|Overall Severe Weather Threat|
It is looking as if the atmosphere is going to be moist enough to provide some stronger storms, unlike areas to the east, where the air is extremely dry. As of now, it does appear that instability values are within the 1000 j/kg realm within the slight risk area. However, shearing values in the atmosphere, while they are substantial, are located to the west. I do believe that, with time, we should see these shearing values shift east. The reason they are currently to the west is that there is indeed a dry line just off the Rocky Mountain range, as seen below.
