN THE STATE  
UNDER THIS DRY NORTHERLY FLOW ALOFT. THE ONLY PRECIPITATION IS THE  
SHOWERS OVER THE PANHANDLE AS THEY ROTATE AROUND THE LOW COMPLEX  
NEAR THE SOUTHEAST.  
 
IN THE LONGER RANGE, THIS PATTERN CONTINUE TO HOLD TOGETHER THROUGH  
WEDNESDAY. BY THAT TIME THE RIDGE OVER THE WEST BEGINS THE BREAK  
DOWN AND THE STATE BECOMES AWASH IN A BLEND OF LARGE SCALE  
TROUGHING.  
   
..PRECIPITATION
