.DISCUSSION...
An upper level trough will cross today and tonight with high clouds.
Another upper level trough will pass north of New Mexico on Friday,
and there will be a surface trough in the lee of the southern Sangre
de Cristo Mountains, causing southwest winds to gust up to 25 mph.
Winds will weaken some on Friday while shifting out of the north and
remaining gusty as a cold front dives southward into the state. There
will also be a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms on
Saturday. After cooling high temperatures today through Saturday,
readings will rebound early next week. In the wake of Saturday`s
Pacific front, there will be poor ventilation early next week.
