.DISCUSSION...
A trough over the northern Rockies has brought in W-SW flow over NM
this weekend. Breezy W-SW winds are expected to mix down to the sfc
later this afternoon with scattered cumulus quickly moving by
overhead. Winds will calm overnight becoming downslope after
midnight. Surface moisture is expected to increase with the help of
southerly flow pushing further N Sunday. This will help spark
scattered showers/storms Sunday afternoon off the surrounding high
terrain. Storm motion is expected to be quick to the NE. Any passing
storm will be capable of producing gusty and erratic winds.
