.DISCUSSION...
High pressure aloft will remain over Arizona and New Mexico this
weekend. Daytime max temperatures will again be near record levels
today. Isolated storms are possible during the PM hours today mostly
over the area mountains. A backdoor cool front from will start to
push in from the east beginning late Friday will bring cooler air
and a moisture increase to the region this evening into Saturday.
Temperatures will drop some 10 to 15 degrees back to normal for the
weekend and all of next week as east winds and increased moisture
bring substantial storm chances to the region for the weekend well
into next week. Lowland min RH values will run from 7% to 12% (20-
30% Sacramento mountains) Friday then double on Saturday.
