..SYNOPSIS
 
 
AN UPPER-LEVEL SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST  
AND NORTHERN ROCKIES TODAY WITH AN ASSOCIATED SURFACE COLD FRONT  
SWEEPING EAST AND SOUTH THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.  
HOT/DRY/UNSTABLE CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ACROSS MUCH OF  
THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT AND NORTH/WEST OF THE  
SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE IN THE SOUTHWEST AND ROCKY MOUNTAINS.  
 
ELEVATED CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP JUST AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT ACROSS  
EASTERN WASHINGTON/OREGON, BUT CONDITIONS SHOULD BE SHORT-LIVED AND  
FOLLOWED BY COOLER, MOIST AIR. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE  
ALONG THE COLD FRONT ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE INLAND PACIFIC  
NORTHWEST. ADDITIONALLY, ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS MAY FORM ACROSS  
PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES. HOWEVER, THE FORECAST AIRMASS  
CHANGE AND MARGINAL FUEL CONDITIONS WHERE STORMS MAY DEVELOP  
PRECLUDE AN ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORM AREA.
