.DISCUSSION...Gusty 20-foot winds this afternoon over southeast
portions of the area will diminish this evening. Winds should be
lighter across all of the area Sunday but easterly breezes could
affect locales near the New Mexico state line Monday. That east
wind will bring increased moisture and the chance for mainly
afternoon and evening thunderstorms to eastern areas from Monday
into mid week.
