A PROGRESSIVE LARGE-SCALE PATTERN WILL TAKE HOLD AS A SERIES OF
MIDLEVEL TROUGHS MOVE ACROSS THE CONUS...WITH THE MOST PROMINENT
SHIFTING EWD FROM THE GREAT BASIN/NRN ROCKIES ON SUN/D3 EWD TO THE
MS VALLEY BY TUE/D5. IN THE WAKE OF THIS FEATURE...SFC HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD OVER THE GREAT BASIN AND FAVOR A WEAK OFFSHORE SFC
PRESSURE GRADIENT OVER SRN CA...WHICH IS LIKELY TO PERSIST THROUGH
FRI/D8. HOWEVER...WIND SPEEDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE TOO WEAK TO WARRANT
INCLUSION OF PROBABILITIES. ELSEWHERE...PERIODS OF BREEZY CONDITIONS
WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE WRN/CNTRL CONUS...ESPECIALLY
IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT MOVING ACROSS GREAT PLAINS ON MON/D4. A
WARMING TREND IS FORECAST TO OCCUR OVER THE SOUTHWEST AND GREAT
BASIN MID-LATE NEXT WEEK AS A MIDLEVEL RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE REGION.
