   ACROSS THE WEST...SOME LIGHT OFFSHORE WINDS MAY PERSIST ACROSS PARTS
   OF THE SOUTHERN CA MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS DURING THE MORNING...BUT
   WEAKENING HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT BASIN WILL RESULT IN A

   MIDDAY. OTHERWISE...BROAD BUT STRONG CYCLONIC UPPER FLOW WILL PERSIST
   ACROSS THE WESTERN HALF OF THE COUNTRY AS A TROUGH DIGS SOUTH AND
   EAST ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES.
