701 AM MST THU JAN 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...

WESTERLY WINDS WILL BRING SEASONABLY WARM MOSTLY DRY WEATHER TO
SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST TEXAS TODAY. AN UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE WILL PRODUCE BREEZY TO WINDY AND COOLER WEATHER ON
FRIDAY WITH SCATTERED LOWLAND RAIN SHOWERS AND CHANCES FOR HIGH
MOUNTAIN SNOW. A DEEPER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL RESULT IN VERY
WINDY, COOL AND WET WEATHER FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY WITH
WIDESPREAD RAIN SHOWERS ACROSS THE LOWER ELEVATIONS WITH POSSIBLE
HEAVY SNOW OVER THE MOUNTAINS. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING COOL DRY
WEATHER ON SUNDAY BEFORE ANOTHER DISTURBANCE CAUSES POSSIBLE
BREEZY TO WINDY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH A FEW LOWLAND RAIN AND
MOUNTAIN SNOW SHOWERS LATER NEXT WEEK. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY
VALUES WILL BE BETWEEN THE UPPER 40S AND MID 50S. VENT RATES
TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY WILL BE GOOD TO EXCELLENT EVERYWHERE,
EXCEPT IN THE MOUNTAIN AREAS WHERE MAX VENT RATES ARE POOR.
