...INCREASING THUNDERSTORM CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEK...

DISCUSSION
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE WARM AND DRY AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION. EXPECT OVERNIGHT RELATIVE HUMIDITY RECOVERIES TO BE MODERATE TO POOR...ESPECIALLY ALONG RIDGETOPS AGAIN TONIGHT. HIGH LEVEL MONSOON MOISTURE IS MOVING INTO THE REGION AND THERE COULD BE AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM IN CENTRAL OREGON OR OVER THE NORTHEAST MOUNTAINS THIS EVENING. EACH DAY THIS WEEK...SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL SPREAD NORTH AND EAST AS SEVERAL WEAK DISTURBANCES INTERACT WITH THE MONSOON FLOW. HOWEVER...THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD MOSTLY STAY SOUTH OF THE WASHINGTON BORDER. ANY STORMS THAT DO DEVELOP WILL INITIALLY HAVE LIMITED PRECIPITATION. WILL MONITOR STORM DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS CHECK MODEL CONSISTENCY TO DETERMINE IF ANY RED FLAG WARNINGS WILL NEED TO BE ISSUED IN THE COMING DAYS.
