.DISCUSSION...
Southwest winds will become fairly strong today, then gusty
conditions will persist through tonight, due to an upper level trough
passing north of NM and a lee trough at the surface. A cold front
will cross on Saturday shifting winds out of the northwest in the
morning, then the north during the afternoon. Lighter winds are then
expected into early in the coming week as a strong ridge of high
pressure builds over the west coast. In the wake of Saturday`s cold
fronts, ventilation will be poor Sunday through at least Tuesday.
