   VALID 311200Z - 061200Z

   LARGE-SCALE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS SHOULD REMAIN GENERALLY LOW ACROSS
   THE CONUS THROUGH MUCH OF THE EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD. A MOSTLY
   ZONAL/SPLIT FLOW PATTERN INITIALLY OVER THE CONUS ON D3/TUE WILL
   TRANSITION TO LARGE-SCALE UPPER RIDGING OVER THE WEST...AND UPPER
   TROUGHING OVER MUCH OF THE CNTRL/ERN CONUS BY D6/FRI. AN UPPER LOW
   IS FORECAST TO APPROACH THE SRN CA COAST NEXT WEEKEND...WITH SOME
   INCREASE IN MID-LEVEL WINDS POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
   SOUTHWEST AND GREAT BASIN BY D8/SUN. DIFFERENCES IN THE PLACEMENT
   AND TIMING OF THIS UPPER LOW AND ASSOCIATED ENHANCED MID-LEVEL WINDS
   LOWER CONFIDENCE IN WHERE STRONG/GUSTY SFC WINDS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS
   PARTS OF THE WRN CONUS NEXT WEEKEND. IN ADDITION...FUEL
   RECEPTIVENESS MAY REMAIN MARGINAL ACROSS MUCH OF THE GREAT BASIN.
   GIVEN THESE UNCERTAINTIES...NO PROBABILITIES HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED
   FOR D8/SUN.
