..no severe thunderstorm areas forecast... 

thunderstorms are possible across portions of the Pacific northwest 
and northern California Wednesday. Isolated thunderstorms are also 
possible across the southern High Plains and Central Plains 
Wednesday evening and overnight. 

A large mid-level low over the eastern Pacific will move little 
during the day 2 period as a disturbance will traverse east along 
the Saskatchewan/Manitoba--U.S. Border on the periphery of a 
flattened central U.S. Ridge. A series of weak impulses will 
promote the development of showers and isolated thunderstorms from 
the California Central Valley north and northeast into ID/NV. Small hail 
may occur with the strongest updrafts in the California Central Valley. 
Farther east, marginal low-level moisture may contribute to widely 
spaced thunderstorms developing in vicinity of a Lee trough over 
parts of the southern High Plains late in the day. Weak elevated 
thunderstorms are possible primarily Wednesday evening/night over 
parts of the Central Plains east to the middle MS valley. 

..maximum risk by hazard... 
Tornado: <2% - none 
wind: <5% - none 
hail: <5% - none
