   VALID 311200Z - 061200Z

   UPPER PATTERN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD -- 12Z/SUN --
   IS EXPECTED TO BE CHARACTERIZED BY A TROUGH OVER THE LWR/MID MS
   VALLEYS...RIDGING ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN AND SOUTHWEST...AND AN
   APPROACHING TROUGH OFF THE W COAST. EWD PROGRESSION OF THE TROUGH
   INITIALLY OFF THE W COAST WILL LEAD TO A DAMPENING OF THE GREAT
   BASIN RIDGE BY EARLY D5/TUE. AFTER THIS DAMPENING OCCURS...GENERAL
   TROUGHINESS IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST ACROSS WRN CONUS THROUGH THE
   REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. SOME WEAK RIDGING MAY PERSIST FROM THE SRN
   PLAINS NEWD INTO THE MID MS VALLEY THROUGH MID-WEEK. PREDICTABILITY
   BEGINS TO DECREASE ON D4/TUE WITH A CONTINUED DECREASE THEREAFTER AS
   MODEL GUIDANCE DIVERGES. 

   ...D3/SUN-D4/MON: GREAT BASIN AND NRN AZ... 
   SWLY WINDS ALOFT ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING
   TROUGH. DEEP MIXING COUPLED WITH THE ENHANCED FLOW ALOFT WILL
   SUPPORT GUSTY SURFACE WINDS AMIDST WARM AND VERY DRY CONDITIONS.
   CRITICAL METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS APPEAR LIKELY BUT GENERALLY
   MOIST/UNRECEPTIVE FUELS ARE EXPECTED TO TEMPER ANY POTENTIAL THREAT.
   AS SUCH...NO AREAS WILL BE DELINEATED WITH THIS FORECAST BUT THE
   AREA WILL BE REVIEWED CLOSELY IN SUBSEQUENT FORECASTS.
