.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0140 AM CDT Thu Jun 30 2022/

Mainly zonal mid-level flow is expected across the northern CONUS as
upper ridging prevails across the central and southern U.S. today.
While mostly quiescent fire weather conditions are expected across
much of the CONUS, localized fire-spread concerns exist across the
Interior West. First, Elevated dry and windy conditions may occur in
terrain-favoring areas of the Great Basin, especially in southern
Nevada during the afternoon. Mid-level monsoonal moisture will
continue to meander over the Great Basin into the central Rockies as
in past several days, promoting isolated to potentially scattered
thunderstorm development by afternoon peak heating. While storms
should mostly be wet, a couple of dry strikes are possible, and it
is not out of the question to get a lightning-induced ignition in
any patchy areas of modestly to critically dry fuels.
