356 PM MST Thu Dec 8 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Expect dry conditions with above normal daytime
temperatures for the next several days. A Pacific air mass moving
across the region will bring periodic cloudiness.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Quiet weather continues across the southwest. Zonal flow aloft
will remain the dominant fact as most of the atmospheric
instability passes well north of Arizona. A weak shortwave will
move across Utah and Colorado this weekend and the four corners
area may see some precipitation spread over state lines and into
Apache County. The bulk of any precipitation is expected to fall
over the Chuska Mountains with little to no accumulation
anticipated at this time.

Otherwise no significant moisture is expected for the near term
forecast. There is a chance for some gusty winds and precipitation
in the extreme long term however due to the distant nature of of
this system, confidence is low and have kept pops and wind speeds
conservative at this time.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 00Z forecast...Expect VFR conditions under
periods of mid and high level clouds over the next 24 hours.
