   Valid 161200Z - 221200Z

   Broad mid/upper troughing will dominate the central and eastern
   portions of the CONUS, with periodic shortwaves migrating through
   the Rockies and southern Plains.  At the surface, Great Basin
   ridging will weaken early in the forecast period (D3/Fri through
   D4/Sat), but become reinforced from D5/Sun onward, setting up a weak
   offshore gradient across portions of southern California and
   vicinity.  At this time, the strength of the gradient should foster
   only localized areas of gusty offshore winds near typically
   terrain-favored areas, although warm surface temperatures,
   critically low RH values, and critically dry fuels should still
   support a potentially high-impact environment near ongoing fires. 
   The region will continue to be monitored in later forecast updates
   for inclusion of 40%/elevated delineations.
