.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0302 AM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017/

...Synopsis...
An upper-level shortwave trough will move eastward across the
central Rockies on Thursday with an enhanced band of westerly flow
aloft.  At the surface, low pressure will deepen over western
Kansas, resulting in an increased pressure gradient across New
Mexico.

...Northwestern New Mexico and adjacent areas...
A hot, dry airmass will linger over the area on Thursday.  As
vertical mixing occurs in a deepening boundary layer, afternoon RH
values will fall into the single digits and sustained wind speeds
will increase to 15-20 mph.  Given the dry fuels across the region,
elevated fire weather conditions will exist.
