...SYNOPSIS...
SWLY FLOW ALOFT DOWNSTREAM FROM A SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER CA/NV WILL
CONTINUE ACROSS SERN AZ...SRN NM...AND FAR W TX TODAY. A SFC HIGH
ALONG THE E COAST WILL SHIFT EWD BY TONIGHT...WHILE ANOTHER BROAD
AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE MOVES SEWD FROM MT/WY ACROSS THE NRN/CNTRL
PLAINS THROUGH THIS EVENING. A WEAK SFC LOW IS LOCATED ACROSS WRN
AZ/SRN NV EARLY THIS MORNING TO THE E OF THE UPPER TROUGH...AND IT
SHOULD SHIFT SLOWLY EWD TODAY. THE RESULTANT MODEST PRESSURE
GRADIENT BETWEEN THIS SFC LOW AND HIGH PRESSURE APPROACHING FROM THE
PLAINS WILL INDUCE SLY/SWLY WINDS OF 10-20 MPH ACROSS A SMALL
PORTION OF SERN AZ...SRN NM...AND FAR W TX THIS AFTERNOON.
ASSOCIATED DOWNSLOPE WARMING/DRYING WILL CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERED RH
VALUES FOR A FEW HOURS...ESPECIALLY ALONG AND NEAR THE INTERNATIONAL
BORDER. HOWEVER...FUELS ARE UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS THIS REGION...AND
WITH ONLY A MARGINAL REDUCTION IN RH VALUES EXPECTED...NO ELEVATED
AREA HAS BEEN DELINEATED FOR SERN AZ/SRN NM/FAR W TX.
