A MID-LEVEL HIGH WILL CONTINUE TO EXTEND ACROSS THE REGION BETWEEN  
UPPER HIGH CENTERS OFF CALIFORNIA AND NEAR 35N/175E THROUGH THE  
WEEKEND AS A BRIEF SURGE IN MOISTURE PASSES FROM EAST TO WEST.  
EARLY NEXT WEEK, CURRENT TROPICAL STORM LANE (10.4N/126.4W AS OF  
09Z) IS FORECAST TO TRACK WNW TO NEAR 15N/150W PER THE LATEST NHC  
UPDATE WITH A TREND WESTWARD JUST SOUTH OF THE BIG ISLAND NEXT  
TUE-THU PER THE ENSEMBLE CONSENSUS AND YESTERDAY'S NHC/WPC DAY 6-7  
(TUE/WED) COORDINATION CALL. ENSEMBLES ALSO INDICATE THE UPPER  
HIGH NEAR THE DATELINE TO MOVE EASTWARD TO ABOUT 36N/160W BY NEXT  
THURSDAY WHICH SHOULD HELP KEEP THE SYSTEM TO THE SOUTH OF THE  
AREA. PRECIPITATION IS HIGHLY UNCERTAIN NEXT WEEK AS IT DEPENDS ON  
HOW CLOSE THE SYSTEM APPROACHES HAWAI'I. AS ALWAYS, PLEASE CONSULT  
THE LATEST FORECAST FROM THE NHC AND LATER THE CPHC.
