.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0319 AM CST SAT FEB 28 2015/

...SYNOPSIS...
SWLY FLOW ALOFT DOWNSTREAM FROM A SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER CA/NV WILL
CONTINUE ACROSS SRN NM AND FAR W TX ON D2/SUN. A SFC HIGH ALONG THE
E COAST WILL SHIFT EWD THROUGH THE DAY...WHILE ANOTHER BROAD AREA OF
HIGH PRESSURE MOVES SEWD FROM MT/WY ACROSS THE NRN/CNTRL PLAINS BY
SUN EVENING. A WEAK SFC LOW SHOULD BE IN PLACE ACROSS SRN AZ AND
ADJACENT AREAS OF NRN MEXICO SUN MORNING TO THE S OF THE UPPER
TROUGH. THE RESULTANT MODEST PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THIS SLOWLY
DEEPENING LOW AND HIGH PRESSURE APPROACHING FROM THE PLAINS WILL
LIKELY INDUCE SWLY LOW-LEVEL FLOW ACROSS PORTIONS OF SRN NM AND FAR
W TX SUN AFTERNOON. ASSOCIATED DOWNSLOPE WARMING/DRYING WILL
CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERED RH VALUES FOR A FEW HOURS. HOWEVER...FUELS ARE
FORECAST TO REMAIN UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS THIS REGION...AND WITH ONLY
MARGINALLY ELEVATED WIND SPEEDS EXPECTED...NO AREAS HAVE BEEN
DELINEATED FOR SRN NM/FAR W TX.
