An extended period of quasi-zonal flow should persist across the
nation through mid-week. Surface high pressure will re-develop over
the Great Plains and maintain a cold and dry air mass over much of
the central U.S. Periodic increases in westerly low-level winds will
be possible across New Mexico and the southern High Plains within a
downslope regime, but mild temperatures are currently expected to
mitigate the potential for critically low relative humidity values.
While the details are still uncertain, the general trend into late
next week will be for more substantial amplification of a trough
over the western U.S.
