Valid 190100Z - 191200Z


Severe thunderstorms will not occur over the contiguous United
States through early Friday morning.

A belt of strong mid-level flow will extend from the CA coast
northeast to the southern portion of the Canadian prairie provinces
and east to the Northeast.  A large-scale trough will be maintained
off the West Coast and a weak mid-level low/trough will meander over
TX.  In the low levels, surface high pressure will reside over the
Gulf Coast states.  A few thunderstorms are possible with weak
convection in a scant-buoyancy regime along the northern half of the
West Coast and perhaps later tonight over Deep South TX.
