Discussion:
Exiting trough will give way to ridging later on Sat but a return to Pacific troughing and unsettled weather will occur Sun. Mixing will be ample during this period and accompanied with areas of stronger transport winds. Ventilation overall will be unusually high most areas. Widespread precipitation is also expected Sun-Sun night and provide some clean out conditions.

Trough impacts will be the main weather pattern during this period. This will lead to unusually high mixing heights and extended periods of stronger transport wind flow. Therefore, ventilation will be good, relative to the time of year. Widespread precipitation is also expected.
