.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0118 AM CDT Fri Jul 23 2021/
A mid-level shortwave trough will move across Montana on Friday.
Moderate mid-level flow which is present this morning is expected to
weaken through the day. Deep mixing is expected across the northern
Rockies during the afternoon hours. Surface winds are expected to
strengthen as some of this moderate mid-level flow reaches the
surface. However, due to the weakening flow through the day,
sustained winds may only peak around 15 to 20 mph. Therefore,
critical conditions are expected to remain isolated with widespread
elevated conditions likely.
Elsewhere, wet, monsoonal thunderstorms are expected to be numerous
across the Southwest and the southern Great Basin.
