.DISCUSSION...
Gusty winds are expected each day through the end of the week as a
couple of upper level troughs pass north of New Mexico causing the
flow aloft to strengthen. High temperatures will continue to vary
around 10-14 degrees above normal, and minimum humidities will
continue to crater near and below 10 percent. Humidity recovery will
be fair until Thursday night, when poor humidity recovery is
expected. A Pacific cold front will cross Thursday night with a
northwesterly wind shift and cooler (but still above normal)
temperatures for Friday.
